If you ask me why I’m grateful
After all that I’ve been through
I’d have to smile and tell you, love
It’s all because of you.
If you ask me why I’m laughing
Even though I work so hard
I’d turn to wink and whisper, boy
I love your playing in the yard.
If you ask me why I’m happy
Yet my prayers seem unfulfilled
I’d stop and shake my head, dear
Life with you is such a thrill.
If you ask me why I’m blessed
While chasing hard my dream
I’d wrap my arms around you, son
Singing, “There’s magic in a moonbeam.”
Again, if you ask me why I’m grateful
It’s really simple to see
My best life began
The day you came to be.
Until next time-
