In my daughter's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise, and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me
I see who I want to be
In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes
Everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light
And the world is at peace
This miracle God gave to me
Gives me strength when I am weak
I find reason to believe
In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her hand around my finger
Oh, it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about
It's hanging on when your heart
Has had enough
It's giving more when you feel like giving up
I've seen the light
It's in my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes
I can see the future
A reflection of who I am
And what will be
And though she'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see
How happy she made me
For I'll be there
In my daughter's eyes

    This song is means so much to me, however it is also very hard for me to hear. I made a cd of father daughter songs for my dad, and I found "I Loved Her First" by heartland. When I played it for my mom, who was in the hospital, she started crying and then she was said "we need a song" After that I started searching for one all over the place and I found this one. I played it for her and she started crying again because she said it was so beautiful. She said that it was perfect and we decided that it would be our song. About two weeks later she passed away. I had never seen it coming and was completely devastated. My mom and I used to spend the entire day together and she was my best friend. When we had her funeral, my friend helped me put together a power point presentation full of pictures. Each category of pictures had a particular song, and for the section of pictures of me and her, we played that song. Now every time I her that song I am reduced to tears. I used to dream about how we would plan my wedding together one day, and now she isn't even going to be with me at my high school graduation. One of the greatest compliments that I cherish the most, is when people tell me that I am just like my mom. She was such an amazing woman, she was my inspiration, hero, and my role model.

    I adore this song. Mothers everywhere can relate to it because their daughters are their reflections of everything they have taught, been taught, want, and wanted.

    I love this song because it shows just how much someone can love their daughters. I don't like country music, but I will listen to Martina. She's a great songwriter and has an amazing voice.

    I hope one day, if I have a daughter, she knows I love her as much as Martina loves her little ones.

    I believe that this song is an athem for mothers, that you should be able to see yourself in you daughters eyes, and they people will see you in her when you're gone. It what every mother wants and strives for. Trust me I know. People used to tell me i look just like my mom, now they say that my daughter looks like me.

    What an amazing song, and the delivery by Martina is extraordinary. I first heard this last night on my way home from work after a 13 hour day. Emotions then flooded over me because of the love I have for my two daughters, 18 and 20; I just cried such wonderful tears of love and joy.
