Big and Wide as the Sky was written for my boys and for parents everywhere who know “the bravery each heart will need.”

Lyrics

I have put away cribs, strollers and bibs
I no longer carry you
But I carry you deep in the sweep of my heart
Now big and wide as the sky

You have grown and spread your wings
Seeking new ventures by day
While here I watch the expanse of my heart
Grow big and wide as the sky

I have put aside carpools, baseball games
I no longer accompany you
But as you go, you remain in my heart
Ever big and wide as the sky

You have grown and one day soon
You’ll fly far from me
I’ll be here with the strongest of love
Big and wide as the sky

How could we know the changes our lives would undergo?
Who could foresee the bravery each heart will need?

Someday you may put away cribs, strollers and bibs
Of a love that will carry you
And you’ll know the weight of a heart that has grown
Big and wide as the sky

Then you’ll know the weight of a heart that has grown
Big and wide as the sky
As big and as wide as the sky
