To my first born

Sweet babe in arms
for then
You were the centre of my world.
I gave you life
and LOVE, unmeasured,
knew no bounds.

I gave you life
and thought not, then,
of future and of pain.
Your world was mine,
and I would give you ALL
if that were asked.

So, now as then
YOUR peace and freedom
do I seek.
Your beauty is unchanged
but now I see
you as full grown

With strength and courage,
deep within your soul,
your Spirit free,
accountable and honest.
Your heart is full with
patience and compassion.

I still would give you all
for such is mother’s love
but now your ties are broken
and my heart is glad
to see you wander free
but firmly planted.
