The Ribbon - Care for Caregivers
Mother's Nature
By Lynn S. Keane

We start out so small, curled up inside.
as we grow in life, we stretch and open up so wide.

We learn, choose and absorb our knowledge through many years,
but as we see ourselves get older we also see the fears.

I see you fragile, sad and closing up as you get old,
It hurts me inside to see you age , lose strength and watch you fold.

I see you as a child; lost looking for a way,
I will be there for you as we take each day.

I have to accept that one day you will be gone,
but for now, together, you and I will stay strong.
