in my daughter’s eyes…

12 years ago today, my mother died. It wasn’t unexpected. She had actively been fighting cancer since I was 12 years old. However, you are never quite prepared for something like that. I definitely wasn’t ready. I still tear up at the thought of losing her. And so, today I share with you this song. While not a big country music fan myself, this song always leaves me crying – at how much I miss my mother, at the fact that my children will never know her, and at how her legacy still lives on through them.

In My Daughter’s Eyes

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 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

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 hangin’ 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
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
