  • A Night For Letting Go

    Tonight’s a night for letting go
    Permit the grip to slip a bit
    For saying “Yes” instead of “No”
    Although it’s tough, I will admit

    You see, tonight’s a dance at school
    My daughter’s finally old enough
    She’s so excited, it’s so cool
    There’s pizza, candy, all that stuff!

    I take her to the drop off zone
    The line is long, the music’s loud
    She looks around, so small, alone
    Then disappears into the crowd

    The hours pass and I’ve returned
    I’m waiting as it starts to rain
    The lot’s so dark, I feel concerned
    But right on time, she’s back again

    The whole way home she’s chattering
    She bought some Skittles and a toy
    A flashy, mouth-guard, light-up thing
    But never once danced with a boy

    Back home, relieved, the family
    Is whole again, the proper way
    I tuck her in, hug her to me
    The letting go’s done for today
