I Cried

I Cried
Verse 1:
Nine months of carrying you inside of me
                Pushing for hours to set you free
                Cradling you gently inside my arms
                One hour old and you had me charmed
                Incredible joy filled me inside
                And I lay in my hospital bed        
                And I cried
Chorus: And I cried
                Swelled up with pride
                So deep in my soul that it tore me up inside
                And I cried
Verse 2:
Fast forward to your first day of school
                Your preschool years were so short – yet so full
                You pause and hug me at the front door
                I just want you to stay and hug me some more
                I felt I was breaking up all inside
And I went home to your bed
                And I cried
Verse 3:
You’re graduating from high school tonight
                Your years going to school seemed to take flight
                Your face lights up as you walk down the aisle
                You’ll be off to college in a very short while
                Pride and sadness mixed up inside
                And I went home to your bed
                And I cried
Verse 4:
                A beautiful day as wedding bells sing
                I watch as you give another a ring
                A smile on my face as you recite your vows
                As flood waters of tears threaten to spill out
                Joy and sorrow jumbled inside
                And I went home to your bed
                And I cried
Bridge:
                Gone were the days you would hold my hand
                Time slipping by like drifting sand
                Years of protecting you from all harm
                I just want to hold you inside my arms
