When I Saw You (My Daughters' Story)

Written By: Barbie Kauffman


It’s four a.m., where are you? I’m new at this you see.
As I sit and wonder I have so much doubt in me.
I’m already so busy, how will I find the time?
My feelings overflowing, and then I see you for the very first time and

When I saw you, I knew how I would do it.
When I saw you, your little hands were trembling.
You the reason that God put me here
I didn’t know before but life became so clear when I saw you
Oh, I saw you.

Fast forward now to five years old, starting school where does the time go.
For so many years you’ve been Daddy’s little girl.
Now I have to share you with this big world.
It’s afternoon I’m there to pick you up.
The school doors fling open and here they come.
At first I don’t see you and my heart skips a beat
And then I see you running toward me and

When I saw you, running to me and waiving.
When I saw you, I knew you would always be my baby.
You’re the reason that God put me here.
I didn’t know before but life became so clear.
When I saw you.
Oh, I saw you.

Your 28 now and you’ve grown so well.
You’ve found a man that will treat you so well.
I’m so nervous about giving you away, and then you turn to me with a smile and you say.
I found the one, but he won’t replace you dad.
You’ll always be the one I come to when I’m sad.
The church doors sling open, and we head down the aisle.
The groom sees you there, and he starts to cry.
He realized what was right before his eyes.

Because when he saw you, he knew he’d found an angel.
When he saw you tears ran down his face.
You’re the reason that God put him here.
He didn’t know before but now his life’s so clear.
When he saw you.
Oh, he saw you.

I’m 93 and I’ve had a good life.
I lay in the hospital fighting for life.
The nurse said you’ll be here.
I have to hang on.
To see you once more before I move on.
You came in the door and I knew I could go.
I gave you the peace you need to continue to grow.
I made through to hold you once more.
And went with the peace I would see you again.
Because when

I saw you I had the strength to let go.
When I saw you, your little hands were trembling.
You’re the reason that God put me here.
I know for sure you’ve made my life so clear.
When I saw you.
Oh, I saw you.
