A Mothers Prayer

We walk together wreathed in tears

Clinging together as we pass through this vale of fears.

Gentle sweet one cling to me

I shall find us a way to be free.

 

Sleep now gentle baby sleep I swear your gentle soul I will keep.

Through all the troubles we shall meet I will keep

You safe from harm and swaddle you warm inside your sheet.

It is lucky I can’t see

What is in store for you and me.

 

For maybe we will escape unscathed

On our journey from the cradle to the grave.

I will do all I can to guide you through this maze

Of hard times and long sad days.

 

I will give my all for you

I am the only one who will say that, and mean it true.

So for now for all I can do is feed, and hold and love you.

 

As you grow I’ll do all I can to help you grow into a good man.

So my baby here in my arms I pray that I can keep you safe from harm.

All the bad things in this life,

The gun, the drug and the knife.

 

I can only show you the right way,

I shall just have to trust you, as in all you will have the last say.

We walk together wreathed in tears

Clinging together as we pass through this vale of fears.

Gentle sweet one cling to me I shall find us a way to be free.
