A brand new world
You opened your eyes for the first time
and saw my face for what it truly was-
Full of light and hope and love.
You haven't witnessed the lies and
horrible cries of the world just yet.
I'm here under the cover of night,
to protect you from everything
wrong and vile in this life.
The subtle cries and sadness you have
yet to endure.
Is everything I will shield you from,
My beautiful child, life hasn't cursed you
with a sense of overwhelming pride,
or blessed you with infinite joy.
So innocent and lively, I'll be ****** if anyone
ever takes that away from you.
My sweet child, there is nothing I wouldn't
do in this life to protect you.
The minute you came into this world, I knew
I would always love you.
