My Prayer – Brian Mcknight

Counting the time until today
So long i’ve waited for a chance
When i could spend some time with you
Just with you

You are growing so very fast
And i know i’m always the very last, oh
To help you with a problem
To kiss your hurt if you should happen to fall down
Fall down

But when i’m gone
I need you here to carry on
My son i know you will be strong
Like a burning flame
You’re my claim
That’s why you’ve got my name
And just to show
Come what may i love you so
And there will come a day
When all that’s mine is yours
To take good care of you and yours i swear
I swear
And this is my prayer

Oh, yes
When i look at you, so hard to believe
You’re the younger version of older me
I swear
I swear
And this is my prayer
Oh lord, this is my prayer
