Roots and Wings

The rays of sunlight
Filter through the window
And it has me wondering
Just how much you know
about the world already
and the Man up Above
you my babe
that I’ve been dreaming of
I’ll raise you right
and protect you from harm
and I regret the day
you’ll no longer fit on my arm
you’ll experience heartbreak
and failure too
but I’ll teach you to stand again
and see in a different hue
than most other people
dead in their soul
I wish you grand adventures
and tales untold.
I’ll always love you
now and forever
and though you’ll grow up
you’ll be my baby forever
may you have roots and wings
