To My Sons

Good night, my sweet boys
Dream of Lego castles
Discover new playgrounds
I will lovingly watch over you
when you sleep

Know that I fight like a lioness for you,
standing up, standing tall
and remove anything toxic around us
so you don’t need to carry
my familial and ancestral burden
and we all will be free

I promise, I will take care of myself
So I can best take care of you

And if you need any comfort
if you need a smile or just the truth
always feel in your hearts
how much your mommy loves you
