My only sunshine

The first verse is something like this:
You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy
When skies are grey
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
So please, don't take my sunshine away

My great grandpa use to sing this to me every single day. The man had such a difficult life, and only had a couple months to live when I was born. My mother had to work so even though he was sick she had to leave me with him. He ended up living another 5 years until I was in first grade. Every day I saw him, and every day he would sing that song to me and take care of me. Even though I don't remember him at all, I remember the bond we had.
I absolutely love this lullaby. It means so much to me.

You Are My Sunshine

You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy
When skies are gray
You'll never know Dear
How much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away.
The other night Dear
While I lay sleeping
I dreamt I held you in my arms
But when I woke Dear
I was mistaken
And I hung my head and I cried
1st verse: You are my sunshine

That is so sweet. I sing this to my little girl every night and she sings it back to me😊
