She Opened Her Eyes

field
While a tear runs down her frail face
I can see the years flood through
She loves the man you’ve become
And the boy she sees in you

She opened her eyes and I saw light
I’ve never seen before tonight
She lifted her head and I fell back
Oh, that kind of love

Well, the years move fast and slow us down
Pain to body and soul
But the promises of God are sound
He will lead us home

While a tear runs down her frail face
I can see the years flood through
No wishes and no could-have-beens
Just the love she has for you

“Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you.  I have made you and I will carry you…” – Isaiah 46:4
