The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face


My Baby, julian-jacob “worrell” of family Saloom, the “First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”

Dear julian,

This is the soundtrack to the first time I saw your your adorable, handsome little teddy bear face in the hospital in January 2007.

It must be said that although the music was “before my time,” Mommy always did like the classics, the oldies, but goodies, when music still told a story.  Out on the West Coast the New Agers and trendies liked to call me an “old soul,” which I found enchanting in lyricism or poesy (sounding like a poem).

Mommy refers only to the lyrics and emotion–the feelings– behind the words, “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,” in an appropriate sense of a mother’s love for her child, but not the romantic sense in which the singer meant it in this song for her lover.  Clearly, Mommy refers only to motherly love versus romantic love. Mommy brings this up because the song just makes me remember the first time that I saw your face. 

Love always, unconditionally, no matter what,

Your Real Mummy, joni-faith of family Saloom

“This song was written by Ewan MacColl for his wife Peggy Seeger. It was popularized by Roberta Flack and became a breakout hit for the singer after it appeared in the 1971 Clint Eastward film Play Misty for Me. Though the song first appeared on Flack’s 1969 album First Take, it topped the Billboard Hot 100 and won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year three years later.” — Paulo Domiciano, Paulo Domiciano Uploaded to, October 07, 2010
