Song you might enjoy - for fellow moms
« on: May 15, 2014 @ 09:10 AM »
Hi everyone,

I'm a mom and a singer-songwriter, and I just wrote a song that you might relate to if your little ones are growing up.

I hope that this song is as touching to you as it's been to me. I cried my eyes out when I wrote it, and the emotion in it is very real. I have two daughters who are both teenagers. This actually happened -- the last verse -- and I wrote this song.

It's not on iTunes or anything yet, but you can download an mp3 from Soundcloud for free if you like it.
Thanks for reading and listening!  Lyrics are below.

"Im Not Ready Yet"

You drew a picture of me and you
With purple crayon so sharp and new
And I felt richer than anyone
It said I love you, from me to mom
I read you books as you lay in bed
You had your favorites, you always said

(Chorus 1)
Oh, come on
Please dont make that the last one
Read it again like the last time
Its too early for bed
Im not ready yet

(V2)
You rode the school bus and made new friends
Stacked up those Legos until they fell
You went through clothes just like water then
You thought the big kids must be age 10
In early summer, you got a bike
I let go as you held on so tight
I said

(Chorus 2)
I I guess that push was the last one
You needed me for the last time
You can do it yourself
Im not ready yet

(V3)
Now in the basement four boxes high
Near that old bike youre too big to ride
Thats where your books went and all your toys
You had to save them, we had no choice
There in some papers of things you drew
I found that picture of me and you
And thought

(Chorus 3)
Ah, you never know its the last one
You never know its the last time
Ill never forget
But Im not ready and
Ah, you never know its the last one
You never know its the last time
Good days are ahead
But Im not ready yet

That's sweet! I watched an episode of Real Housewives of  Beverly Hills the other day when two of the moms where packing/sending their daughters off to college. Even though I am years away from those moments, I was so teary eyed. Can't imagine my girls ever leaving and not needing me. Had to fast forward because thoughts of never letting the kids go to college were forming. Great line... Good days are ahead!
