Precious Gift

150 150 adoptiononedev

In my arms I held 
The most precious thing 
Known to mankind 

With ten little fingers 
And ten little toes 
Hair of brown and eyes of blue 

So little and fragile 
I didn’t want to let go 

As she looked up at me 
With such uncertain eyes 
She gave out a little cry 
There I knew I had to let go 

I placed her in the arms 
Of one that could not bear her own 
But could give her all I could not 

This person I know will take great 
Care of her 
Her life will be happy and secure 
This I trust with faith and love 

She will grow to understand 
It was out of love for her 
That with a kiss on the cheek 
I placed her in the arms 
Of the one she will call mother

Message to All Adopted Children

150 150 adoptiononedev

Once upon a time, there were two women
That had never met.
One, you do not remember,
The other you call ‘Mommy’

Two different lives
That mold into one, yours.
One was your lucky star,
The other your sun.

The first gave you life,
The second taught you how to live.
The first created in you the need for love,
The second was there to fulfill your need.

One gave you roots,
The other offered you a name.
The first passed on to you her gifts,
The second gave you a purpose.

One created in you the emotion,
The other one calmed your fears.
One received your first smile,
The other one dried your tears.

One offered you in adoption,
It is all she could do for you.
The other asked for having a child,
And God led her to you.

And now when by crying
You ask me the eternal question,
Natural inheritance or education,
Of who am I the fruit?
Neither of the one nor of the other my child,
Simply of two different forms different of LOVE.
