What I give you

Roots and wings
concrete and cabbages
Suitcases and sunbeams
paupers and kings

I give you
all your dreams
the shoulder to lean on
a way to dry your tears

Stretch your wings
precious butterfly
as you break into the light of day
Grow strong and know
you can safely rest with me

Let me watch
as you grow and escape
gravity and darkness
soar past the atmosphere
and dance among the stars
