Just call me I'll come running
When you want me near.
And I'll be there to hold you
And wipe away a tear.

No matter what may happen
Or where you choose to go.
You can always count on me
But this you already know.

Go out and discover who you are
And do what you have to do.
But just remember a mother's love
Will always be there for you.

I like this it is nicely written, reminds me of the phrase It you love something, set it free. Which is definitely what parents eventually have to do but nobody ever said it was easy.

Eloise,
Of course this one made me cry. Very beautiful, and the thought of letting go is so scary....but you are right, we as parents will always be there to wipe their tears..A mother's love is unconditional, endless...Thank you for sharing this!

Thank you septsong, and Tamera you are absolutely right about that. And as long as they know there is that unconditional love makes it a little easier for them as well.

Denise, thank you once again.  

Agony, I am so sorry for your loss.  I send you a big {{{HUG}}}  Welcome to Passions. And thank you for the comments.

So true a Mother's Heart always loves..will always be there..  
Agony, how sad I am for your loss, there is no greater loss than a mother losing a child.

I better undestand why my mother always seemed so crazy to me. Thanks Eloise.

Very beautiful, your child(ren) should be proud and blessed!!
