My True Mother

By Felix Barbour

I rush out to embrace my mother's love

One can't fathom the love I have for her

The air blows past her as would a calm dove

I embrace, but she then pulls me further

We move to and fro almost like a dance

At first a slow pace, but then she hurries

I don't want to fight this uncommon chance

Sweep me away from world's countless worries

I bury my head to test if its wrong

No child abuse, no neck had she rung

She needs only this, no lullaby song

But maybe too much has filled up my lung

Deeper I fall, my arms spread wide open

To embrace my true mother, the ocean
