It was a lullaby my mom made up when we were little.

Lately, I've been hearing my sister and mom sing it to Nico as they rock him to sleep.

I don't know what it is about their humming, but part of me gets all weepy when I hear it. It makes me feel so secure.

The other night, Nico had been crying endlessly for what seemed to be a veeeeeeeeery long time. My sister started to sing it to him, and honestly, I don't remember how much longer he cried after that. I fell asleep.
