Ok, Sweetheart...I know what you are thinking. There goes my Mom again on one of her dramatic..."honey, I'm gonna miss you" fits...and why is she making such a big deal on the net for goodness sake. And you are probably also thinking, I'm not going away forever, just for 3 weeks and I will be back.

Yeah, fair enough. I have to admit, when you are gone there are times when I am gonna sit here and wonder..."are you ok,...what are you doing" and I can make myself *NUTS* with the answers.

But if I calm down and think about my now, 15 year old has grown to be a responsible, caring, intelligent individual. And for this reason, I am going to let you go (and get myself mentally ready for when you really do leave the nest). But make no mistake, I will miss you and look forward to when you come back AND as you mom (who is slightly internet-attached), I wanted to give you something to think about...to let you know how proud I am of you and that's what this page is all about."

~~With All My Love,

Mom







If I Could

If I Could
I'd protect you from the sadness in your eyes
give you courage in a world of compromise
yes I would
If I could
I would teach you all the things I've never learned
and I'd help you cross the bridges that I've burned
yes I would
if I could
I would try to shield your innocence from time
but the part of life I gave you isn't mine
I've watched you grow
so I could let you go
if I could
I would help you make it through the hungry years
but I know that I can never cry your tears
but I would
if I could
if I live in a time and place where you don't want to be
you don't have to walk along this road with me
my yesterday won't have to be your way
if I knew
how I'd try to change the world I brought you to
and there isn't very much that I can do
but I would
if I could
if I could
I would try to shield your innocence from time
but that part of life I gave you isn't mine
I watched you grow so I could let you go
if, if I could
I would help you make it through those hungry years
but I know that I can never cry your tears
but I would
if I could
yes I would
yes I would
if I could
