Song Lyric Sunday – Fly by Celine Dion

My daughter called me a few Saturdays ago.  She was crying and shared with me that her grandmother had passed away.  She decided to fly into town for the funeral.  I offered to go with her, but she decided to go it alone.  It took me back to when I was twenty-two and my own grandmother passed away.  I’ve written about my grandmother on my blog before.  She was a lovely soul and I will be forever grateful that she was a part of my life.

We all spent the night with her when she passed away.  She never woke up, but she was with us and we all talked and laughed and shared our favorite memories of her.  I will forever treasure that night and all the amazing memories I have of her.

I wasn’t planning to post a sad song, but this was the first one that came to mind.  We played it at my grammy’s funeral and it still tears me up when I listen to it today.

I listened to Celine Dion some in the 90’s, but she was never a favorite artist of mine.  I will say that she has a powerful voice and it lends itself well to this song and the heart-wrenching lyrics.  I hope you enjoy it without crying too much.

    I’m confused. Wouldn’t you daughter’s grandmother be your mother? Or her father’s mother?

  3. Like you, I’m not at all a fan of Celine Dion but I do admire her natural talent. I’m actually surprised I’ve not yet seen another song by her that I was fully expecting to see (I’m sure you know which one I’m referring to).

    This song is no doubt heart-wrenching. Many of the best songs are, however. Many condolences to you and yours.

  4. I too am not a Celine Dion fan but do have an affinity for her because of the Montreal connection (was are of her long before she made it famous). If memory serves me correct, this was the song she did when one of her nieces passed from cystic fibrosis (the reason why she has always done lots of charity work for the cause). Sad song, sweet story behind your pick, great choice.
