A Mother Wolf to Her Cubs

The wolf pups howling deafening the night,

Their mother too tired to put up anymore of a fight.

"Listen carefully to the whispers in the air,

know deeply in your hearts I will always be there."


She spoke softer now, "always be loving and kind,

life's mysteries can be adventurous you will find.

There will be many good times and some bad,

Try always to be happy and never too sad.


You must always be good to each other forever,

please enjoy life's great endeavor.

If at anytime you are confused, unhappy, or lost,

promise me you will never give up at any cost."


The wolf pups nodded. "Look carefully to the heavens in the sky,

search carefully with your heart and truly do try,

you will find me, I will always be there,

and remember forever that I truly do care. "


The Wolf's life slipped, faded away.

Her heart stopped she could no longer stay.

The pups looked solemnly to the heaven's high,

searching then smiled, for eternally their mother was smiling down from the sky.
