I often hear this heartbroken song at yes fm a month ago. Honestly I don't like it that time. Because of the meaning. Its like a song for a child suffering in a decease or something and then suddenly gone, but now, I really appreciate this song specially the meaning not a as a mother but as a cousin and a sister. Our "ate kim"diagnosed to have a stage iv cancer last 2011 and only last week. She's gone with her real father. Our god. We're just thankful that we have the chance to be with her for almost 2 years instead of 6 months. I just wanna know what is the story of this song?
To god be the glory. Stay safe. Everyone. God bless.

My heart is breaking everytime I hear this song, I find myself crying in the corner thinking what was happen to my baby. How can it be happen to her for the 35 weeks carrying her in my womb then, I lost her because of pregnancy complications. I said life is so unfair but I can't complain it, I know it's also my fault. I love my baby so much and she's my first child and I know she's an angel now and we will see each other someday. I love you Ellie!

My heart breaks as I listen to this song again and again and again. I now have a 3 month old little boy and this song tells me that reality is I don't hold the life of my little boy. Anytime he may leave me. And so this song tells every mom in the world that every moment we have with our child is the most precious gift we can have here on earth so let's not waste it. This song may be a sad one but it gives us a lesson. To treasure every moment, every milestone, every day, every second.
