I send a message in advance…
Be gentle with your ebb and flow
As my youngest baby will be flying the nest
His moment has arrived for full time learning
And I must let him go from my constant protection.
I am conscious of this bitter sweetness, the calm before he leaves
My heart is hurting for I know I will never reclaim these moments with him
But must wave him out into the big wide world where I know he will enjoy his journey
My protection will become part time, although my love and care are full time. I am his mother ;
ALWAYS WILL BE.
