A Mother’s Love

broken

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.
