We are walking together,

my mother and I.

this time with each other,

is our treasure.


We are away today.

Our day out,

Our day to be gay,

without a doubt.


We have to cross the street,

we step on the road,

As I take her hand,

her face glowed.


I think of the time,

when I was a child,

she would hold me

to keep me safe.


Life takes a full circle,

makes all go round,

what once saved,

needs to be shielded.


I am glad today,

I am there for my mother

Hope that I will not be alone,

when life takes me further.
