Sway and draw breath
Find room to walk away
Turn back, drawn in
Hold on
Sway and hold my breath
Cannot seem to withdraw
From your look
Addicted to you
The sound of your voice
Caressing me
Swaying to your tune
Inhaling the sweetness of your touch

Will you? I Will…

Will you? I Will…

Will you cry?
Will you shout?
Will you stand up
For the child?

A child who can no longer
Cry out for themselves
From the pain they possess,
As they take flight
From this world.

Will you shed tears
For the mother whose heart shatters
As her child flees
From the pain within?

Will you feel pain?
Can you comprehend?
Will a fire burn within
Propelling you to speak up,
Shout out, stand up
For the child who has taken flight?

And what of the mother of the child,
Whose world blurs
Into disbelief and bewilderment
Who has only begun to ask:


I will hold you
And show you the way
To weather whatever comes your way,
Embracing you and protecting you
From the storm that is rushing your way.

Stand tall
And remember a truth.
I will protect you
Until the time comes
For you to reach with arms open wide,
And ride what ever is thrown your way.

With an inner strength,
You will meet the challenges
Of those who strive
To grind you into the ground

Stand tall, and call out:

I am strong
In spite of all that I have faced,
And I will weather any storm
With a smile upon my face.
Do not hold me back
For I am on my destiny’s path.
I will face this.
I am strong.
And now, I will protect you.
