shining future


there's a shining future i hold her in my arms
sing to her softly and keep her safe and warm
a smile from her lights the day her cry brings the night
rock her gently on my chest and help to make it right
she's had a struggle since she was born
her heart was trouble my heart was torn
i felt so helpless at times i cried
with every setback a part of me died
but to see her now leaves me full of hope
for all her troubles i know she'll cope
and so i'm with her when i'm not there
though my part has ended i'll always care
there's a shining future i hold her in my arms
bask in her beauty experience her charms
i'll always cherish the moments that we share
remember all the beauty just being there
and to see her now fills me with her dreams
all that lay ahead would be hers it seems
and so i'm with her when i'm not there
