Poem: “My Protector” by Jacinta Pascoe


The small ripples of water amaze me

How they gather

They remind me

Thoughts reminisce

How I see my reflection so young in the water

Holding hands with my sister

My protector

Just walking

Such as simple thing

I look up into her face

She looks soft but strong

I admire her

My protector

I use to ask for her advice

She has wisdom

Life experience

Me I feel small

I know she loves me

My kind caring protector

I feel the strength in her hand

As she holds my hand

I love her

Cherish her

I look back in my reflection in the water

I am me now

Many years have passed

I hold on to the memory

I never have stopped loving her

My protector
