My Little Boy is Growing Up
Getting off the schoolbus I see him so independent and free
but letting go doesn't happen that easily
He is like an eagle soaring high
but I still want to keep him under my wing
He's such a precious thing
He's finding his way learning the message behind I think I can, I think I can
As proud as I am It brings tears to my eyes
cause one day I know He won't be my little boy
He'll be one of the guys.

Well done Steph, this does capture so well the instant passage of time that children rush through.Those childhood days go by in a flash but fortunately they will always be our little boys and girls. Also when the grandkids come along it is just as great so you have a lot to look forward to.

So beautiful are your words Stephanie as I've often tolf others don't wish their life away because they grow up overnight. My boys are 39, 38, 36, and 31 and my little girl is 23 but they will always be my children. Thank you for sharing.

Newfie Hugs, Rose

Really nice poem, I can relate so much. It's so hard to let them come out from that wing!

A sparkling bright tribute to your son. You are leaving a legacy!

Good for you!

I wrote two similar poems - one for each daughter - check out the heart poem on my website.

He is so cute and scholarly from the photo. My husband liked eagles and eagles do soar high. Keep him under your wing for now cause they grow up so fast. You can't imagine what they can accomplish even when this small though. Love him to death, I say that is what you have to do right now. When they get a certain they do not even want hugs. You know IM TOO BIG NOW MOTHER!!!

This is so true, it reminds me of the little boy we put on the bus, he is so sweet and I think the same as you do everytime we walk him to the bus stop-this one's a keeper! Blessings, Michelle

Enwrap him in love, respect and understanding while you can because the time passes faster than you think, lovely, endearing write....

Be always safe,

Deep down, Stephanie, while children do grow and mature, they'll always be their parents "little ones." Your son, while he will grow to be independent, just as you are raising him to be, will always be your little boy, in the memories you have of his childhood. You may even see a bit of that childhood and your memories in his own children's eyes one day.

This is a beautiful tribute to your son.

Enjoy them now when they are still little! :) Love them and be there for them! That's what they need in life!
