Happy Mother's Day!

Adaptation of Martina McBride's "In my Daughter's Eyes" 
In my child's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
S/he was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be
In my child's eyes

In my child'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 child's eyes

And when s/he 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 child's eyes

In my child's eyes I can see the future
A reflection of who I am and what will be
Though s/he'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see how happy
s/he made me

For I'll be there
In my child's eyes
