about

In this song, a husband is describing his newborn daughter to his wife, who has died in childbirth. This works for me, but I really don't know whether it would move anyone else.

lyrics

She has angel eyes
You know, the kind that draw you in
The deepest ocean blue
And I realize
As I look at her face and her careless grin
She gets those things from you

A year from now
A year from then
A cake of bittersweet
I promise now, I will find a way
To make this day a special day
Just like the way I know you'd want it to be

In the years ahead
There will be things she's going to need to know
I don't know what I'm going to do
I always thought we'd see her
Grow and love and someday wed
I never thought it would be without you

A year from now
A year from then
A cake of bittersweet
I don't know how, but I will find a way
To make this day
A special day
Just like the way
I know you'd want it to be

This day …
Our Special Day …
Just like we dreamed it would be
