A Beautiful Spirit

A clean slate
Laid before me
An awesome responsibility
Placed in my hands
Such a beautiful spirit
Gazing in my eyes

A gorgeous friendship
Just starting out
Finding the footholds
That gird our journey
Trusting our Guide
To see His ways unfold

I cherish this princess
With unguarded heart
Protecting and providing
With guarding care
To know she’s happy
Such a great reward

I know but for today
And trust we will go on
Trusting and Loving
Discovering and Caring
Finding who we are
On the long road of life

I will treasure these joys
Caring for her
Waiting for her
Looking out for her
Discovering with her
Sharing with her
