Beside You

I’ll be Mother Earth,

Nurturing your life.

I’ll be Father Time,

Watching seasons,

Your growth, go by.

I’ll be patient Death,

Waiting to clutch

Your capable hand.

I’ll be beside you,

Longing for notice.

Seeking your voice.

Until the final day,

When your eyes

Meet mine for the

First and last time.

I’m perceived familiar,

And you are all I know.
