I’m so sorry that I grew up too soon
I wont be there for your sons and daughters
To watch their first smiles
To hold them close to my heart
And feel their tiny hands wrap around my finger

I’m so sorry that I have to be here soon
To savor the bittersweet taste of life
To hold someone else instead of you
And wait for the tide to toss me back
To the dream of not-so-far past

Where I can see you waiting for me
Wishing for the time to stand still
Trying to hold on to a season of me and you
Where there are no limits, no boundaries
Just the hand of Destiny.
