Over the Rainbow

We were having a relaxing Sunday afternoon. Just reading and listening to the family Spotify playlist. The beautiful Eva Cassidy’s version of Over the Rainbow came on.

I usually avoid listening to this song. The Judy Garland version meant so much to me as a child. It was my song of hope and I find myself getting upset when it plays now.

This time I thought I would see what happens. Has enough time past?

But I find the lyrics are still too sad and painful to listen to. It wasn’t long before tears were gently rolling down my face. The moment I had to sniffle my nose my wife looked to see if I was upset and she saw my tears.

Luckily she is a veteran of my reaction to this song and was straight over to offer comfort.

I don’t know what she must think.

What is it about this song? Did anyone else hold it dear to them growing up or was another song special to you?
