Music and Lyrics by Juliet Spitzer | Song

For Michal

We’re gonna send you on your way
Bags and passport in your hand
We’ll say goodbye to a young adult
While we’re kissing our 2 year-old.
This skin I washed and know so well
Soft as peaches and cream
Now is worn by one who’s grown
Pursuing her own dream.

   Go away and be strong
   On your way
   See the world and discover who you are
   Then come on home.

         We measure our years by our children
         Yesterday this was me
         How can it be …

There are places you’ll visit
Beauty you can’t imagine
Textures new and varied
To taste and behold.
But when you feel this spinning world
Become too grand
Know that we’ll be waiting here
With open hearts and hands.

       Among the things we pack for our children
       Are angels to protect them along the way
       We can only pray …

   Go away and be strong
   On your way
   See the world and discover who you are
   Then come on home.

Go in peace and return in peace. Go in peace and return in peace. Go in peace and return in peace.
