TELL ME MY NEWBORN, Marisa Torre.

Tell me my newborn
what is your command
your wailing wiles have won you
to my breast within my hand
the arms that do receive you
are warm with love's embrace
as is now forever shall be
our own redeeming grace

Tell me tiny tot
what is your command
to reach so far above you
and take your life's first stand
in footing and phonetics
every mystery unfolds
the hands the hearts that guide you
as you struggle to take hold

Tell me little child
what is your command
every question an adventure
as you try to understand
every limit has it's challenge
as you try to win your way
with the sandman with the sunset
with the sand box with the day

Tell me as a student
what is your command
your present does redeem you
your future's in your hands
today you walk a double step
today determines destiny
the path you pick will place you
in the realm of what will be

Tell me as an adult
what is your command
your stature firmly planted
in my heart and trembling hand
the world that does await you
leaves me here to keep your place
of reference and of refuge
when your path exceeds your pace

Let me tell you dear
this is my command
to keep us close to heart
as I release your hand
this age that does receive me
is warm with love's embrace
as was once forever shall be
our own redeeming grace

@1993 Marisa Torre
