When My Little Girl Is Smiling by The Drifters



Bringing up children is not simple. From the moment the midwife cuts the cord, a mother's task is to nurture and cherish, to shelter and protect. Even as she does so, she must teach the child to leave her, train it to let go of her hand, first to walk unaided, and then to walk away. But there is a cord that nothing can sever, the invisible bond that ties the mother to her infant, which endures when the child is a child no more.
