Through Abigail’s Eyes: “A Song for You”

Through Abigail's Eyes: A Song for You

CHAPTER 28 A Song For You

The first night Abigail came to live with Dad, he played some soft music on his tablet to help her relax. As Haley Reinhart sang her emotional rendition of Cant Help Falling In Love, Dad stroked Abigail’s head and sang along, changing the words a little. “Take my paw, take my whole life too. For I can’t help falling in love with you.”

It had been a stressful day for Abigail, and somehow when she heard the music, it calmed her down a bit.

From then on, late at night, Dad made a habit of playing music while he hung out with her on the floor. “Abigail, what should our song be?” he asked. He played various songs for her, but the lyrics of one song seemed to stand out from all the others — Christina Perri’s Thousand Years. Although most people think of it as a wedding song, Dad thought the words described Abigail’s life, her long wait to find her loving forever home, and how they felt about each other:

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

All along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

Abigail liked the melody. In fact, after awhile, she recognized the song, and her ears perked up whenever she heard it. Dad collected some of the photos from her life and created a music video so they could watch it.

One evening, he placed the tablet on the floor and turned it towards her. He said, “Abigail, come look! It’s you on the screen!”

Abigail hopped over to the tablet. As the music began to play, she watched it intently. Moments from her life flashed before her eyes. As Dad watched along, he realized how far they had come in such a short time. Not that long ago, she would barely let him pet her. And now, he could pet her almost any time.

Abigail thought, “I like this song, Dad. Especially the title. Thousand Ears. It must be about rabbits!” Dad just smiled. They had found THEIR song!
