We were invincible

a force we created

through mutual determination

and love..and love


We learned together

and grew together

We laughed

and we cried



A single mom and her kids, we were strong

because we had to be, because we needed to be

because we knew we could be


Years passed in starts and stops

We marked milestones in our own way

We celebrated the good times and

endured the hard ones



And now the day has come

the one I knew someday would

when the time was right

even as I tried to wish it away


“I pointed to the sky and now you wanna fly

I am your biggest fan

I hope you know I am

But do you think you can somehow

slow down


And as you go to find that life

out there waiting for you

remember what we built



Be brave

Take chances

Stay grounded and remember

where you came from


Spread those wings

and fly
