Because You’re Mine
The moment that you came along
my heart grew mighty, fierce and strong,
and everything just fell from view.
All that I could see was you.
The clouds can blow,
the wind can call,
the snow can come,
the rain can fall…
but they’ll just have to wait in line.
Because you’re mine. Because you’re mine.
Because You’re Mine celebrates the life long bond between parent and child. Reassuring children that they belong, always, it stands as a testament to a parent’s protection and support of their child through all ages and stages.
Reviews for Because You’re Mine:
In Because You’re Mine, Nancy once again uses her incredible talent to beautifully capture all the jumbled thoughts and feelings bouncing around my heart, cradle and shape them, and lay them perfectly down in type. I foresee this becoming a favorite nighttime story.
Nancy Tillman, award-winning author of On the Night You Were Born, is back with a rhyming story about the love between a parent and child. Because You’re Mine is a parent’s declaration of love from the very beginning: “The moment that you came along / my heart grew mighty, fierce and strong / And everything just fell from view / All that I could see was you”. That fierce devotion never wanes, as Tillman also notes: “The clouds can blow, the wind can call / the snow can come, the rain can fall / but they’ll just have to wait in line”. It speaks to the protective love parents and caregivers have for their littles; children will feel secure and protected hearing their loving grownup read this to them and it’s perfect for bedtime and cuddle time reading. Ms. Tillman’s instantly recognizable artwork, images of children and grownups, frolicking across spreads of woods, fields, and enjoying flora and fauna, brings to mind carefree days and joy.
