“Watching Over You” ©
(Brianna’s Song)

Verse 1
You never got to dress me up
in ribbons bows and lace
Never got to hear me laugh
Or see my smiling face
Never got to brush my hair
Or wash between my toes
Why I had to leave so soon
Only heaven knows

Verse 2
You never got to hear me cry
Or wipe away my tears
You never got to watch me grow
Or silence all my fears
You never got to see me walk
Or fall and scrape my knee
Heaven knows that sometimes
Things aren’t meant to be

Chorus
Heaven knows I love you
Heaven knows you love me too
I know you did everything
There was for you to do
Don’t you worry mommy, daddy
We’ll be together soon
I’m looking down from heaven
And I’m watching over you
I’m waiting here in heaven
And I’m watching over you

Bridge
Never got to hear me laugh
Never got to hear me cry
Never got to say hello
Never got to say good-bye

Don’t you worry mommy, daddy
We’ll be together soon
I’m looking down from heaven
And I’m watching over you
I’m waiting here in heaven
And I’m watching over you

Written By: John Dolan (October 1999)

    This was beautiful. I plan to send to my daughter in law who had a miscarriage in 2008. She didn’t want to talk about it. I personally knew your founder Sr Jane Marie. I am still in contact with her biological sister.
