Bye Bye Baby

Written by: Jodie Williams

Although I knew this day would come
And I'm sure I'm not the only one
I couldn't help but feel a little sad
A kiss upon her peachy cheek and
One last squeeze of her tiny hand
To let her go so soon, I must be mad

But off she goes, no backwards glance
I never even got the chance
To tell her I will be right here, I'll wait.
Then suddenly I'm stood alone 
Nowt to do but trot on home
....or maybe I can hide at the school gate

So what now? What next? Selfishly
I wonder what's in store for me 
These hours begin to feel just like a sentence
I guess I'll have to do my time
Repent for my parental crime
Now where the hell did I stash my independence.
