I'll Love You Forever, I'll Like You for Always
Love You Forever
Love You Forever is a beautiful book about the circle of love that I read to my children, and grandchildren. It's a touching story of a mother who goes through the many phases of life with her child.
She starts with the adorable infant, to the grown married man, and all phases in between. She mentions the terrible two's, the teen with loud music, etc...
Although some of the stages would have her pulling her hair out by day, each night she would cradle her son in her arms and sing to him as he slept:
"I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always.
As long as I'm living, my baby you'll be."
Finally the time comes that the mother calls him to say he should come see her, because she is very old and sick. When he arrives, she tries to sing the song to him but can't finish.
He goes to her and picks her up, cradles her in his arms, and sings the song to her.
That night when he returns home, he sings the same song to his new baby daughter.
It is a beautiful story, and still brings me to tears when I read it.
