A Life Change
Why do my mother's tears stream down her face,
As her little girl spreads her wings to fly?
Since those growing up days have now passed by
And a new and separate life finds its place.
My mother's job now takes a new turn
As she releases me to the Lord's care.
Trusting in His will and the love we share,
I distance myself in order to learn.
My faith soon blossoms and my views expand
And my mother's tears turn to joyful smiles,
Realizing that I have taken my stand
To live a life for God through all my trials
Of my own accord and holding His hand,
Not giving in to what the world beguiles.
