In Our Arms

by Henry Duthler

We do what we believe is right, correct,

in the best interest of those affected

we strive to remove them from harms way

in all we do, in everything,

In our arms they are protected.

We give them the best, whatever we can

through sacrifice and compromise

we build them up so they can stand strong

against the wind, through everything

in our arms, we see them rise.

We see them struggle, as they find their way

we watch them redirect and circle round

through all our efforts, our hopes and prayers

we see them become, who they're destined to be

In our arms, safe and sound
