It began when she opened her eyes.
When tiny little fingers touched his face,
twitching her funny small nose.
His face glowed with pride.
For that love shines through her eyes.

He was the guide when she took her first steps.
He was a teacher in so many ways.
She unfolded the world from his stories.
Compassion, honesty, faith, made sense.
For that love shines through her eyes.

It was never all good times.
For such is life, with it comes heartache.
Crying in her sadness, trying to give happiness.
An unshakable bond was thus made.
For that love shines through her eyes.

He never looked for any praise.
He never complained to a soul.
He was this silent strong man.
He was the hero the world never knew.
For that love shines through her eyes.

He is old, he is weak.
You just might not see it in a glance.
For he is thankful for what he has.
He still embraces life with a fierce might.
For that love shines through her eyes.

How can I ever repay you.
For your love, for those sleepless nights.
For those joys, for laughing with me.
Today I am indebted infinitely.
For everything you have given me.
For your love shines through my eyes.
