The cats in the cradle

Jonash solo was the king of corellia and was soon to be a proud father of a prince other known as Han Solo. When he sat in the waiting room to hear news of his son's birth he sang.

My child arrived just the other day
he came into the galaxy in the usual way
but there were planes to catch and bills to pay
he learned to walk while I was away
and he was talking before I knew it and as he grew…

For Jonash's song was exactly right his baby boy was no longer a baby but a young lad with hair as brown as his father's and eyes as hazel as his mother's and before he knew it Han could walk and talk he was now four years old!

… he said "I'm gonna be like you dad you know I'm gonna be like you"
and the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
little boy blue and the man on the moon
when ya coming home dad?
I don't know when but we'll get together then son
you'll know we'll have a good time then…

While Jonash was away again on another diplomatic mission Han was training to become a Jedi like his proud father he was now six years old he was growing was yoda had foreseen it Han was slightly reckless but he learned better as a young padawan but soon four more years had past and han was now a youngling

… my son turned ten just the other day
he said "thanks for the ball dad come on let's play"
can you teach me to throw I said "not today"
I got a lot to do he said "that's ok"
and he walked away but his smile never dimmed
I said "I gonna be just like him yeah, you know I gonna be just like him"
and the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
little boy blue and man on the moon
when ya coming home son?
don't know when but we'll get together then son
you know we'll have a good time then…

Many years had passed as Jaina Solo cradled next to her son Han was going off to become a Jedi knight at the temple the next morning he would be leaving his father on another diplomatic trip to alderaan would not see his son's departure his mother cried "oh mom don't cry I'll be home before ya know it" Han said hugging his mom on last time "oh Han dear be careful" she warned her only son

… well he came home from the temple just the other day
so much like a man I just had to say
son I'm proud of you can you sit for awhile
he shook his head and said with a smile
what I'd really like dad is to borrow the falcon keys
see you later can I have them please
and the cats in the cradle and the silver spoon
little boy blue and the man on the moon
when ya coming home son?
well I don't know when but we'll get together then son
you know we'll have a good time then…

The day finally came Han's wedding day he was marrying his long time friend royal princess leia he then moved away from corellia taking the falcon with him and trying to live a normal life but now his mother and father were older

…I've long since retired, my son's moved away
I called him up just the other day
I said, "I'd like to see you if you don't mind"
He said, "I'd love to, Dad, if I can find the time
You see my new job's a hassle and kids have the flu
But it's sure nice talking to you, Dad
It's been sure nice talking to you"

And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me
He'd grown up just like me
My boy was just like me

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin' home son?
I don't know when, but we'll get together then son
You know we'll have a good time then

Now Han Solo was married and had three children with Leia they would grow up to become Jedi's like their father and mother and their grandpa but Han would always remember cat's in the cradle as a past to be a spoken memory for it was a song to remind him to cherish his kids unlike his father did him

The end!
