The Man I Want to Be

I look back in my mind and see always something new
All I am and all I wish to be comes straight from you
Every day, in every way, I see your heart in me
The things I do — the words I say —
The man I want to be

No turning back — I must look ahead
To what the future will bring
You’ve brought me so far
But there’s so much left
And so much more to sing…

When I look in my heart I feel so much has gone
But the song you put in there for me just leads me on
Now each day I find I say “I know it can be done”
Because of love you never quit and
Win what can’t be won

Here we go ’round again
In this circle of Love that never ends

No looking back — I must move ahead
And bring the future to me
You gave me so much
That I can’t give back
But must share with my family…

What can I say but “Thank You” for this life you’ve given me

No looking back — I must move ahead
And bring the future to me
To follow your steps
And just stay on track
To be what I know I could be…
