Yesterday morning, my man got up after I did.  (Normal here.) He grabbed me, hugged me tight, and said, "Before you get up, would you please snuggle me?"  It was so sweet.  Something hit like a bolt and a song came to me.  (I've written a dozen or so.)  I'm going to share.  But get your hankie out.  It wasn't supposed to be so sad, but it just kept running that way.  Hard to stop when that happens.  It was written in 15 min.  I play guitar (not well, but passable) and the tune even came with the song.  

(This is a little embarrassing...)

 

SNUGGLE WITH ME


I woke up this morning

The moon still rode the sky

Stretched and yawned, rubbed my eyes

A new day drawing nigh


And as I rose I felt a stir

Then heard a sleepy sigh

My love put his hand in mine

And pulled me to his side


CHORUS 1:

Snuggle with me in the morning

Kiss me when I wake up

Stay with me all thru the night

It still won't be enough


‘Cause you are all I want

You are all I need 

I am you, we are one

So snuggle here with me


In my sleep I heard a cry

A tiny voice in the night

Nightmares visited our little son

That voice was filled with fright


I rushed to him, crawled into his bed

Felt his fear go away

Stroked his hair and held him close

And all that I could say


CHORUS 2:

I'll snuggle with you in the morning

I'll kiss you when you wake up

I'll stay with you all thru the night

And if it's not enough


Just remember you're all I want

You are all I need 

I am you, we are one

So snuggle here with me


BRIDGE:

Yesterday we heard the news, it was not to be

Our little boy would not get well

It brought me to my knees


I went to him, he lay so still

So beautiful and sweet

I held him tight and through my tears

I whispered quietly


CHORUS 3:

Snuggle with God in the morning

He'll kiss you when you wake up

He'll stay with you eternally

And it will be enough


But you're still all I want

My baby you'll always be 

But you are you, you had to go

Away.... from me.


REFRAIN:

You're in my heart,  I'll always feel you

Snuggle here with me

I might've come up with a double-whammy (where you're going, "STOP!  You're killing me!).  Not sure if I'll add it in or not.  But here's the first draft of another verse (leaving out the previous refrain):

 

Today I wandered by the room

Where he used to sleep

Opened the door, tip-toed in

The silence was so deep


On the bed a teddy bear

The one he held so dear

I scooped it up and hugged it tight

Then felt my love draw near


CHORUS 4:

Snuggle with me in the morning

Kiss me when I wake up

We'll still feel him close to us

And when that's not enough


We'll remember all of the good times

And be smiling through our grief

He won't be be far, he's in our hearts

And you'll still have me.



REFRAIN:

In his arms I felt our boy

Snuggle here....with me.
