For all the Mothers that have raised boys. This is a poem about letting go and letting them fly.


 

 

 

I get a pain in my heart when I think of letting go

But I know a child needs room to grow

I can't keep you this young forever

The ties,  I find,  are so hard to sever

Letting go,  can leave you vulnerable and unsure

Mistakes aren't easy to endure

Changes are often viewed as a threat

As a child,  there's no regret

I must take the steps toward letting go

For his own seeds,  he must sow.

It seems a bit early to be talking about sowing seeds. ;-) I think this poem is more for you than for your son
