Little Leah Lyrics

Little Leah
Words and Music by: Don Lewis Millard

  

Verse 1

Little Leah, waking in the early morning light

When the sun comes shining through

Blue eyed beauty, hair of golden blonde and smile so bright

They don’t see the real you

Shaking deep inside from fear of what’s to be

Grandma pegged you from the start

Holding daddy’s hand and squeezing with each step

I’ll always hold you in my heart


Chorus-1

Little Leah though I don’t find time to say

There’s a hole in me when you are away

As long as I’m alive you will know its true

Little Leah I am very proud of you


Verse 2

Now a woman, sorting out the hours of daily life

What is going on inside

Nine years later, it’s time that I complete this birthday song

To have throughout your life

I’m shaking deep inside from fear of what’s to be

In those days when we’re apart

Will you hold my hand when I can’t walk myself?

Will you keep me in your heart?

 

Chorus-2

Little Leah though we’ve had some painful days

Mature beyond your years, you knew just what to say

I’m hoping all through life that you will still stay true

To those core ideals locked deep …inside of you


Bridge

And so, when you grow

I hope that you let others see inside

And though, we can’t know

I’m wishing that you have the best in life


Verse 3

My sweet Leah, always there to help one find the way

So intrigued by things she views

An avid reader, keeping me at night with Spot and Jane

In search of hidden clues

I’m shaking deep inside with fear of what's to be

Though I’ve been there from the start

Losing other's hands while traveling life's steps

Always keep them in your heart


Chorus-3

Little Leah, though I don’t find time to say

There’s a hole in me when you are away

As long as I’m alive you will know its true

My dear Leah, I will always love you.
