Oh my God

Children... they come and go, and come again.

Oh my God
When the last one leaves
Or prepares to leave,
Or even
Practices leaving,
The heart follows
Each step away,
Cherishes each step
As much as when
The first one left
The heart followed
Each step away.
We still cherish
Each step home.
Oh my God
Yesterday we drove
By the turn we used to take
When she needed that ride
To high school.
Oh my God
She will be home
For the weekend,
Then will practice leaving
Oh my God
When the last one leaves
When the first one leaves
The heart follows.
