A Mother's Love for Her Child
You are my child,
given to me by some miracle
that I cannot comprehend
I was worthy of.
You've come and blessed my life.
You are my world.
Whatever I've known as my own
now shared willingly
and freely with you.
You've come and opened my heart.
You are my hope,
in a world that's so unforgiving;
in your eyes I see promise
of better things yet to come.
You've come and filled me with joy.
You are my happiness
personified, yet lit even brighter
and with unimaginable beauty
created in God's light.
You've come and saved my soul.
You are my love, unconditional
whether it is given or received
and have given me complete
and utter trust in your life.
You've come and given me ambition.
For all these things
You have given me,
I have become a better soul
For this I do promise you
my love forever,
and ever to become more like you.
