I watch her breathing while she sleeps
And then a feeling buries me
I’d die to see her walk to me
To smile in disbelief
At the ground beneath her feet

She cracks a smile and shows her teeth
It’s been a year, she looks like me
I’d die to teach her how to pray
To give to God each day
To know it when I say

“You’ll never be alone
You’ll never be alone
Even when all of your innocence is gone
You’ll never be alone”

One day soon she’ll say
“Daddy, I love a boy and he loves me”
And I’ll watch her leave and then I’ll pray
And give to God that day
And hope her heart is safe

A few weeks later she’ll come home
Crying that boy had let her go
He wasn’t ready yet to be
The kind of man she needs
So I hold her close and sing, softly

“You’ll never be alone
You’ll never be alone
Even as your heart is breaking don’t lose hope
You’ll never be alone”

One day soon, she’ll walk the aisle
My little girl, my precious child
Beautiful woman, veiled and sweet
I’ll smile in disbelief
As the tears roll down my cheek
And then I’ll whisper, softly

“You’ll never be alone
You’ll never be alone
Even after God calls both your parents home
You’ll never be alone”
