I'll Keep You In My Prayers

When you were a baby;
I held you all so close.
I kissed your little cheeks;
I kissed your little nose.
I taught you how to sing.
I held you on the swing.
I taught you how to pray.
I taught you many things.
When you were a toddler;
As cute as you could be.
I taught you the bible;
You sang Jesus loves me.
On your first day of school;
I hugged you, oh so tight.
A tear ran down my cheek;
I prayed you'd be alright.
When it was time to sleep;
I'd lay beside you.
I'd talk about Jesus;
Until our time was through.
When you became a tween;
Sometimes I felt afraid.
I'd lay in bed at night;
I prayed and prayed and prayed.
"Lord please protect my child;
Help her make the right choice."
The Lord heard my prayers;
I would sing and rejoice.
Then there were your teen years;
You made some choices then;
That were not very wise;
But soon you turned from them.   
I never ceased to pray;  
That the Lord would shield you.
I prayed from day to day;
That He would strengthen you.
Now you are a woman;
You're living for the Lord.
You are heavens blessing;
I pray you'll touch the World.
With God's love and kindness;
With gentle hands that give.
But yet standing strong;
And willing to forgive.
Thank-you for the blessings;
Throughout these many years.
You are full of sunshine;
I'll keep you in my prayers.  

I Love You!
