THE CHILD SEEKS AN EMERALD

Oh mother,

It’s of Life

I see me in your laps again

Saying this bountiful lore

Back to you after times

I stepped into this world

As humble as you taught

And, I watched my tread

With the wisdom you gave

I went through life

Amidst bitter songs

But I always spread

The sweetness of your love

There came a time,

Difficult to bear

When I moved alone

Saw you nowhere

And then I dreamt

There was an emerald of eternal peace

In a distant land

The touch of whom

Would bring solace to the soul

Oh mother,

I seek this emerald

The intense of green

That would be for life

Uncover the hidden folds

Of suspect and disbelief

That keep it away

Shielded in illusion.

It is for once in life that

The child seeks an emerald !
