You Can't Lose Me

I'm not a giant country music fan, but. I do recall seeing/hearing this song by Faith Hill on CMT years ago and thinking, "what a beautiful song about a Mother and daughter." Now that I have a daughter of my own, the meaning has become personal. I now know the lyrics of this song is precisely how I feel about my little girl. It also describes the type of relationship I'm striving to cultivate with her, as she slowly, in time, becomes a woman.
You Can't Lose Me
A little girl, a little small for her age
A little too slow for the field day race
Momma's waiting at the finish line
And wipes the teardrops from her eyes
She says, You did just fine honey, that's okay
Sometimes life's just that way
You're gonna lose the race from time to time
But you're always gonna find"
You can't lose me
Bet your life
I am here and I will always be
Just a wish away
Wherever you go
No matter how far
My love is where you are
You won't be lost if you believe
You can't lose me
Momma use to say Girl it won't be long
Til it's time to go out on your own
Chase your dreams find your place in life
I know you'll do just fine
When that day finally came
There were things she needed to but could not say
So I whispered softly as I wiped
The tears from Momma's eyes
You can't lose me
Bet your life
I am here and I will always be
Just a wish away
Wherever I go
No matter how far
My love is where you are
You won't be lost if you believe
You can't lose me
