See the pyramids along the Nile
Watch the sun rise on a tropic isle
Just remember darling all the while
You belong to me

I'm not sure if my mother remembered the song from years past or if she latched onto it because she could, the only song not in French on this Carla Bruni recording. 

There's always music playing in my car.  This penchant of mine brought my mom such joy and this single cut became a favorite that last year we drove around together, unaware the days were numbered.  She'd sing along and usually when it ended, we'd share a glance and I'd knowingly hit the replay button. 

See the market place in old Algiers
Send me photographs and souvenirs
Just remember 'til your dream appear
You belong to me

I'll be so alone without you
Maybe you'll be lonesome too
And blue

I would wonder, did she simply like it or did the song take her aged mind to other places, other times . . . 

Patsy Cline I believe, was singing when I heard it on Pegasus the other night.  I wished for my mom to be here, to claim her bragging rights as the proud mother of a talented and creative daughter.  Pegasus Net Waves is an internet radio station, newly launched by my sister Robin and her business partner Raul.  They play fantastic music.  I love listening. 

Mom would too. 

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember, till you're home again
You belong to me

I'll be so alone without you
Maybe you'll be lonesome too
And blue
