A MOTHER’S PROMISE- Yaakov Shwekey- Composed By Yitzi Waldner & Yaakov Shwekey, Lyrics By Shevi Nahum & Dassi Kurland- Musica

Dreams of perfection dance around in my mind
A miracle of life so beautifully designed
As I hear your first cries, my heart fills with love
You’re placed in my arms, a gift from above.

Then come the words that forever change my world
Something’s not right with your sweet little girl.
I hold you even tighter, as old dreams just seem to fade away
I know I will love you, protect, and keep you safe.
“We will be alright” I tell you with a soft kiss…
Hmmm…

CHORUS:
I promise I’ll be your eyes when you cannot see
I promise to be your voice when you cannot speak
I promise I’ll be your legs when you can’t bear the weight
I promise to be your heart when the pain gets too great.

Deep in the night, when I watch your eyes close
The mother in my heart is desperate to know
When those big blue eyes open, is it me that you see?
Will your sweet little arms ever reach out to me?

When you hear laughter, is it just empty noise?
Do you fear your all alone in pain and joy
Will you ever know the feelings of my love that really runs so deep
dreaming of tomorrow, we softly drift asleep.
“We will be alright” I tell you with a soft kiss…
Hmmm…

CHORUS:
I promise I’ll be your eyes when you cannot see
I promise to be your voice when you cannot speak
I promise I’ll be your legs when you can’t bear the weight
I promise to be your heart when the pain gets too great.

I promise I’ll be there
through triumphs and through tears
To be the spark in the dark
I promise I promise I promise!
