Notes for Fairy Angel


“One day Mummy
When I am all grown up
You will be small
And you will be my baby
And I will hold you and love you”

Oh how I wish for it
To grow down as she grows up
So she can hold me and love me
I can see
Even now
What a good mother she will be

And then I see:

How much better
We would parent our children
If they were to parent us in return

And then I see:

That life is a liquid
We pour into our children
And as they fill
We empty

And then I see:

There will come a point
When she is half full
And I am half empty
When we will balance
And be
The best of friends
