Mother and Son

I am an artist

And my child is my song

One that I composed

One I sing all day long;

Loud and proud for the world to hear

I raised him, nurtured him

Held him close, fought away his fears.

I am an artist

And my child is my art

One that I painted

One I could never part;

Although displayed for the world to see

I protected him, cradled him

And in my heart, he will forever belong to me.

I am a mother

And my child is my life

One who I adore

One who I comfort during sad times and strife;

For I love my child and I hold him dear

I support him, help him

And I wish him happiness in all his years.
