I was there the day you were born
And I gave you special gifts to last a lifetime.
I touched you, made you smile,
Helped you grow and watched you take your First step.
I even reassured you that every
Thing would be okay when you lost your first tooth.
I saw you off on your first day of school…
And I lingered by your side the whole day.
I was there to console you every
time you cried and I held you every
time you fell and scraped your knees.
I was there every day all through the
years and I always strived to give you direction.
I helped you every step of the way
into adulthood, bringing you daily
gifts of inspiration, hope and love.
And I gave you trials so that you
could grow into the warm and
beautiful person that you are…but I
never abandoned you to them.
I’ve never for a single second, turned
My back on you when you needed
Me – even when you thought that
you didn’t need Me.
I heard you every time you spoke
and I answered every prayer though sometimes… for your best
interest, I didn’t answer them the
way you hoped I would.
I’m still with you through your joys,
your hopes, your tears, your
dreams… through the bad day, the
good days – through every day of your life.
And I will be there in the end to
give you comfort and see you safely
home where you will sit beside Me
in all the glory of heaven.
