walk away slow.

More wishes than a thousand hearts can count for you
More smiles than a merry-go-round
The sweetest ending to a bed time story told
My love follows you where you go

breeze
More laughter than a kindergarten out to play
One Sunday morning song that says it all
More Summer than the California beach can hold
My love follows you where you go

tadpoles
Future like a promise, you're city of gold
Stubborn in your bones and Jesus in your soul
Seeing you stand there staring at the unknown
I won't pretend that it's not killing me watching you walk away slow

walk away
Take forgiveness take a prayer or take the deepest breath
And take the answers in your heart
When you wake up and the world is cruel and cold
My love follows you where you go

walking
More freedom than a field of flowers in a wind
More beauty than a morning after rain
Up the steepest hill, the dark and crooked road
My love follows you where you go
Future like a promise, you're city of gold
Stubborn in your bones and Jesus in your soul
Seeing you stand there staring at the unknown
I won't pretend that it's not killing me watching you walk away slow

He's walking away slow a little bit everyday. Makes me happy he is finding his independence. And a little sad that he won't need me quite so much anymore. But my love follows him everywhere he goes. That will never change. He will always be in my heart. I love you little man.

Yep. Totally got all teary eyed. Love the photos along with it. And gosh darn-it, now I'm going to have to go out and buy Alison Krauss' latest album.

Lovely and heart felt post. Motherhood is so much about letting them walk away....it just seems to go by too fast.

Blessings.

I realized there is a misspelling in the lyrics. It should be "you're a city of gold" not your. I didn't see that till last night. Oops. Not sure how to correct without reposting and losing comments...

Oh, A, I LOVED these photos. The collages are great, right? So clean and such a great way to group photos when you just can't decide which one you love best.
Have a great weekend!
