CeCe's sunshine

Putting CeCe to bed usually starts off like this:
'You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping
I dreamt I held you in my arms
When I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
So I hung my head, and I cried'

It is her favorite bedtime song, but it usually has some questions to go with it. It's a fairly regular routine, but one night recently she gave me a bit of a surprise at the end. It went something like this: 
CeCe:  why you wanna cry?
Me: because his sunshine wasn't there
CeCe: where's the sunshine?
Me:  I don't know. He had a dream he was hugging her, but when he woke up, she wasn't there. 
CeCe:  were'd she go?
Me: I don't know. 
CeCe: why you wanna cry?
Me:  his sunshine wasn't there. 
CeCe:  hmm. I've been there. You?
Me:  yeah, I've been there before too.

  1. My boys considered this a song of tragedy and wouldn't let me sing it
