I thank the Lord for chirping birds,
Then—now—a part of you.
I thank Him for the flowers bright;
We have shared them too.
I thank Him for your jauntiness
That so often has brought smiles to stress,
And for love that grows more, not less,
When I see or think of you.
I thank Him for the courageous heart
And tenacious certainty
That dared to share her gift from God
With a mother who thought she could see.
Our children can our lives so bless
When they live in and share God’s graciousness.
The new life that I now possess,
You’ve helped to bring to me.
