Boys will be boys the saying goes,
But you are men before your time.
Never going to teen parties.
Never sleeping in a bed that’s your own.
Never eating home cooked meals.
Never time for Soccer play with pals.
Always watching your words.
Always careful with your actions.
Always smiling at strangers.
Always on stage.
It’s been fun. We know you’re all tired.
We know you love what you do.
but now, it’s time to go home, young men,
to your friends, your own beds and to your mom’s.
Never doubt the Flight Crew will be waiting for your return.
Never question we will sing your praises while you’re home.
Never believe you have yet reached your peak of glory.
Never forget the faces that smile at you.
Always know we support you.
Always remember that you are our gift and we yours.
Always think of us thinking of you.
