Mother always taught me Ďtreat gifts with special careí
But the gifts that mean most of all I forget I have to share.
God gave me five daughters to nurture and to love
Itís so easy to forget that theyíre gifts from above.
God please help me remember that they really are on loan
For me to love and cherish and I really mustnít moan
That your plan for them may be not what Iíve in mind
And that I canít control in life what they may find.
So thank you God for giving me five very special girls
Who will give my life some meaning in this often-wicked world
And help me not to worry should they seem to stray
Because I know that you will be with them day by day.
