reigns

Letting go of the reigns

letting go of the reigns

 

 

the day you were born i knew life would never be the same

 

and holding you i knew i would protect you from lifes game

 

you're my number 1 priority and its a job i take to heart

 

no one will ever hurt you for this world they will surely part

 

as you grew your need for me slowed but still i was always there

 

i kept my distance but was still quite near to step in cuz i care

 

and then it happened so darn fast you grew up right before my eyes

 

you went from a child so small to a grown up adult oh how time flies

 

now that your grown im no longer needed to protect you any more

 

but its integrated into my being and its hard to let go of the reigns

 

i've been there for you all your life and i know its not been in vain

 

this is how lifes supposed to be and someday you will understand

 

that when you to have a child of your own it's instinct and not planned

 

when its my time to go then and only then will i give up all that remains

 

when passing over to the other side olny then will i let go of the reigns
