The First Day
I gave you a little wink and smile
As you entered my room today.
For I know how hard it is to leave
And know your child must stay.
You've been with her/him for three years now And have been a loving guide,
But now, alas, the time has come
To leave him/her at my side.
Just know that as you drive away
And tears down your cheeks may flow
I'll love her/him as I would my own
And help him/her learn and grow.
So please put your mind at ease
And cry those tears no more
For I will love her/him and take him/her in When you leave her/him at my door.
