Untitled 7

It started slow…
my baby learned to say
things like…
Mommy, Daddy, and no

And as he grew
he learned to say
I love you

Now he’s grown
and gone away
I saw his bride
he married yesterday

Of all the things he and I
learned to say…
“Good bye” is the one in the way

Always through the years
I will shed my tears
Inside I die each time
Lord, I hate to say Good bye

And so it’s come to you and I…
