5. Trace our tears

(Leonardo da Vinci )

 

TRACE OUR TEARS

A mother and her child

Held so gently

held to the heavens

"They will claim your name!"

 

A mother and a child

Does she even know

Of the blood shed over you

In your name, for your name

 

A mother who would wipe tears

Who would clean filth

Who would love a child

She did not ask for

 

Her son so famous

So big in the world

She forgotten

Left in the ground

 

Left her up

hold her in your heart

Like your mother

Like you were that child

 

Every beat

Of the line

Every tear that we cry

Goes back to this woman and her child

 

Exalt her, speak her name

For she is sacred

She is the flame

Of mothers love
