you_are_my_sunshine
Aimee my only sunshine,
you make me happy
when skies are grey,
you'll never know dear
how much I love you
please don't take my sunshine away.


My mom used to sing this to me when I was really little. Still does sometimes when she thinks I'm asleep at night. Still calls me Sunshine though. I really miss her now that I've gone to college. I haven't seen her in a little over 2 months now... 2 months. We've never gone this long. And somedays, I just need one of her mommy hugs. Its odd though. She's the exact same body type as me, so when she hugs me, it's like I'm hugging myself in a respect. I miss it though. Last year I used to climb up into her lap, just cause I knew I wouldn't be able to this year if I needed to. I'm still her cuddle bug. Which sounds really odd in retrospect, mainly because I'm 18 and admitting I'm still holding my place as her baby, actively. But she's my mommy... and I miss her.

Arwyn The other night dear,
as I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
but when I woke dear
I was mistaken
and I hung my head
and I cried.

You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy
When skies are grey
You'll never know dear
How much I love you
Please don't take my
sunshine away.

I'll always love you
and make you happy
if you will only say the same
but if you leave me
and love another
you'll regret it all someday

you are my sunshine
my only sunshine
you make me happy
when skies are grey
you'll never know dear
how much i love you
please don't take my
sunshine away

You told me once dear
you really loved me
and no one could come between
but now you've left me
to love another
you have shattered all my dreams

you are my sunshine
my only sunshine
you make me happy
when skies are grey
you'll never know dear
how much i love you
please don't take
my sunshine away

In all my dreams dear
you seem to leave me
when i awake my poor heart pains
so won't you come back
and make me happy
I'll forgive dear
I'll take all the pain

you are my sunshine
my only sunshine
you make me happy
when skies are grey
you'll never know dear
how much i love you
please don't take
my sunshine away

pralines&cream This is our song.

We sing it to each other and write it to each other, and it's true. He is my sunshine.

girl_jane I've been singing and humming this since January. It got me through the winter-thinking of you, and in the summer, I will have my sunshine. Thank you for you. 030320

flowerock I was surprised when I heard the whole song. I was working at KinderCare and the preschool teacher I was an aide to sang to the kids at nap time. I always thought it was a happy song. in a way it is happy, the person singing is so hurt but full_of_forgiveness, 140725
