My Song For Poppy

There was one song that when I found out we were having Poppy that meant the world to me. It symbolised so much for me. The song is Cecilia And The Satellite by Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness. It’s him telling his baby girl about his life and how he’ll alway be watching over her.

This was going to be me. Then the unthinkable happened and Poppy died. I struggled to listen to music again but when I did this song took on a new meaning. Poppy was now watching over me. So I’ve adapted the lyrics to the song to fit my life and Poppy’s life.

Cecilia And The Satellite – Adapted to Poppy The Satellite 

I lock myself in this hospital room

Been waiting all night for some news on you

I’ve loved my time sitting next to you

I’ve made some dreams, and I’ve lost some too

This Crashed my life, I was 32

Your mother in the seat sitting next to me

The things I’ve learned from a broken dream

How a face can change when a heart knows fear

Through all the things my eyes have seen

The best by far is you

If I could fly

Then I would know

What life looks like from where you are

I should keep you safe

I should keep you dry

You weren’t afraid Poppy

Now you’re the satellite

And you’re in my sky

I’ve walked the streets on NYC

I’ve been across the world with your super Mum

And I’ve seen Dublin, and I’ve rocked Dubai

This has knocked  me down, I got up again

For all the places I have been

I’m no place without you

If I could fly

Then I would know

What life looks like from where you are

I should keep you safe

I should keep you dry

You weren’t afraid Poppy

Now you’re the satellite

And you’re in my sky

Poppy you’re the satellite

And you’re in my sky

For all the things my hands have held

The best by far is you and Roo

If I could fly

Then I would know

What life looks like from where you are

I should keep you safe

I should keep you dry

You weren’t afraid Poppy

Now you’re the satellite

And you’re in my sky

poppy and the satellite
