Our Special Gift
The angels smiled when you were born
Because they surely knew
It would be a very special day
the day God sent us you
We held you and we loved you
And from the very start
We considered you a special gift
Loved with all our hearts
We have cherished every moment
And we wanted you to know
You have brought real joy into our lives
You’re our miracle angel
And we love you so
