Poignant songs

As you know I am partial to a bit of ABBA but there is one of their songs that reduces me to tears when I hear it & that is “slipping through my fingers”
It reminds me of of what I missed out on with my Children due to long hours at work & how I cannot get that time back, since part time & retirement I manage to spend more time with Grandkids but due to Joe’s condition I spend a lot of time battling him & then cuddling him, I look at Gracie & Tilly, Tilly at four years is absolutely brilliant, she never fails to make us laugh but Gracie at nine is understanding more & realising what an arsehole her Father is, she is really bright but lacks confidence, she is a fantastic runner & easily wins all her races over any distance on sports day yet still says she cannot run, htf do I show her how good she is, we have tried everything but she cannot see it, I may be looking at pointing the finger of blame but I really believe her Dad is 100% to blame, she hates going to her Dad’s but our hands are tied.

Lots of songs have brought me to tears over the years. I couldn't listen to Angels by Robbie Williams for many, many years after it was used in the funeral of my 14 year old cousin who died of lung cancer.

I can no longer listen to David Grey after they were played at a friend’s funeral.

Cats in the cradle does it for me.. words are so very true
My son used to play it at a time in the troubled teenage years. I'm not sure it wasn't a message to me but I never pursued that idea. I wasn't capable really, didn't know how.

I'm amused now about things he call me to talk about. I think I'm first to be told.

Again, if we all knew then....

He never planned to sing it, until she had a hit with it, then he started performing it as part of a duet.
He opened his amazing show at the O2 with Purple Rain followed by Nothing Compares.

Best concerti have ever been to, a bit of a surprise as I only went as Mrs B wanted to go.
