Tears well up inside me
I always knew I had
holding them back carefully
not wanting to appear sad

Love is deep inside us all
but children bring it out
they grab a hold of your heart
and it makes you want to shout

Don't hurt my baby that child of mine
you wouldn't like me then
Protection is the formost thing
and I will do whatever I can

Nothing can get in my way
instincts take over my soul
and all there is inside me now
says protection is my goal

I will always be here for you
it is my life's outline
to care for you with all my might
nothing breaks the love that binds

Wrapped in soft and fluffy pink
my baby in my arms
All my life I give for you
so sweet with all your charms

This one made me misty eyed. Loved the flow, and the message touched me very personally. I was surprised the first time someone stirred my protective instinct; I must admit it is a dangerous thing to do to any mother...Write on...

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
