Looking Through Stained Glass

Mother holding an empty nest as children fly away
Easy Does It!

Easy does it! How time has slipped away...
My oldest son has moved away from home
A chance to make his mark within this world
Another state now claims him as its son
Easy does it! How time has slipped away...

Easy does it! How time has slipped away...
My heart feels that it was just what? Last week?
I kissed a boo-boo and made it all well
Or, explained why a girl may act like that
Easy does it! How time has slipped away...

Easy does it! How time has slipped away...
It's not true empty nest for there's one more
When did I start to crane to see his face?
I know his time with me wanes ever fast
Easy does it! How time has slipped away...

Easy does it! How time has slipped away...
The plaques and trophies on my shelves and walls
Are marks to the seconds that have gone by
Fresh lines upon my face tell equal truths
Easy does it! How time has slipped away...

Easy does it! How time has slipped away...
Did I just not give birth unto these men?
Who winces when I call them my babies
My babies, just aren't babies anymore
Easy does it! How time has slipped away...
