Mom, Dad, and Me

By Quyen Nguyen
Mom

Noble as the seashore, never ending
Never shallow.
A leaf, a love message, drifting along the current
Flower blossom in the morning frost
Shade of a tree protecting against the sun
Precious things, diamond, shiny crystal
Medicine protecting against sickness
Blanket in the cold weather
Boundless love of God


Dad
Force like Jesus
Bold and dangerous, like a tiger
Ray of light in the dark
Shining like paradise


Me
Small bird, new born, without a nest
In a dangerous wilderness
Needing the warmth of a blanket
Seashore water, make me feel relief.
Strong cruel tiger, protect my life from the danger.
