A Mother’s Mixed Emotions

How does a Mother let go
Of the children that she’s borne
How does she let them know
That her heart can be so torn.

To keep them by her side
Would not be just or fair
And let them have a free ride
Would mean she doesn’t care.

She knows she taught them well
And that they know right from wrong
Now…only time will tell
If they can be as strong.

But watching them go through the door
Makes her feelings sway
She must cover the tears…and more
And pray for them each day.
