I Progenitor

My dear child

Beloved creation

Born inside

Love’s destination

 

By time refined

Learning and growing

Free to decide

Feeling and knowing

 

Teachers provided

You ignore lessons

Rebellion incited

Delayed progressions

 

Your wounds healed

Care never denied

Wisdom revealed

Sparked inside

 

Patient I wait

Giving the best

You will demonstrate

Mastering life’s test

 

First you crawl

Toddle then stumble

Walk fine and tall

Until aged and humble

 

I don’t need a king

I don’t want wealth

A soul that sings

In love and health

 

I am unconditional

My spirit for you

Devotion unequivocal

Pure and true

 

You my hope

I your salvation

Never alone

In tribulation

 

I know your heart

I read your mind

I never depart

Am always kind

 

Troubled innocence

My guiding hand

Darkness resist

Think and understand

 

Your life from me

Taught what I can

On the path proceed

In peace command

 

Seed from my tree

Glimmer in my eye

Follow and believe

Even after I die
