Do you remember when you first went to school
How you were so small and vulnerable
Every thing was so big and nothing
Were you used to at all
But you gathered your confidence and knowledge
With each passing day
And had lots of fun in learning and play
When you had a problem 
Or got hurt when you fell
you’d run And tell your mum
And she’d kiss it away
Do you remember those teenage years
And your life was full of hopes and fears
When your body was changing
From a young girl to a woman
And you played on your looks to every attractive man
Everything was so exciting as your independence began
Your first kiss was a nightmare before it arrived
And when it was planted you were walking on air
Waiting for the next one
Taking the next step if you dare 
Staying out, partying and getting drunk
Going wild without a care.
Do you remember your first love
When nothing else mattered
But to see his smile
To lay safe in his arms forever and a while
You can never forget the greatest love
You carried them for nine months
Nurturing and keeping safe
Until you pushed them out into this world 
Overwhelming and gushing
At tiny little limbs
Protecting and guiding 
as the cycle once again begins.
