Time To Part

I have enjoyed being with you my son,
We have talked and talked, we have had our fun.
And now the time to leave has come,
And my heart feels like a setting sun.
The tears are falling from my eyes,
I leave under slightly duller skies.
And my heart ever sadly cries,
Every time we must say goodbye.

I brought you forth into this world,
Often within my arms you curled.
There were times when you did cry,
I was there to wipe your eye.
I took your sorrows all away,
I would do what i had to too make you happy.
And when you were away from me,
In my mind, a picture of you i could see.

A part of my heart is ever with you,
The Love of a mother is ever true.
I come to you whenever i can,
You are my youngest, most precious man.
I always knew the time would come,
When you must go just like the sun.
Somewhere within this mighty land,
Holding on to a younger hand.

And now the final night is here,
Let us spend it in good cheer.
Yes, tomorrow tears will run,
When i have to leave you my son.
A part of me does wish to stay,
But i know that i must go away.
But know my Love for you is ever true,
And it shall be with you my whole life through.

I have enjoyed being with you my son,
We have talked and talked we have had our fun.
And now the time to leave has come,
And my heart feels like a setting sun.
The tears are falling from my eyes,
I leave under slightly duller skies.
And my heart ever sadly cries,
Every time we must say our goodbyes.

    Good morning Michael, heartfelt. I can't imagine having to part with my kids just yet. It makes me sad knowing one day I have to be strong... PS.. thank you for reading my first poems. However I posted a poem called "Of Ink" dedicated to the will of the writing poet.. I hope you enjoy the poem when you have time... always~ LINDA

    Hi Linda, I don't have children and i can never have children so i can only imagine these feelings of sadness and pain. No one but a mother will ever feel this, but i believe, with the sadness there is a pride. The children you have raised are now off to make their mark on the world. I shall try and drop by your work later if this laptop keeps working. ...Michael

    Wonderful poem. I enjoy every moment of it. It must be sad parting from someone you love. Nevertheless you have to do what you have to do?

    Glad you enjoyed it Christine, I suppose it would be one of the saddest things, especially for a mother, but as i say, there must also be a certain ammount of pride mingled in there too. They are off too make their mark on the world, but you'll always fear for them, thanks for dropping by.....Michael.
