Take Me In Small Doses

I see the fear in your eyes
That I will not fit within
Encircled arms;
And that I will spill over
Arrangements and customs-
Slide through gaps in bonds
Like a heifer fleeing a farm;
That I will question
Even facts
Woo contention
Talk back
Not valiantly smile
when snubbed
or purr contentedly
when rubbed.

But walk through with you
I will
This life, if not this world-
Guard you against adversity,
Cherish you with a fierce motherliness.

I will bless you
If not with beds,
With great robust bushes of roses
So, take me,
But take me in small doses.
