My child, you struggle,
You fight my will.
The burdens you bear are mine.
The silence you keep within your heart,
It hurts us both.
Yet still, in time,
You will learn that you are mine.
Nothing can pluck you from my hand.
My love's enough to help you stand.
And through the guilt and pain you feel,
You'll understand that my love is real.
And though you cannot see the end,
Or understand why this should be.
The time will come when you'll look back,
And in it all you will see ME.
