Mama hold me close

The way that as a child

You would

Help me build my dreams

Then climb the mountains with me

And let me bathe

In the reflection of your pride

Share with me my fantasies

And tell me that

You once had them too

Did any of them ever come true?

Send my troubles away

By blowing a kiss

And when I receive it

I’ll make another wish

For both of us to share

Tell me again, the fairy tale

So that all around

Is make believe

And when I get frightened

Tell me it’s just a dream

So Mama, hold me close

The way you used to do

Wrap me up in your tenderness

And shoo away my tears

Teach me your wisdom

So that I may

Confront my fears


Sharon Carter-Wray
