To my daughter on Mother's Day

Darling Lindy,

On my second Mother's Day I want you to know how much I love you and what a special gift from God you are. Thank you for opening up my eyes, teaching me so many things, and showing me a brand new world as I look into your eyes and see things for the first time through your eyes.

I will always love you,

Mommy

In My Daughter's Eyes-by Martina McBride

In my daughter's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be
In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light
and the world is at peace
This miracle God gave to me gives me
strength when I am weak
I find reason to believe
In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her hand
around my finger
Oh it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about

It's hangin' on when your heart
has had enough
It's giving more when you feel like giving up
I've seen the light
It's in my daugter's eyes
In my daughter's eyes I can see the future
A reflection of who I am and what will be
Though she'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see how happy
she made me
For I'll be there
In my daughter's eyes

To my daughter,

Ditto! You have opened my eyes to many things and brought me so very much joy throughout the years. Now I am doubly blessed seeing so many new and exciting things by observing your beautiful daughter and you together.

With love,

Your Dad
