Out Into The Big Wide World


I look down below, at those big blue eyes,
With comforting words, as he sobbed and cried,
Your a big boy now, starting school today!
Together with friends, have fun and play.
My eyes filled up, tried to hide my emotion,
As the children arrived, what a commotion!
The teacher looks nice, I calmly said,
But all he could do, was shake his head.
I waved him goodbye, I felt so bad!
My poor little boy, looked so, so sad!
After months of tears, he was well settled in,
And his usual scowl, replaced with a grin!
With new friends made, he's as happy as Larry,
Schooldays now, no longer a worry,
No more long faces, or feeling glum,
The big wide world, can be so much fun!
