Build A Life As They Will

Putting photos in a baby book
So that you can always go back and look
Taking hand prints watching as they grow
Knowing that some day you will have to let go

They watch you, they watch you
They watch you, they watch you

Like a potter forming his mold
You are a part of the future they take hold
As they establish their own views
And pick the paths that they choose
Although your job will never be done
One day a time will come
When it is time for you to be still
For them to build a life as they will

Some day they may fall in love
And talk about the life that they dream of
As they combine values, priorities, and goals
Now you pass the torch over to exchange roles

They watch you, they watch you
They watch you, they watch you

Like a potter forming his mold
You are a part of the future they take hold
As they establish their own views
And pick the paths that they choose
Although your job will never be done
One day a time will come
When it is time for you to be still
For them to build a life as they will

You have taken the back seat
As your grown child finds their own feet
But it is not to make you feel forgotten
It is because your little one has blossomed

They watch you, they watch you
They watch you, they watch you

Like a potter forming his mold
You are a part of the future they take hold
As they establish their own views
And pick the paths that they choose
Although your job will never be done
One day a time will come
When it is time for you to be still
For them to build a life as they will
