I remember the first time I heard your heart beat And started feeling kicks from your precious little feet I knew that your life was a gift from the Lord One that was to be cherished and adored
How close I had come to that fatal mistake But I knew that your life was not mine to take Through the turmoil and questions broke God's gentle voice, "Will you entrust me with this child, with this choice?"
Sweet Lily, my girl, I love you So pure and so innocent, kept from this world Through laughter and tears I will not forget Sweet Lily, my beautiful girl
As you grew within me, my life was transformed God's Spirit renewed, washed clean, and restored Where once there was emptiness, now joy overflowed I watched in great wonder His pattern unfold.
Then came the day you were to arrive anticipation, nervousness building inside Then time seemed to cease, those words filled me with dread "I'm so sorry, she's no longer with us," they said
You entered this world so peaceful, so still so perfectly formed, so beautifully real I kissed you, cuddled you, held you so near A lifetime of moments, so short, yet so dear
My girl, through your life God worked His design He used your existence to alter mine And though it's so painful you're not here with me I'll treasure your life, mother your legacy
