Martina McBride – In My Daughter's Eyes lyrics

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 want to 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 hanging 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 daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes
I can see the future
A reflection of who I am
And what will be
And 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

    By tasteofhoney my son was brutily murdered a few years ago. And it was very difficult for me and my two girls. We have gotten very close since then. As adult women we stenthen one another, but I still learn from them, and many times they tell me they are strong because of me, but they keep me going. I played this song to them, and tried to sing it a little and they cried. One has it as her ring tone to know when I am calling her. I plan to suprise her, and sing it at her wedding in april next year if I practice enough.
