Love You Forever

Paint Picture & story by Mish Nyutu


Love You Forever is a story about a mother and her son. When the son was born, his mother always rocked him back and forth and sang to him:
  I 'll love you forever
  I'll like you for always,
  As long as I'm living
  My baby you'll be.

The boy grew up and entered different stages of life.  His mother thought he was a crazy child, but she still rocked him and sang to him every night. When he was two he pulled books off the shelf, when he was a teenager he wore strange clothes. He finally grew up into a man and got a house across town.

The mother always crawled into his room, and sang to his son even when he was old. The mother grew old and his son picked her up and rocked her back and forth and sang:
  I'll love you forever,
  I'll like you for always,
  As long as am living
  my Mommy you'll be.

When the son gets married, and has his own child what do you think he will do?
