Path Warn Down

The shore is what I have seen since I was little
     when I grew up it was so far in the distance to see.
Walking the distance when I was a child I was so brittle
     to notice the path was so warn out to me.

The little strides I took was not so bad
     it was just how it ended up when my mother had my hand.
She pointed out to the horizon to make me glad
     that I could look out and see the sand.

The look in her eyes was so beautiful 
     it was one of those moments that can be captured.
My mother showed me the path and told me to be careful
     to not worry about the pain she pictured.

The final walk up to get home was a bummer
     because it was the sign that ended my time their.
My time at the beach and the sea was the end of summer
     that is when I said, I will be back I swear.

The path might be warn more and more out
     even when time passes and when I get older.
My memories of my mother and I will last with out a doubt
     with time I get smarter and much bolder.

A Mother's Love

Carefree and sunning,
Scenery stunning,
Relaxed feeling free,
Kids play in the sea.
Then people are screaming,
Pinch, am I dreaming?
Past me everyone runs, 
I look for my sons.

They are not running,
Nature is cunning,
A tsunami wave,
God! I must run, save
My boys there, all three,
From danger, the sea
Is rising, towers,
Coming fast, powers.

Tall as a building,
There is no shielding
Them from the forceful
Sea, unremorseful,
As it races, alarming,
Must stop it harming,
Must rescue my boys
Before the wave destroys. 

I push down my fear,
For to me it's clear
That as their mother
There is no other
That can save their lives.
So as everyone strives
To run out, away,
I race through the spray.

I run and I shout
To the boys to get out,
Then as I get near
I see my worst fear
Realised, the sea
Hits them, then hits me.
I'm fighting to swim,
The outlook seems grim.

As it roars, thunders,
Taking lives, plunders
Everything it reaches,
Waves rage across beaches.
I am sucked, pulled down
So deep, nearly drown,
Then tossed on a hill,
I'm thrown, alive still.

I look all around,
Move to higher ground.
Go out of my mind,
Panic till I find,
Amid debris and death,
My boys, out of breath
But safe, all nearby,
I hold them and cry.

I just can't believe,
Think my eyes deceive 
Me, so many died, 
Even though they tried
To run out, to live,
I ran in to give
Love like no other,
The love of a mother.
