With Every Step

With Every Step

1 min 287 1 min 287

I gaze upon the Horizon

As the sun begins to set

A herd of elephants I can see

And I begin to fret


The youngest one of the lot

Seemed to lose his step

Running to keep up

Lagging behind the rest


Predators peer at the little one

Their mouths begin to water

If he lags behind far enough

It'll make room for slaughter


A panic races through me

As I can't see what happens next

But as I covered my eyes and realized

I could feel a hard pounding in my chest


There was someone watching

Someone calculating his every step

His father moved behind him

He nuzzled against his father's leg


I breathed a sigh of relief

Understanding what had just happened

You see, he was never alone

He was never forgotten


His father was always watching

Just like my very own

Making sure I was safe

That I was never alone


Side by side they walked

With every step

The little one was grateful

His father was the best


And just like my own

I felt the sense of gratefulness

To have someone protect me

It had reached my conscious


We should love our parents

As they always love us silently

They're always watching our every step

Their duty rightfully
