An anthem to the joys and sorrows of watching our children grow up.


You’re baby’s breath, the sweetest scent
Rolls and folds of porcelin skin
Were they end and where they begin
I wish I could keep you this way forever

Babble to words, crawl to run
Moments to years, that’s how memories are spun
As wind chases leaves, you chase the sun
I wish I could keep you this way forever

No matter how I try, I fight and I fight
To hold you in sight
To keep you close and tight
To freeze you like this, this moment’s just right

Your legs grow long, your tan and strong
You’re a butterfly fluttering around and around
You talk with passion, you write your own songs
I wish I could keep you this way forever

A mothers heart knows, a child must grow
Our greatest sorrow is our great joy
A mother’s heart never changes, as her child grows old
I know I will feel this way forever
I know I can’t keep you this way forever
I know I will feel this way forever
