A Mother’s Love

She bends to kiss him on the head,
scoop him into her arms
keep him safe
Mummy’s always going to be here
keeping you safe
holding you close.
The child clings to her,
hands warm and sticky,
staying close, even as he wonders
at the world – sees it in awe
but he’s safe, he knows he is,
protected in her arms forever
a bond that cannot be broken.
She walks him to the water’s edge
and they stand, watching the sun
go down over the ocean.
She will never leave him,
not by her choice.
