I hope one day, you'll understand.
I had to let you go.
You won't return from school today
the memories all I know.
You grew each day, alot sometimes,
you always were so tall.
The strength you have, I hope you learn
to reach instead of fall.
I know you'll ask, what came of me,
I hope we stay intact.
You are a guide to me sometimes,
of truth, and honest acts.
Your stubborness is hard to guide,
you put me through some tests.
But you show ten times the love,
your honors very set.
I'll always love you in my heart,
I hope you'll always know,
To reach your arms around yourself
each time it doesn't show.
