And I was weeping, like an open wound
All bound up in sentimentality.
As you were trying to let me know
That you need to grow. It's life's necessity.
And you'll be flying at the speed of light
When the time is right you'll spread your wings and soar
And after all, you've got a lot to share.
I'll say a prayer, you'll fly. It's what those wings are for.
But for now, I'll brush your hair aside
And when you cry I'll wipe your little tears away.
And through the years as I watch you grow
May you always know that I love you so.
