Watch this video of Alex Woodard (author of For the Sender: Love Is (Not A Feeling)) and Skye Dyer (one of Dr. Wayne Dyer’s daughters) performing “this gift” for Wayne live during an I Can Do It! event. The song was written by Alex, after he was inspired by a letter that Serena Dyer (another one of Dyer’s daughters) wrote to her father.

The song starts at minute 5:20

this gift
By Alex Woodard

first steps walking
first words talking
those times i don’t recall
every stage at
every play i know
you were there for them all

and i know sometimes
people thank you
for God’s gift you showed they had
but this time
i want to thank you
for this gift of being my dad

as i got older
if dreams would smolder
you helped bring back the fire

to warm my cold night
through the firelight
my spark of God flew higher

i know sometimes
people thank you
for God’s gift you showed they had
but this time
i want to thank you
for this gift of being my dad

i know as time goes by
you will be watching
from my first steps
to my last

but they won’t be our last

because we together
walk forever
now from future into past

so i love that
people thank you
for God’s gift you showed they had
but this time
i want to thank you
i want to thank you
i love you dad
