With your first words
I helped you talk
Held your hand
While you tried to walk

I locked up the cabinets
Closed all the doors
Gated the stairs
And carpeted the floors

When you first went to school
I followed the bus
Always waiting in the wings
Was someone you could trust

I steered you to activities
And friends you knew
Trying to instill
Morals and values in you

Now you’re all grown up
Trying life on your own
Just remember I’m here
You’ll always have a home

I’m proud of you
You turned out great
Now all I can do
Is sit back and wait

Until the time should come
When you need me again
Maybe as a parent
Or just as a friend
