Grown

Sleep easy

my pride and joy,

I sometimes forget

that you are just a boy.

The weight you carry

on your shoulders

is something I wish

I could get hold of.

To carry it for you

for a while

so you might find it

fun to be alive.

Instead of worrying

about the smallest thing

and wondering what trouble

tomorrow might bring.

Just remember

that you are never alone

for I will still be with you

when you are grown.
