Empty Nest

Empty nest syndrome they say it is
And it has nothing to do with birds
It's a sadness that comes with losing your kids
and it's almost too awful for words

You go from being so busy and needed
to being alone and sad
You know that it comes to us one and all
But it still just feels so bad

You know that one day they must grow up
And make a life of their own
But it still isn't easy I have to say
To see them all adult and grown

You must always show a happy face
Try to be cheerful and smile
As maybe one day the grandchildren will come
And make all the heartache worthwhile
