~ An Hour With You~

You're precious and fragile,
Like a delicate rose.
At times I do fear,
As you and your curiosity grows.

I'd protect you forever,
If only I could.
But I know that won't do,
Either one of us any good.

You will continue on growing,
And one day you'll be gone.
In search of your own dreams,
No doubt you'll be drawn.

When off on your own,
What am I to do?
Both happy and sad tears,
I will cry for you.

This little piece of time,
Will be a part of your past.
And soon upon far away stars,
All your wishes you'll cast.

You will learn to love,
And you will learn to dance.
Remember in life not always,
Do we get a second chance

At times you will think,
That you just can't go on.
I know you'll be alright,
For your spirit is strong.

Someday too soon,
Itty bitty,
You'll be no more.
You'll disappear like a sand castle,
Washed from the shore.

When the day comes to leave,
I know how hard it will be.
A part of me will go with you,
When behind you leave me.

I hope I've taught you.
All you'll need to know.
When off on your own,
Into the world you go.

Freedom I will grant you,
To explore on your own.
I hope you'll always remember,
The way that leads back to home.

On your own you'll realize,
It isn't as easy as it seems.
And if you ever need me,
I'll always be here for you and,
Sand Castle Dreams.
