The Boy I Once Knew
There was a boy that I once knew,
He hugged his mother as he left for school.
He was so brave, he didn't cry,
He only looked back to wave good-bye.
His mother smiled, and held back her tears,
As she says good-bye to his little boy years.
She tried to be brave, and tried not to cry,
As she returned the wave of good-bye.
His mother knows that boys grow fast,
