The time as come, I do believe
For my wonderful son to up and leave
Should I celebrate in some grand style?
As I'll no longer be cleaning up after you, all the while.
No more dirty clothes on the bathroom floor
No more pin ups on your bedroom door.
The food in the fridge staying just where I left it.
Will I miss it? Every bit!
I'll miss you more than words can say
It'll be strange you not being here every day.
But you must go, it's understood.
To live your life, like a young man should.
The time has come, you are moving out
But we will never be apart
Because you hold a very special place
Deep within my/our heart/s.
You’ve been around a long time
Morning, Noon and Night.
They’ll be such a hole after you leave
It will not feel right.
I’m sure that you are equipped
As you move out of home today
To cope with life’s little stresses
Each and every day.
It is so hard to let you go
to watch you make it on your own
I pinch myself because I can’t believe
How my little girl has grown
This step you’re taking can be a struggle
And there’s one thing you need to know
if at any time things go a little wrong
You always have a place to go
No matter what life throws at you
This will always be your home
A place where you are welcome
The happy home that you have known
And know this too if life gets tough
And you should need a friend
I am always here to help you
Someone who you can depend.
I believe you know how much I/we love you
But just as you’re walking out the door
Wanted you to hear it again from me/us
Just so you know for sure.
My bestest friend
Is you my daughter
Let’s not pretend
I know I have to let you go
To live your own life out
But I am so going to miss you
without a shadow of a doubt.
Since you grew out of Teenagerhood
We became so very close
More friends than mother and daughter
And I value that the most.
I know they’ll be lots of things
That we’ll still do together
Shopping trips and pamper days
and family get-togethers.
Please don’t be a stranger
I don’t want to be a pain
Just pick up the phone to say Hello
To prevent me from going insane.
