Where Has The Time Gone

Where has the time gone
it's slipped between the juggling of things
in and out of situations
never thought of or conceived
by me
Then suddenly one day I look around
and see you there
adrift in air
and wonder to myself

Where has the time flown

Was it lost in occupation or some financial obligation
an argument with who knows who
for who knows what and who knows why
I'm left to sigh
but when I look around and see
you standing almost to the sky
the thought I can not shake
why does my heart ache

Where has the time gone

Remembering the oohhs and ahhs
the lullabyes and captivating eyes
can't help by cry or shed a tear
but it is joy and wonder's splendor rushing
out from places far and near

Oh but dear...

my little one
Where oh where oh where oh where
and when

When did you grow up
and when did I forget to tuck you in
or wipe your tiny chin

Don't look now, Child
before it's much too late
I want to say I love you now as well
not any fairy tale
just a mother's knowing heart that swells
with a healthy understanding time has failed
to keep you small and innocent
beneath the fray and consequence
and yet we learn we all must let
you go on... too soon to be "so long"

but where has the time, the time... gone

Blessings~
