The Star In My Shine
Lyrics
The Star In My Shine
By Bryan K Poirier

Too soon you?ve learned to walk
Too soon you?ve learned to talk
My babies have grown so fast
Time speeds the more that?s passed

Too soon you don?t hold my hand
Too soon you?re lost to your friends
Homework and girls and the phone
A full house that?s often alone

Chorus
You are The Star In My Shine
But I know you must leave me
And I fear for that time
I give you to God
As He gave you to me
The Star In My Shine you always will be

Too soon you?ve run out to play
Too soon the time slips away
A young man they see walking by
My child I still see in your eyes

Too soon you?ll walk out my door
Too soon you?ll not walk my floors
A moment you?ll think nothing of
But one I will hold all my life

Chorus

We tend to miss the moments, other chances down the road
We turn to find them grown away with promises still owed
So give them love and let them find the path that is their life
And trust he has a purpose, at the end He?ll make things right

Chorus Twice
The Star In My Shine you always will be
Description
Short Song Description:
Children grow up too fast. Then, we have to let them go. The kids are ready. The parents aren't. It's the realization that that time will get here more quickly then we feared possible.
Long Song Description:
Children grow up too fast. Then, we have to let them go. The kids are ready. The parents aren't. It's the realization that that time will get here more quickly then we feared possible. We, as parents, face the challenge of bringing these young people
Story Behind the Song:
After recently losing a cousin to a tragic accident at the tender age of 21, I began to think about how quickly my own boys are growing. It was inspired by Daniel, but is for any parent to their child.
