My little boy,
They’re off to school – your sister, and your three big brothers too.
But you’re still here, my little boy, ‘cause you are only three
You are my youngest, and I watch all that you say and do
Because just for a little while you’ll only be with me.
The days will come, now soon enough, you’ll go to school and wave,
“Bye mom, I’m fine.” And I’ll smile and nod and feel a little blue
I know it’s time – but time just flies, and I wonder if I gave
enough of me – my time, my love, my everything – to you.
Come sit with me, let’s read a book, let’s laugh and make a wish
Let’s play a game, let’s sing a song, together take a nap
Just wrap your arms around my neck, give me a little kiss
Let’s pause now for a moment – ‘cause you still fit on my lap.
