I've watched you on your journey 
through laughter and through pain, 
My eyes were ever watchful 
as you've walked through sun and rain. 

I've seen you spread your wings 
with the promise of the dove, 
My heart keeps constant vigil 
only through these eyes of love. 

Through eyes that see your goodness 
through eyes that bring you praise, 
Through vision ever ready 
to guide you through your days. 

I've watched you crossing bridges 
I've seen you miss a turn, 
But always, through these eyes of love 
I knew that you would learn. 

My eyes showed disappointment 
at times along the way, 
But I've realized through these mother's eyes 
those judgments do not stay. 

If ever you should see that 
my eyes are bathed in tears, 
Don't be concerned, don't be afraid-- 
it happens through the years... 

For smiling eyes need cleansing 
to clear away debris, 
'Cause only through these eyes of love 
can mothers really see.
