Eternal Parent


16x20 water

You are my eternal parent

This I know to be true

Because the ones you gave to me in this life

Didn’t quite know what to do


They did the best they could

With the wild hearts that led

All the hurt & pain they had

Led them astray and wounded many instead


With a grateful heart

I long to be much more

If one day you give us a child

I’ll uphold your character & hold true to what is in store


And so this life is a challenge

Like a child with wounded knee

You bandage me up so gently

And send me off with urgency to be me


My hope is with you always

I am grateful for this confidence I see

Because you are my eternal parent

As your child, I am loved & free.
