For You



I wrote this song for my son on his eighteenth birthday. Wishing him well on his life's journey.


For You

No more oatmeal kisses, no more dragon pie,

No more monster milkshakes, no more lullabies.

  In the blink of an eye, I can’t believe what I see.

  is my little baby taller, taller than me?

With a snap of a shutter, memories I cling to keep,

but our days are numbered you’re ready to take the leap.

            Just know that……

            Wherever you go, whatever you do.

            I’ll be on the sidelines cheering for you.

            Wherever you go, whatever you do.

            Oh ya gotta know that I’ll be there

            I’ll be there for you. For you.

Some lessons are hard to teach. Some children are hard to reach.

Some rules don’t make sense. I say in my defense.

Some reasons aren’t reason enough to put up with all the stuff.

Take what you can use. Do with it as you choose.

            Just know that…..Repeat chorus

No more carpools and curfews haunting me anymore.

No more critters lined up in buckets at my backdoor.
