I recently went to see Mama Mia with my 21 year old daughter. Such a happy film, I was singing along enjoying myself, feeling elated.
Then Meryl sang "Slipping Through My Fingers". Tears rolled down my cheeks, I could not believe how that song pulled on my heart strings. It took me back to my little girl, sitting next to me, thoughts of getting ready for school, playing with her, my little angel. I felt so emotional, in amongst all this happy jolly film.
I now have the cd and often put the songs on whilst making the dinner. When that song comes on, I feel the same old sadness again.
I guess that sadness of the time lost is always lurking around in the background, for me.
Does this song affect anyone else in this way, or am just a nut !
