a mothers love is nothing more than two hearts on the line.

I would take her dancing if I thought she'd go with me
to feel her arms wrapped round tight, each immersed in both our charms
silent in a wondrous gaze, an existentialist mist
timeless in a perfect love
where the ghost can't get in

believe me when I tell you now, I don't know what we've done right here
we've severed ties collapsed & died, each entangled in our own binds
dreaded is the night time slump, even worse the wakening
it's times like these you don't need to be around
I'm glad that we've become friends

There's a kiss upon her lips I send her every night
I wonder does she feel it as I send it on
does her blanket warm her snugly & keep her safe at night
as I lie here & hold her, softly & closer
but I'm only dreaming
I wish I didn't come apart at the seams

We talk all night this last short while, through the ether into flat screens
I want to see her face & eyes alight, each present in the sae place
to hear her voice a woman strong, & gentle at the same time
a mothers love is nothing more
than two hearts on the line.
