GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING
© Kira Small - Kilyrann Songs (ASCAP)

He didn't wrap it with a bow
Just tossed it at me as he was walking out the door
Surprised me with the new adventure
of trying to remember how to breathe out and breathe in
His leaving was a gift that keeps on giving

He didn't tell our friends
I had to break that news time and time again
Every letter, every call, stomach tied up in a ball
I'd feel that scab start ripping
His leaving was a gift that keeps on giving

I didn't know how strong my heart was until it held me through this hurt
He didn't give me what I wanted, but I got what I deserve

I found my courage, found my pride
Brothers and sisters stand like warriors at my side
With my feet on solid ground, I see the blessings that abound
And I feel that fog start lifting
His leaving was a gift that keeps on giving

The gift I thought held only darkness – was where I saw the light
Buried beneath the pain and anger – I found the real prize

You - you didn't wrap it with a bow
Unadorned I recognized the truest heart I've ever known
Every day I'm more amazed – how you love me with such grace
And we're only just beginning
Baby you're the gift that keeps on giving
