It rained that fateful day out on the shore
Then came the call that changed our lives forever more
Some old dream I’d never found made its way to come around
You belong here in the most important way

In no time at all we had you in our arms
Our brilliant shining light with all your charms
And in your eyes I still can see that you were born to be with me
You’re my child in the most important way

CHORUS
For so very long I’ve wanted you
From the womb inside my soul
Through the labors of love and the signs from above
You are part of me in the most important way

How sweet our life’s become now that you’re here
On Daddy’s shoulders riding high up in the air
It’s a picture that I see that was clearly meant to be
I’m your mother in the most important way

I can’t explain the way I’ve longed for you
From a heart that had to wait
For the labors of love and the signs from above
You are part of me in the most important way

Didn’t think there’d be enough of my love to go around
But I’ve learned that a true mother’s love knows no bounds
For so many nites I’ve dreamed of you

The child that’s come to me
Through the labors of love and the signs from above
You are part of me in the most important way
You are mine in the most important way
