Lets get really nostalgic now! Marguerite Rivas sipoet sipoet1@aol.com There are so many, I don't know where to begin. It's between "Smile Awhile" a WWI song that my mother sang to all of us kids before we went to bed and "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" one of the songs that my dad used to play on the piano. I guess, so I don't get maudlin, I'll say "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" because I loved the sweet melody and I can see myself with one foot perched on the piano leg standing next to my father singing it. Years later I was lucky to have two children with "eyes of blue" so I sang it to them (I still do) as their lullabye song. Years after that I fell like a ton of bricks for a redhead with the sweetest "eyes of blue" in which the "love light" is always burning -- our first anniversary is soon. So, "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" is it.
