Child comforts mother
Both comfort one another
Time passes through
A backwards path into
A place where
She is there for you
And you are there for her

This child that she hath
Given life unto
This child, you
Sacrificing of her own
Freedom

As she will teach
And you will learn
To teach her too
As she taught you

To be her baby born
For it to mean so much
That she would give you
Life to touch

Between the two

Yes in this life
Discovered light
To shine so bright
A lovely power
Of self-being
Sharing
Ever
Baring
New

Together both are seeing
Together both are breathing
The essence of a truth only
Old age and youth
Build meaning
Up into

A celebration
Of creation
Mother and
Child
