Did I ever tell you about the day you were born?
When laid in my arms was such an angelic form
With soft black hair, little fingers and toes
The cutest of ears and a kiss on your nose
A heart beating fast and deep, blue eyes
Taking my breath with your very first cries
You look up at me and the world melts away
I never knew love until this day
I've waited so long to see your face
Welcome, my son, to this place
Though it may come with pain and strife
Here you earn your eternal life
But don't worry, my baby, you are not alone
He has chosen me to give you a home
I did nothing to deserve such a blessing as this
But I'll forever cherish this precious gift
Wherever in this life you choose to go
This one thing I want you to know
Here in my heart my baby you'll be
Because I love you and you matter to me
