Welcome to Kindergarten! Mrs. Cruz The First Day I gave you a little wink and smile As you entered my room today. For I know how hard it is to leave And know your child must stay. Day by day you've given hugs And have been a loving guide. But now, alas, the time has come To leave him at my side. Just know that as you drive away And tears down your cheeks may flow I'll love him as I would my own and help him learn and grow. For as a parent, I too know How quickly the years do pass And that one day soon it will be my turn To take my child to class. So please put your mind at ease And cry those tears no more For I will love him and take him in When you leave him at my door.
