A Mother’s Love


He came broken.

I thought I could heal him.


He had walls.

I thought I could climb them.


He had no hope.

I thought I could fill him.


I broke from trying.


Then I loved him.


He was still broken.

He still had walls.

He was still hopeless.


Then I knew.


Only God could heal him.

Only God could climb those walls.

Only God could give him hope.


Then I gave him to God.


And I love him.
