Why is it so hard for a mother to let go of her daughter?

Going away to college for the first time is such an emotional experience not only for the student, but also for the mother.

---

18 years I worked hard for you to unconditionally love me;
To accept my flaws and to never stop caring for me;
But I guess part of being a mom is for her daughter to nitpick …
Anyway, I won’t stop trying…because I love you no matter what!
I made sure you’re happy, but sometimes you’re so distant;
Maybe it’s the way I listen,
Maybe it’s the way you communicate,
Anyway, I won’t stop trying…because I love you no matter what!
I tried to take you to places that make you smile;
I tried to buy you bits and pieces before I buy mine;
I tried to teach you but I guess I ended up nagging.
Anyway, I won’t stop trying…because I love you no matter what!
You’re going to be away from me – first time ever;
You’re going to be on your own – and I hope you have fun;
You’re going to experience different emotions – and I hope you’ll share it with me;
Anyway, I won’t stop trying…because I love you no matter what!
I can only hope, I can only pray
To break the wall that seems too upright between us.
I tried and yet failed but will try again
Anyway, I won’t stop trying…because I love you no matter what!
The little time we have left together, I need you to enjoy with us.
The past year you’ve been busy it feels like you forgot
Just like you, we also need to be wanted, even for few days.
Anyway, I won’t stop trying…because I love you no matter what!

I’m not here to make your life miserable;
I’m not here to push you away;
I’m not here to make you cry – how can I make you feel otherwise?
Anyway, I won’t stop trying…because I love you no matter what!

You are my daughter and will always be;
I’ll die trying and won’t give up until one day you’ll understand,
One day you’ll fight for me and be proud of me, think of me nicely and accept me as I am.
Anyway, I won’t stop trying…because I love you no matter what!
If it means to let you go,if it means to let you find the way,
If it means to stop being the mom I was for 18 years.
I’ll wait, hope and pray.
BUT I won’t stop trying…because I love you no matter what!
