Earth Angels in uniforms behead
sinister monsters, born beneath beds.
My babies, forever, I hold, with a heart laid bare;
healed scrapes and cuts on knees, still glare.
Fear and pride gnawing as toys get put away;
my young men of today were born just yesterday!
Earth Angels in uniforms; mother still straighten bends;
adults, I address, but childhood never ends.
My babies, forever, I see, looking into their eyes;
threaded together forever; love ever survives.
Thoughts bleed through me, entertaining my time;
tiny feet wild and free, now boots, patent leather shine.
Earth Angels in uniforms, transcend
malignant monsters toward their dismal end.
My babies, forever, I hear; sweet child prayers to share;
tears cannot justify this womb’s restless fare.
Joy and pain mixing; such a strange blend.
Heroes’ wounds heal at a slow pace, skinned knees, a quick mend.
Protecting my babies- as men, they protect me.
But momma refuses to quit rearing; always watching over babies’ needs.
