Loving Gift, The

 

You gave me a blanket to keep me from the cold

And you gave me a song I learned to sing

You showed me some beauty

Through the windows of your soul

And you showed me a world I’d never seen

 

Each giving to the other

Love and giving it away

We spent the precious time

We knew was borrowed

 

Cause you gave me the courage to live with

And you gave me tomorrow

 

You gave me a candle to light my way to bed

And you erased the shadows I’d been seeing

You brought me a pillow to rest my weary head

And you taught me a gentle way of dreaming

 

And even if you leave me I’ll be richer when you go

Just living with the loving gift you gave me

 

You gave me a blanket to keep me from the cold

And you gave me a baby.
