"The Sweetest Gift" as written by Paul Denman, Stuart Matthewman, Helen Adu and Andrew Hale....
Quietly while you were asleep
The moon and I were talking
I asked that she´d always keep you protected

She promised you her light
That you so gracefully carry
You bring your light and shine like morning

And then the wind pulls the clouds across the moon
Your light fills the darkest room
And I can see the miracle
That keeps us from falling

She promised all the sweetest gifts
That only the heaven´s could bestow
You bring your light and shine like morning

And as you so gracefully give
Her light as long as you live
I´ll always remember this moment

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song. Listen to it and you can feel it. The way she sings it's like she's bringing you into her world and you can feel her love. It's almost like a prayer.
    I love it

    General CommentI went to see her in concert a couple of years ago when she was promoting 'Lovers Rock'.

    Before she sang this song, she said she wrote it for her baby daughter.

    She put on a great concert. Awesome!

    General Commentit's a really beautiful song, i loved it the first time i heard it - - so calming and you really feel the love.

    i figured it was written from the viewpoint of a mother to a child, so thanks partygirl for clearing that up! ^_^
