Hourglass - Mindy Gledhill

I heard this first on Nienie Dialogues.  This perfectly describes how I am feeling.

Hourglass by Mindy Gledhill

Little boy, when you speak
I can’t help but kiss your cheeks
I love the way you grab my hands
And tell me all about your plans

Rocket high, comets fly
You and I could take a ride
And fly away to Neverland
And give our best to Peter Pan

When you reach for the stars
Don’t forget who you are
And please don’t turn around and grow up way too fast
See the sand in my grasp
From the first to the last
Every grain becomes a memory of the past
Oh, life’s an hourglass
Life’s an hourglass

Story’s read, prayer is said
Close your eyes sleepyhead
While angels linger in your dreams
And hold you in their feathered wings
Just like you, I was small
Not that long ago at all
I wish you all the happiness
That God gives freely if you ask

I can't listen because I'm at work, but I read the lyrics (and almost cried).

My baby boy went to his first boy/girl dressy dance AND got his driving permit in the same week...almost killed me, I tell you.

It goes by so fast. It sounds so cliche, but it's true. Kiss that baby for me! He is so freaking cute, I can't stand it.
