new driver

your big day is
almost here

one that makes us
melt in fear

you have waited
quite a while

for this day to come
and now you smile

it's almost here
your test is done

and in just a day or so
you will be having fun

you will soon be behind
the steering wheel

and I just don't know
how I feel

happy yes, with a little
sadness curbed

and more than just
a little unnerved

circle of life

the circle of life
keeps going round

and I often feel like
I just might drown

in the craziness of it all
swirling down, down, down,

then I know that one day
when the kids are grown

I will be wishing that I'd
spent less time with a frown

on such days and more time
in playing the happy clown

it's not so far off for me now
to see just how much I wish I'd known

and wish I'd been better at it all
and earned that starry, starry crown

all mothers wish they could procure
and wear with great renown

it's been quiet

it's been quiet
that's for sure
doing what I want
has been the allure

they'll all be home soon
I know I'll be glad
cuz when they're gone too long
I get sad

setting back
in a hole
one step forward
three steps back

never enough
always failing
cannot get up
or stay on track

when will it end
will it ever be right
will there ever be time
to receive some slack
