My Love Is Castle

Ehsan Sehgal

I became a horse
I took them on my chest
My children are my universe
For, the delight of them
I sacrifice my happiness
My love is their castle
My hands taught them
To walk
They learned to speak
With my talking
My love and devotion
It is still too strong
For every sacrifice,
But what I would say
About their love
Hands that showed them
The floor and the way
They brought those
To the strangers
And left alone
Such as duty and debt fulfilled
But still my love
Will continue until I die
No matter what they did
What they do
