Mom, Dad, and Me

By Quyen Nguyen

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

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

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.
