This maternal love

A calf swims close to his Maternal love, never leaving her sight. And she tells him he will never drift to far for her to find him again. But is soon carried away by a current too strong to resist. And now he drifts so sad and slow. He continues until he is found by new guardians and although they are kind, they can never replace the mother he has lost. He soon is of age were they can guide him no more. He then wanders into a vast and strange world he is unsure of. One that is full of such beauty ... yet one which is so very harsh. He often hears a beautiful voice not heard since the days of youth. But when he turns to look he sees only empty water, and the voice seems so distant. A day comes when he feels tired of swimming. He has given up all hope of his return to her. Then suddenly confused by what he hears, he turns to look back. Hearing songs of sorrow, and of love. he is filled with hope that he once thought was forever lost. So he follows until he sees a wonderfully familiar sight. Could it be, after all these years. Would he finally be together at last with the mother he had lost soo long ago. The calf swims closer ... closer ... closer. And as he draws nearer he sees her. But she doesn't Recognize him ... Until he calls out for her. At last she remembers, then he swims until they are reunited once more. Now they swim an ocean not alone but forever in one another's love.
