"When will you be home?" Mom asked..

Jus' came across this lovely lyrics about "Mom - the greatest person in all our lives"
Thought would share it... this is about how she feels when we all leave home reaching out for our goals and ambitions....

Fly Away...
~~~~~~~~
"When will you be home?" she asks
as we watch the planes take off
We both know we have no clear answer to where my dreams may lead
She's watched me as i crawled and stumbled
As a child she was my world
And now to let me go, i know she bleeds
and yet she says to me

You can fly so high
Keep your gaze upon the sky
I'll be praying everystep along the way
Even though it breaks my heart to know we'll be so far apart
I love you too much to make you stay
Baby fly away

Autumn leaves fell into spring time and
Silver-painted hair
Daddy called one evening saying
"We need you. Please come back"
When I saw her laying in her bed
Fragile as a child
Pale just like an angel taking flight
I held her as I cried

You can fly so high
Keep your gaze upon the sky
I'll be prayin every step along the way
Even though it breaks my heart to know we'll be so far apart
I love you too much to make you stay
Baby fly away
ohh...
I love you too much to make you stay
Baby fly away

- Corrinne May (Album - "Fly Away")


I love you Mom... and you'll always be in my heart and mind wherever I go....

P.S: Am updating my post with the entire lyrics of this song... Got a comment that this is a song by Corrinne May, so did some search in Google and found that Corrinne May is a Singapore-based singer/song-writer. I read the lyrics of her some other songs too, they were also too good....
