|Brown and agile child, I watch you as you sleep ...
and think about the loves you'll have,
and the secrets that you'll keep.
Brown and agile child, for you I wish, a place to grow,
where ones color doesn't matter ...
and acceptance of each other, is all we know.
Brown and agile child, with the innocence of youth,
I lie and wonder of days ahead ... and pray for the patience
to teach you of the truth
Brown and agile child, just a baby now ...
completely without care,
I wish for you-in years to come ...
a world that will be more fair.
Janet Marie/August 1980
Happy Mothers Day to all to which this title applies.
Mothers come in so many various forms and one does not have to have given birth to qualify. Being a mother is about giving unconditional love and all the gifts that come with that kind of love.
take care, jm
