Fly high little one
it's time to go on your own
time to see the world out there
now that you have grown.
Make mistakes try out life
your bound to fall on your face
try to live a happy life
and never fall from grace.
Treat all people
as you treat yourself
respect costs nothing to you
help the unfortunate heal the sick
comfort friends who are blue.
Remember your family here at home
when times get distraught and hard
always know your parents are here
to serve you the winning card.
The nest is dismantled apron strings cut
you need to find yourself
the storms of life will blow on you
knock you from the shelf.
Fulfil your goal little one
success is waiting out there
all you need is a little love
on a wing and a prayer.
What we as parents see when our kids leave and go on their own, the way we feel as parents, the fear we have, the hope that our kids will take something away from home we taught them, its a sad time, but they cannot live under your wing forever.
How did you feel when your kids left? how do you think your parents felt?
