Finding Wings

We’re proud of daughters and of sons,

Proud to watch you soar and glide

Beyond your childhood plans begun

With mediocrity not tried.

 

Once we sheltered and kept you warm;

We’re proud to see your souls take flight.

Now on your own you outfly storms,

Ascend, aspire toward the Light.

 

Parental mission finds release

To know the nestlings did not cling.

We helped your way along to ease,

Glad our fledglings found your wings.
