The Woman I Love Lyrics

For as long as, I remember
You were there for me
A young woman, growing older
But always mum to me
My heaven lies under your feet

Now I look at you and there’s a few more, wrinkles and lines
But I still see the same beautiful smile
And it hurts to know someday the light will fade from your eyes
Cos you’re the woman I love
You’re the mother I love, my mother
You’re the woman I love

Life just passes by
a fragile butterfly
I thank Allah to have you by my side


It seemed my heart beat, a little faster
The day I held your hand
We were young then, learning together
To love and understand,
You helped me to be who I am

Now after all these years, I look at you, my beautiful bride
My whole life is right there in your eyes
And Allah allows me every day to wake up with your smile
‘cos you’re the woman I love
You’re the woman I love, my wife
You’re the woman I love

Life just passes by
a fragile butterfly
I thank Allah to have you by my side

How could I, describe the feeling
of holding you that day
From the moment, of your first breath
You stole my heart away,
There’s nothing about you I’d change

Now I will stand by you, as you spread your wings, in this great big world
But you’ll always be my little girl
And I pray Allah will keep me by your side long enough for you to learn
That you’re the woman I love
You’re the woman I love, my daughter
You’re the woman I love

Cos Life will pass us by
you are my fragile butterfly
I thank Allah to have you by my side

The greatest blessing
That I have
Are the women in my life…
