Spread You Wings And Fly
Author: Capricorn


Now it is time to spread your wings
And do so many different things
I feel so sad to see you go
But it has to be this way ,I know

Although at times you've caused me strife
You've brought such happiness to my life
And my life, as well as yours will change
Each day seeming a little strange

I am so proud that you are mine
And hope that you will spend your time
Happily and with wisdom, until we meet again
And life will just continue until then

So fly now from this nest
Fly away, and do your best
To make your life what it can be
And sometimes, when you have time
-think of me!

------- Author's Notes -------

That was a very well written poem for your recently left son. He's lucky.

It's hard

letting them leave is hard it was just my daughter and I for 10 years when she left even the arguments I missed.Now it would be hard to have her come back and live but the doors always open. very good Cap. expressed it very well
