Taking Flight

By Leilani      
Through a purple haze
I see the magick begun
Remembering the days
When there was more than one.

Now you have taken flight
and will see me from afar
Destined for a great height
I need not be sad...I have a car!

Enjoy the journey
and wind beneath your wings,
for dear son of mine,
today your life begins.

My son is leaving home today to start a new job and new life as a fully fledged adult. Words or pictures can't really describe what I am feeling, but every parent knows. Smile And we have sunshine! How wonderful!!! Have a good day peeps Smile

WOW wasn't expecting that! Bless you Pete, what an honour! Thank you Smile

Diane yeah... Sad chance of washing coming back, thankfully, I taught him from early age to do his own! A meal on the other hand (even tho he can cook too) is a different story! Smile

Many thanks for everyone's lovely comments and votes, up and down kind of day, it's awfully quiet too. Grin
