“Mama Bear”

She cried with joy the first time she held you   
         felt your solid reality   
         inhaled your scent     
Every cell yearned to nurture, protect, defend   

She tried to create a perfect world   
         safe within the forest   
         with cuddles at night   
         sunbeams and moonshine   
         a life of Magic   

She fought with all her strength—   
         tooth and claw—   
         to secure your future of limitless possibilities   
         battled viciously against attacks   
         as you gathered your own power   

She taught you to survive   
         forged endurance and tenacity into your spirit   
         so you can dream   
         so you can do   
         so you can be
