Florida's Foreverly Shores
I Just Knew It
The day came.
I knew it would.
Three men in the making
where little boys once stood.
I look at you all, so handsome, so bright.
Remembering the little boys I kissed goodnight.
Counting the candles that you all just blew,
my heart finally accepted
what my mind already knew.
You all are grown and it just should not be.
Where are the boys that used to be?
While my heart swells with pride,
at the men you are now,
I can't help thinking
I miss the little boys, somehow.
Suddenly you flash those
little boy smiles.
My heart does flip-flops.
You've been there all the while !
Mom's are like that,
they really are.
All mushy and stuff
when you've come so far.
Robert, David and Steven
the 'little boys' of my memory.
I love now the men
who stand here before me.
Just don't ever be
so 'grown' that you ever forget,
this mom loves you with all her heart,
YOU CAN JUST BET !
