My Child

It is a terrible love
this fierce mother’s love I feel,
for my child.
She does not understand it,
my childless daughter,
she cannot comprehend how I feel,
or why
I would go to the ends of the earth for her,
I would fight to the death for her,
I would suffer any pain for her,
and wash her soul in healing tears.
She is my daughter.
She is my child.
That’s all.
And that’s everything.
