Mama's Baby Girl - Poem by Janelle Morehart

Mama's Baby Girl

Mama's baby
Mama's little girl
Gonna go into the big, wide world
Daughter want's to fly free
Mother begs 'stay with me'
Sweet baby
No longer the innocent child
Little girl
Growing into a woman
Struggling, screaming, kicking and fighting
To get to the world
To find her own way
To become what she chooses to be
Little child grown into the big adult
Pulling away and further away
She can only smile so brightly at her mama
And simply say 'Im going mama, let me go. It's my time to find my place'
'Let me go mama, Let go'
Her mother can only scream and sob
Daughter can only bare so much
In the end neither of the terms are good
Daughter leaves with resent and sorrow
Mother stays with regret and loss
Dear mother, protective mother
Let her go her own way
You cannot prevent the inevitable
You cannot hide her from mistakes
Sweet daughter, go on about your way
Don't forget about the one who taught you your ways
Sweet relationship
Keep it alive
Mothers love your daughters and let them go in the end
Daughters respect your mothers and fly to where all imagination reaches
Sweet daughter, Dear Mother
Let each other go and fly
Mama's little girl is now a woman
Soaring on eager wings does she fly
Mother stays where she must
Forever waiting for her baby to come on home
Goodbye mama's baby girl
Till on the morrow do you return only to leave yet again
Sweet agony and tempting sorrow
Such is the life of a mother
Such is the story's end of a little girl
No longer the child
But in her heart
Forever in her heart
Mama's baby girl
