Tyra goes to school

There’s a elementary school just about a block away from my house, and my parents have been taking Tyra to do an afternoon walk there every day. Now she’s amaze by the yellow bus and the kids getting off from school. She’s always wear her backpack now and saying how much she really wanted to go to school. My husband keep on teasing her calling her his baby and not ready for school yet.  She’s only two, but gosh, how fast she had grown, she’ll be three in a bout 5 weeks! I have this odd melancholy feeling about this… I know its not the same feeling, but I think this is what my Mom was feeling at my wedding, I remember my Mom sing this Abba songs at my wedding for me, she dance with my husband with this songs and it bring tears to my eyes each time I hear this songs… sleeping through my fingers…

Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile
I watch her go with a surge of that well-known sadness
And I have to sit down for a while
The feeling that Im losing her forever
And without really entering her world
Im glad whenever I can share her laughter
That funny little girl

Slipping through my fingers all the time
I try to capture every minute
The feeling in it
Slipping through my fingers all the time
Do I really see whats in her mind
Each time I think Im close to knowing
She keeps on growing
Slipping through my fingers all the time

Sleep in our eyes, her and me at the breakfast table
Barely awake, I let precious time go by
Then when shes gone theres that odd melancholy feeling
And a sense of guilt I cant deny
What happened to the wonderful adventures
The places I had planned for us to go
(slipping through my fingers all the time)
Well, some of that we did but most we didnt
And why I just dont know

Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
And save it from the funny tricks of time
Slipping through my fingers…
