I'll bring you Back, I Promise

by Maple Tree   Oct 10, 2017

I'll Return to Mother Earth
toil my hands within her roots,
remind you what it means to be
a child of nature.

My soul shall adorn you
with a daisy chain around your heart,
for you are golden,
my child of the moon.

Your spirit shall fly from darkness
away from all who harm you,
thunder shall sing your name
as raindrops wash away your tears.

I'll bring you back into my loving arms
keep you safe from the demons
that haunt you,
for this is a lullaby; a happy ending.

    I'll bring you Back, I Promise" By Maple Tree 4 points

    This clearly speaks of a parents love for an estranged and perhaps lost child.

    I think it would be an easy thing to dwell upon and write about the negative aspects of such an experience but this poem does not follow that path. At least I think!

    It tells of hope, of not giving up and it shows a great deal of strength and resolve.

    I wouldn't normally quote from a poem but no this occasion I will.

    "My soul shall adorn you
    with a daisy chain around your heart,
    for you are golden,
    my child of the moon"

    Quite possibly some of the most beautiful words I have read.


    Can say this now. Most of us know the story and we pray for you both.

    Ps. I ain't god squad, but it's worth a shot x

    It is in a mother's nature to fight for our children and se will go to the extreme. Praying has helped me sadly my daughter has not changed yet. I gave her to God. I wish you all the best and lots of happiness.

    As Ben said I completely agree.
    We all pray to God about so many things at the same time, for once he can avoid ours but never a mother's prayer.
    Just keep on praying, Andrea
    We all are praying too for a happy ending.

    Take care.
