Her Overwhelming Love

Her Overwhelming Love

She closes her eyes and sleeps quietly
Ringing shatters the night
In a moment her world has changed
Nothing will ever be the same
Her overwhelming love

Waiting to see her son she remembers
The moment he came into the world
His beautiful face
His loving grip
Her overwhelming love

Now he looks so peaceful
But the peace is not real
The tube breathing for him hisses
The lines into his body mar his beauty
Her overwhelming love

Days turn into weeks
She doesn’t release his hand
Every movement is a sign
No one will agree, but she knows
He is fighting.
Her overwhelming love

As he opens his eyes he is asked
Do you know who this is?
Slowly he focuses and says
My Mom.
Her overwhelming love

She fights to bring him home
He needs to know that he is loved
And he needs to find the courage to fly
She the courage to release him
Her overwhelming love

Be strong, be brave and true my son
Let my love give you strength
Let your character give you resolve
Your mother supports you with
Her overwhelming love
