There comes a time in a child's life
When we have to let them go.
We continue to care.
We are always there,
But we must allow them to grow.
As they take each faltering step
We must stand tenderly by;
And watch as they learn center
With evey twist and turn
As every new challenge they try.
Although our hearts may be trembling
As we feel for each pain they endure,
We can comfort and guide
But we must stand aside
To give them the room to mature.
So it is with all of us,
The children of Our Father above.
He wisely stands back,
Though our souls nothing lack.
They expand in the fullness of LOVE.
