You've showed me how to be gentle,
You've showed me how to be kind.
You've showed me how to give to other's,
So the Lord can bless me when it is my time.
You've showed me how to be obedient,
And learn to bite my tongue.
You've showed me how to forgive,
And forget the wrong that has been done.
You've taught me how to be patient,
And learn to wait on the Lord.
Because patience-you always say-
Is where my blessings will be stored.
But out of all these lessons,
The greatest one of them all,
Is you've showed me how to love,
Because you loved me no matter what.
You've loved me as your child,
Never giving up.
You've loved me unconditionally,
Because you've showed me God's love.
The best thing you've ever given me,
Is nothing materialistic.
It's what you put inside my heart--
It's all of your wonderful life lessons.
