I set you free on the wings of a prayer
To fly through life in His tender care,
You’re free from the nest and the ties that are bound
Free from the pressures I carry around.
If I kept you I’d only be cutting your wings,
Not offering the chance a true family brings.
The decision I’ve made has my heart torn in two,
But I know what I’m doing is the best thing for you.
The sky is so vast, the mountains so high
Take wing and remember: I love you.
