I love the words to this song. You probably already know it, but maybe not. I have 3 daughters. Two I gave birth to, and one still waiting for me in China. Jessica, my oldest daughter has autism. She does not speak (often). This morning she gave me a wonderful gift. She looked me straight in the eyes and said as clear as day, " Mama, Mama"! I sat down and cried! What sweet words. It has been years since I've heard her speak them.
Artist/Band: Martina McBride In my daughter's eyes, I am a hero.
Lyrics for Song: In My Daughters Eyes
Lyrics for Album: Other Songs
I am strong an' 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.
An' when she wraps her hand around my finger,
Oh, it puts a smile in my heart.
Everything becomes a little clearer.
I realise what life is all about.
It's hangin' on when your heart has had enough;
It's givin' more when you feel like givin' up.
I've seen the light: it's in my daughter's eyes.
In my daughter's eyes, I can see the future.
A reflection of who I am,
An' what will be.
An' though she'll grow an', some day, leave:
Maybe raise a family,
When I'm gone, I hope you'll see,
How happy she made me,
For I'll be there, in my daughter's eyes.
