Something Beautiful

by Danette Kettwich

I first looked upon our child
That the Lord had sent,
I looked beyond the differences
I didn't question God's intent.

She was a child given to us
Born with a handicap,
But that made no difference
To this brand new dad.

I said to her
Something beautiful you are
Something beautiful to me
Something beautiful that only
Some will choose to see.

As our child grew, each day
She had to fight to live,
I gave her all the love
A father had to give.

Through the doors of our life
Our precious child passed,
Even though just for a while
Love in our hearts will last.

Something beautiful she was
Something beautiful to me
Something beautiful that only
Some chose to even see.

I sit and reflect upon my life
Seeing through a Father's eyes,
I can't help but to bow my head
In prayer "Father, Lord" I cry.

You looked beyond my differences
You looked beyond my pain,
You took me just as I was
The moment I cried Your name.

He said to me
Something beautiful you are
Something beautiful to me
Something beautiful that only
A Father's love could see.

Something Beautiful!

Lord you are the beauty
That lives inside of me
Something beautiful that only
Some choose to even see.

Something Beautiful!
