Greatest Gift

Verse 1:
Baby girl, I’m watching you sleep
Watching your little chest rise and fall as you breathe
I’m thrilled I get to be your mommy
I’m terrified I can’t give you what you need.

I love you more than you could know
I whisper it but your breathing’s still slow
I smile because you’re mine to hold
But I’m still scared I’m not good enough so…

Pre-Chorus:
…Have understanding when I don’t know what to do,
Just know I always act out of love for you.

Chorus:
You’re the greatest gift
I’ve ever been given
And I love you more than I can express.
You’re the sweetest
Thing I didn’t know I needed
I’m your mother and I feel so blessed.
When I screw up
Remember, hon,
Nothing can diminish this love.

Verse 1:
Mother dear, I’m watching you sleep
Watching the tears slide down your cheek
I’m mortified that I caused your eyes to leak
I’m terrified that I made your heart bleed.

I love you more than you could guess.
I whisper it because I’m too embarrassed.
I smile because it’s finally said.
But I’m still scared I’m not good enough yet.

Pre-Chorus:
Have understanding when I think I know what to do,
Just know I always act out of love for you.

Chorus:
You’re the greatest gift
I’ve ever been given
And I love you more than I can express.
You’re the sweetest
Thing I swore I never needed
I’m your daughter and I feel so blessed.
When I screw up
Remember, Mom,
Nothing can diminish this love.

Bridge:
We argue, we fight,
We’ve lost our minds.
How could we not remind
Ourselves of how we feel inside?
