As you walk away with his hand,
You walk away with my heart.
An angel in disguise,
A rainbow brightening my day,
I wave goodbye and he is gone
Into the wilderness that is school.
He travels with a skip in his step,
And I travel, homeward bound, with lead in mine.
I know you will take good care of him,
And his fragile childhood mind.
I hope you will make good memories with him,
Whilst he is away from me during this time.
I look forward to the day’s end,
I am eager to hear his thoughts.
I will treasure every sentence,
And hold them tight forever more.
