Pooh Corner 6 - Submitted June 26, 2009
Having been a longtime fan of yours, I immediately went out and bought Return to Pooh Corner as soon as it came out. Little did I know how much of a profound impact it would have on my life. I gave birth to my son in November 2000, two months premature. During this difficult time of having my son in the hospital NICU, I kept thinking about your music and the great messages it has.
One day while in the car I turned on the radio and to my delight Return to Pooh Corner was playing. It was right at the part where you sang...It's hard to explain how a few precious things seem to follow throughout our lives. After all is said and done, I was watching my son sleeping there with my bear by his side... The beauty in that moment was so pure I immediately teared up and began to cry. All I could think of was my own son and when he would be coming home.
Well, after five weeks in the hospital, we were excited when on Christmas Eve the doctor said our son was well enough to go home. Now every night as my son drifts off to sleep, I lean over his crib and play Return to Pooh Corner and smile. After all is said and done, I am finally watching MY SON sleeping there with MY bear by his side. Thank you Kenny for all the beautiful music you make today and always. -Kimberly
Return To Pooh Corner is a very great and heartwarming song. Each time I hear the song I think of my little niece ... she passed away over a year ago from leukieuma, and I miss her so much. On that evening we were all gathered together at her mom's home and someone they knew was playing an acoustic gutair and sang that song. Sadly, she was gone, but I still have her living in my heart. -David
