Selfless

Standard

Tenderness and grace
watching over innocence
Mother swan keeps close

Eyes barely open,
the young don’t see sacrifice
Selflessly given

  1. That’s really beautiful and the picture is gorgeous! So true ‘the young’ human or animal never see sacrifice. But it certainly comes back to mind years later. Perhaps some things in life take a long time for us to truly see them. 🙂
