Sweet Boy

My sweet boy
If I could paint the sky for you
With the fiercest love
It would be a color indescribable
A color only a mother could know

My sweet boy
With so many rifts in your gentle world
If I could only show you
Your little spirit is enough
To guide you

My sweet boy
Your heart is the size of a star
It will carry you through this galaxy
This ugly, selfish, irresistible galaxy

My sweet boy
Your laugh has kept me alive
More than you know
It echoes in my heart
Like the grandest melody

My sweet boy
You will have my heart forever
Unlock it when you need me
And I will come running
