|Skate boards weren't dangerous enough?|
Drivers of the world, I would suggest you start to run;
Massachusetts gave a license to my eldest son.
Not that he is dangerous but, speaking as his mom,
The alarming prospects leave me feeling far from calm.
Even though he has my trust - I've seen that he can drive -
I know that most teenagers will crash... Some won't survive.
Seems a little while ago he learned to ride a bike...
Everything is moving faster than I'd really like.
Now he towers over me and asks to use the keys.
What am I supposed to do? The boy remembered "Please."
So, he's gone and here I sit - no car and just one prayer -
Please dear God look out for him and get him safely there.
(And home again... Home again. Jiggety jig.
I know he's older and gotten quite big;
Still he's my baby and, to his dismay,
Even at 6'2" I see him that way.)
