  • She?s with me
    I proudly tell the maitre de as we arrive
    He seems surprised
    In a clumsy moment as he looks for room, for her blessed chair
    A table stares, and their eyes show only pity
    As they try to sympathize
    Oh, how difficult that must be, look away
    Day after day, they?ll never see, the joy you bring
    Only happy at the times I know that she?s with me

    I wear it like a badge of honor at the mall
    I hear her call, the only way that she is able with a cry
    Time to go bye bye, she can?t say why
    Maybe tired, maybe hurting, god I wish that I could tell
    Do I ever make her happy for awhile
    To see her smile, makes my week,
    Though she can?t speak,
    She let?s me know she feels my love when she?s with me

    I know just what heaven looks like when I see that perfect face
    For no other mortal heart could be so fair
    I myself so weak and weary, so imperfect as a man
    How could I be the one you chose to care for our girl
    Never done a single deed to earn the right to share her light
    Though it?s such a painful road we walk each day
    Lord you have your ways, this I pray
    On the day I stand before you, she?ll stand right by my side
    When you look upon me, head hung down in shame
    I?ll feel the blame, she?ll look at me,
    And then she?ll speak, in that precious voice
    Don?t worry ?bout him my lord, 'cause you see,
    He?s with me

  • Christine Schmidt from North Platte NebraskaLove this I have a 25 year old with cerebral palsy that will never be older than 8
  • Maggie from San Dieo, CaThis song is perfect and beautiful and it found me by complete randomness. My daughter was 4 when she passed away from Spinal muscular atrophy a nuerological disease and the words and the video of this song were just so personal and touching. I was at work when I saw it and that wasnt good cause it made me cry!
  • Cheryl from Quad Cities, IlHow touching and heart breaking! The song was so beautiful and so pertinent to what's going on in your family. God bless you, your family, and your precious Haley!
