the song that makes me cry, EVERYTIME i hear it or read the lyrics to, is Sara Beth by Rascal Flatts. if you know or knew someone close with cancer, this song can really hit home if you listen closely to the words. when i was a freshman in high school my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. it hit me hard, but the day i remember the most was that november when i came home from a sleepover. there, sitting in the garbage can was a pile of her hair. i pretty much remember that day like it was yesterday.
in this particular song, the part that always gets me is the verse that goes like this:
For just this morning right there on her pillow
Was the cruelest of any surprise
Yet She cried when she gathered it all in her hands
The proof that she couldn't deny
SaraBeth closes her eyes
i'm pretty certain that not too many other songs get me the way this one does.
