Alone I Stand It Seems

I cried the day we wed, standing before all to see;
My wife you became, the woman of my dreams.
On the birth of our son, holding him in my arms;
I cried there silently, scared for no harm to come.

During our second pregnancy, distance separated us-I sighed;
His calling lifted our child to the heavens, no time to say good-bye.
Our third a fighter she was, the tiniest for all to see;
As I looked down into her eyes, it's you that smiled back at me.
