As I gaze upon my daughter,
I recall days upon the alter,
Praying for her life to be sustained.
From wobbly walking and goo-goo talking,
To hide and seek games that include stalking,
Many hours spent with God to keep her safe.
Her first day when she started school,
She patiently learned every rule,
God keep her safe while she is away.
Then a sleepy bus ride home,
Iím left to wander, search and roam,
Dear God help me find her very soon.
A special Sunday night in class,
She accepts salvation now at last,
Thank you God for making her your own.
Off to highschool then she goes,
A football game with friends she knows,
Lord help her make decisions that are righteous.
Next itís time to learn to drive,
This makes her ego come alive,
God keep us safe until she is a pro.
My darling daughter has a job,
I go take pictures as I sob,
Her daily fate so heavy on my mind.
Career choices can be diverse,
She finally decides to be a nurse,
God with your help I know sheíll make it through.
As I look towards future days,
I pray her life reveals His gaze,
May she remember God is near, all the time.
Although I raised my child, I do not feel mature,
The days went by so quickly, this be sure,
Remember, only with God's help did we endure.
