I’ve held gold and silver,
Diamonds and pearls in these palms.
But the most precious thing
I ever held in these arms is you.
I’ve touched silk and flowers,
Flames and waves with these palms.
But they all touched my skin,
None touched my soul like you.
You don’t know what I went through,
All those days I waited for you.
I waited to see that smile –
The most precious thing I’ll ever see.
The only thing I’ll ever need.
A song welcoming my daughter, Jane, into this world!
Welcome, Jane! You can’t understand this or make sense of this song right now. But, one day, when you hear this, I hope you smile 🙂
And she bloomed into our world one morning,
The only time, we laughed when she cried!
A feeling, fresher than the day’s dawning!
When I woke up,
I saw the light in your eyes.
In that moment,
I saw the day’s first sunrise.
Planned a trip to
Heaven later in the day.
But I already got there,
Before I started on my way.
And as you closed your eyes and turned,
Oh! My heart, it crumbled and burned.
I wish I could let it be,
But light has gone from me.
Oh! My light has gone from me.
I saw in your eyes,
Only truth, no lies –
No rolling of the dice.
And as you opened your eyes and turned,
My heart, it raced and churned.
I wish, it could, for eternity be.
The light has come back to me,
`Cause my light has come back to me.
