I am here on the train,
Traveling home without you,
And I am sad.
Because for the past 18 years
You have been my priority, my concern, and my responsibility
Me and your Father have strived to raise you up and to give you the best that we knew to give.
I feel like I am leaving a part of me behind,
I feel sad because I will miss you.
However Son, I am so proud of you.
I knew this train ride would never be easy.
But I know that this time would come.
I pray and believe that God will watch over you and keep you,
I know that God will never leave or forsake you,
And I will be looking for you to do great things.
I know you can.
This is all part of the process,
And as I seek to understand and honor my feelings,
My love for you is so great,
And leaving you is not easy.
