Unaware as I was, facing alone the strife, when destiny seeded you in me, at the crossroads of my life.
Not my womb, but my heart I choose, to nurse you like a bud of rose.
As time passed you were still unknown, until my soul inside began to moan.
I could feel our hearts beating in a rhythm, a fact that I, jus couldn’t fathom.
With time you grew in me, our souls entangled, me battling the forces upon you which were angled.
Just as I realized your presence; me, you had conquered, my senses, my life, all to you were anchored.
My sweet child you give me eternal happiness, giving me strength to put my life out of mess.
In me I have kept you safe and strong, nursed you tenderly, shielded you against the wrong.
Part of me, to you my child, I dedicate, unsure of what in future for me awaits.
In me I have moulded, caressed you dearly, my love, warmth holding on to you tightly.
My baby you mean the word to me, yet my love you fail to see.
The time is passing, soon I will have to set you free, all this while my trapped soul is crying out, just with you to be.
