Daughter

By Peter Gringhuis and Elton Smith

I wrote this song for my daughter on her birthday. She is growing up so fast that my father heart wants her to know she can come to me always. This is also true for our Heavenly father who is always there for us. - Peter, 24 November 2012

(Verse 1)
When I look into your eyes
I see the love you have for me
And without your love
How lonesome I would be
It's the simple things you do
That seem to draw me close to you
And while I have you here
There's one thing you should know

(Chorus)
Daughter there will come a time
When your heart will fill with wonder
And a love will gently carry you away
Just know I'm always here for you
If you need someone to talk to
Yes my heart is yours
Forever and a day

(Verse 2)
If there ever comes a time
When the path is hard to follow
When you spread your wings
But cannot seem to fly
Embrace the love that you have found
Reflect the joy that God has given
And with each new day
Your life will turn around

(Repeat Chorus)
Daughter there will come a time
When your heart will fill with wonder
And a love will gently carry you away
Just know I'm always here for you
If you need someone to talk to
Yes my heart is yours
Forever and a day

This song has special meaning to me.
My only daughter went to be with the Lord on 5/30/2005.
May others never take the time they have with their children fore granted.

This is a beautiful song. I have a daughter and know how it feels like to have one. These words are so true .Now she is grown and she is my friend, but still my litle girl forever.
