Smile A While
Listen to Smile A While here.
Here's a link to a YouTube Video
Smile a while for me, my darling.
Brighten up our home.
Precious as the first born
With a beauty all your own.
I know you are a gift from God
And I'll thank Him from my soul
Megan, daughter, lady-child
A pearl to call my own.
And I know you can't yet understand
How you hold your daddy's heart
In your tiny, little hands
And I can only guess how life would be
Without the precious love of children
What a lonely man I'd be.
So smile awhile for me, my child
lighten each day's load
Thrill the hearts and spirits of
the members of our home
The cords of love around us will
forever hold us close
Megan, daughter, I love you more
than you could ever know
(Chorus and first verse)
