Mother To Son | 15-Dec-11

"Now you are a man and you must learn to stand alone. Sometimes when I see that there are troubles on your mind. I long to bear your burdens and I wish that I could find, A way to show my love for you. But what help can I be, The years have passed and you have grown beyond your need of me."

This sounds like the start of this story:

One morning, a mother went in to wake up her son.
'Wake up, son. It's time to go to school'
'But why, Mum? I don't want to go.'
'Why you don't want to go.'
'The kids hate me, and the teachers hate me!'
'Oh, that's no reason not to go to school. Come on now and get ready.'
'Why I should go to school?'

'You're the Headmaster!'
George Redgrave

I used to hold you in my arms and kiss your tears away
When you were young you ran to me but that was yesterday
Then you where a little boy and all my very own
The years have passed and you have grown beyond your need of me
Now you are a man and you must learn to stand alone
Sometimes when I see that you have troubles on your mind
I long to bear your burden and I wish that I could find
I way to show my love for you
But what help can I be
The years have passed and you have grown beyond your need of me
