When I'm away you're with me still,
I can't detach or leave at will,
I want you close though know it's impossible,
Physical proximity at work's not permissible.
You're my little boy though I know I can't hold you,
Right now I'm your world but quite rightly you'll fly soon,
Your friends will become more important than us,
When you leave us for school I'll not make a fuss.
To love is to cherish, teach well and let go,
I want for you freedom, I want you to know,
That whether you're near or we live far apart,
You'll be on my mind and right here in my heart.
