The first day of school
Can be hard for Mom and Dad.
Part of you feels excited,
The other part feels sad.
For many years you've held their hand,
And have been their loving guide.
Now you know the time has come
To leave them by my side.
But it is only for a little while,
As your child will learn and grow.
And at the end of everyday,
They will share with you all they know.
So as you walk away,
Don't worry anymore.
I'll take care of all those precious gifts
When you leave them at my door.
