Mothers and fathers
got that need to look after things,
Got that certain way
of taking you under her wings.
got that certain kind of ‘protective streak',
protecting their offspring
and providing them a place to sleep.
Mothers and fathers,
sometimes doing what is wrong,
sometimes doing what’s right,
but somehow always falling
into a great parental archetype.
I suppose I’ll be a dad one day
and I wonder then if I’ll
follow the great 'archetypal way. '
