When I hear that song now, no matter who sings it, I think of one special moment after our wedding.
Perfect timing. Our car had been covered with Vaseline and feathers, as we left for our honeymoon. My Uncle Bill handed us a large box of industrial towels to wipe off the mess, as we drove away from the church.
As I rolled up the car window, I looked at Dan and breathed a sign of relief, “Whew! I’m glad that’s over, aren’t you?”
A few miles down the road, I turned on the radio. To our surprise, we heard these lyrics at the perfect time.
Only you can make this world seem right
Only you can make the darkness bright …
(“Only You” written by Buck Ram)
Of course, I cried. Filled with the emotions of the day, this song allowed me the sweet release that I needed to relax and enjoy the ride.
Perfect lullaby. Fast forward … I found myself rocking my restless, newborn baby boy, Adam. Not knowing how to comfort him, I rocked, patted, swaddled, and cuddled to no avail. Nothing seemed to work, until I sang these words, “Only you can make this world seem right …”
It’s odd, but that song worked with every restless baby crisis that ever I’ve encountered. You might want to try it next time you need some help with that issue.
Perfect song. Most couples that I know find one perfect song that they claim as their own. Did you?
Today, I challenge you to write about your special song. Maybe that would be the best Valentine’s gift ever!
