The mother sleeps, for she has fought and won a great battle this day.
Her body is exhausted and weak but her love only grows stronger.
She has earned this rest, and rest, she shall have.
The young one stirs ever so slightly in her chamber.
She has completed the longest journey of her short life.
Her body is not ready to rest, but her spirit is calm.
She is here, and here, she shall stay.
And me, I am the father and admirer this night. I watch over them with purpose. I sit silent but my love is loud. I protect them, and protect them, I shall.
