Who can Describe? (Mother and Child)

Who can Describe? (Mother and Child)

20th Sept 2011

Who can describe

A mother with her child

The bond that they share

The feeling he evokes?

***

Who can describe

The utter protectiveness

That at a moment’s notice

She would kill for him?

***

Who can describe

The instinct of a mother

The only one who senses

While danger’s still afar?

***

Who can describe

A relationship that mirrors

The relationship we have

With God, our Father.

***

Who can really tell it

So you understand?

Who can describe

A mother with her child?
