Reflecting with Mary #2

 2020.60.Reflecting with Mary II.main blog image

As I wrap, you up my child

In cloths of love, soft and pure white,

I pick you up, I hold you close,

And I feel your heart beat with mine.

 

I gaze on you, with so much love,

A fire in me, from God above,

That you would know, the depth my care,

As your heart beats right near mine

               

               This is me your loving mother

                I will love you into life

                I will hold you close forever

                A gift that take my breath away.

 

It’s my gift, to watch you grow

Carve out your life, in terrain unknown

Whether you feel pain, or gracious joy

Know that your heart beats with mine.

 

But don’t forget, my babe in arms,

That from my heart, you’ll not be far,

When your infant cloths are left behind,

Your heart will still beat with mine.

               

This is me your loving mother

                I will love you into life

                I will hold you close forever

                A gift that take my breath away.
