a lil note. i will wait for you…

So Kabir recently saw the movie, The Book of Life and has absolutely fallen in love with it. He talks in the most adorable way about the love that Manolo feels for Maria. 🙂 ” Manolo really loves Maria, no Mamma?”

What he took to most were the songs. Humming them to himself at first and then asking me to play it. One song in particular seemed to have caught his fancy….“I will wait for you..” by the band Mumford and Sons. So much so that he wants to hear it all the time. On repeat and he just doesn’t get tired of it.

Last night took the cake though….when he asked me to sing it to him as his new lullaby to sleep! 😀 I started humming…”No Mamma..no..sing!” At that time its pretty much anything to get him to sleep…so I pull out the lyrics on my phone and start singing…

“I Will Wait”

Well, I came home

Like a stone
And I fell heavy into your arms
These days of dust
Which we’ve known
Will blow away with this new sun

But I’ll kneel down,
Wait for now
And I’ll kneel down,
Know my ground

And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

So break my step
And relent
Well, you forgave and I won’t forget
Know what we’ve seen
And him with less
Now in some way shake the excess

‘Cause I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

Now I’ll be bold
As well as strong
And use my head alongside my heart
So tame my flesh
And fix my eyes
A tethered mind freed from the lies

And I’ll kneel down,
Wait for now
I’ll kneel down,
Know my ground

Raise my hands
Paint my spirit gold
And bow my head
Keep my heart slow

‘Cause I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you



I manage to pull through the entire song….but then he goes….”Mamma..again!” “The song is over Kabir…” “No Mamma…sing!” One of those moments when I want to laugh so hard, I cry! But its lights off time and no acts which may get him all active again are allowed! So I just sing the chorus a couple of times more before he finally drifts off…
And I will wait for  you…
