I Don’t Know What I’m Gonna Do When He Turns 18

I don’t know what I’m gonna do when he turns 18 and leaves home.

I don’t know what I’m gonna do when he brings home a woman and tells me he wants her to be his wife.

I don’t know what I’m gonna do when his life gets super busy, and he starts calling and visiting me less.

I don’t know what I’m gonna do when my baby boy is grown.

But, I do know what it is that I’m gonna do right now while he’s young.

I’m gonna love him.

I’m gonna listen to him.

I’m gonna support him.

I’m gonna trust him.

I’m gonna encourage him.

I’m gonna guide him.

I’m gonna be gentle with him.

I’m gonna help him know his strength.

I’m gonna fill him with faith.
