MY DADDY'S EYES Smiley Bates With unpredicted certainty The doctors compromised If the little girl could hope to have Her sight she'd been deprived But with the touch of God's great hand And prayer's her mommy prayed Her unforseen world opened wide The doctors heard her say Before my daddy passed away He willed his eyes to me His only soul possession left To give that I might see Though I miss my daddy so I often sit and cry But grateful I may view the world Through my daddy's eyes The shades of darkness cast away From site of daddy's eyes I feel like I have angel wings In a world of paradise To view the world through daddy's eyes It seems unreal to me For I was raised from child birth With eyes that could not see My mommy tells how happy Her and daddy use to be And how they prayed to God above That one day I might see Their prayer's may now be answered Though I wonder why The Lord would take my daddy's life To leave me daddy's eyes Before my daddy passed away He willed his eyes to me His only soul possession left To give that I might see Though I miss my daddy so I often sit and cry But grateful I may view the world Through my daddy's eyes (Transcribed by Bette Carl - September 2002)
