This is To Mother You

*

SINEAD O’CONNOR
“This Is To Mother You”

This is to mother you
To comfort you and get you through
Through when your nights are lonely
Through when your dreams are only blue

*
This is to mother you
This is to be with you
To hold you and to kiss you too
For when you need me I will do
What your own mother didn’t do
Which is to mother you

*
All the pain that you have known
All the violence in your soul
All the ‘wrong’ things you have done
I will take from you when I come
All mistakes made in distress
All your unhappiness
I will take away with my kiss, yes
I will give you tenderness

*

For child I am so glad I’ve found you
Although my arms have always been around you
Sweet bird although you did not see me
I saw you

*

And I’m here to mother you
To comfort you and get you through
Through when your nights are lonely
Through when your dreams are only blue
This is to mother you

About Casey

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’ ~ Jack Kerouac, On The Road Again

    This song seals so nicely many recent posts. Thanks for sharing!

  2. You’re welcome. I think it’s a beautiful song.

    I’ve been thinking about the difference in mothering my daughters have gotten from me, than I have gotten from my own mother.

    I’m trying to use as many avenues as I can to re-program myself for self-nurturing and making self-care primary, so that I have more to give them.

    Beautiful.
    I hadn’t heard this in a while.
    Just close your eyes and feel nurtured.

    Thanks for the reminder 🙂
