MY CHILD

Dedicated to my 3 children.

i’ve loved you
long before the beginning of time
long before rhythms and rhymes
pushed waves into motion,
separating earth from the ocean

i’ve longed for you
with aching heart and sobbing body
the thoughts of you were not lost on me
even though the world kept on spinning,
i believed i’ll meet you in the land of the living

i’ve prayed for you
to open your eyes and to love me back
when i hold you close, the black
night turns light and stars appear
lighting up the darkness, now that you are near

i’ll cherish you
is a promise i’ll keep forever
you are my greatest earthly treasure
and throughout time and space,
God’s arms and my arms will always keep you safe.
