Through your eyes it is simply incredible to see
Just how amazing and wondrous this big world can be.
Through your eyes it’s all new, it’s fun, and you grow every day;
From the things that you do to the words that you say.
You’re a big sister, my helper, and a wonderful kid;
Certainly one of the best things your dad and I ever did.
Through your eyes in this season, the holiday time of year,
The magic all comes alive with Santa and his reindeer.
You light up at their mention and you squeal, “Ho! Ho! Ho!”
There’s no end to the places with your beautiful mind you can go.
Through your eyes the world is fine and happy and bright,
And my heart swells when I watch your sparkle and light.
You watch and you try and you learn and you play,
And I burst with pride as I see you finding your way.
Through your eyes I can see it all happen again;
This journey of life on which I have been.
There is so much out there for you to see and do,
And along the way I hope you’ll be as proud of me as I already am of you.
Through your eyes I’m your mama and your guiding light.
I hope and I pray that I do this all right.
You’re my heart and my soul; you mean the world to me.
Through your eyes I hope you always see the good, my sweet Della Jolee.
