Poems from the Heart


LEGACY OF AN ADOPTED CHILD
Once there were two women
Who never knew each other
One you do not remember
The other you call mother

Two different lives
Shaped to make yours one
One became your guiding star
The other became your sun

One gave you emotions
The other calmed your fears
One saw your first sweet smile
The other dried your tears

One gave you a nationality
the other gave you a name
One gave you the seed of talent
The other gave you an aim

The first gave you life
and the second taught you to live in it.
The first gave you a need for love
And the second was there to give it.


One gave you up*****
It was all that she could do.
The other prayed for a child****
And God led her straight to you.

And now you ask me through your tears
The age-old question through the years.
Heredity or environment****which are you
the product of?
Neither my darling****Neither
Just two different kinds of love


TODAY I KISSED AN ANGEL
Today I kissed an angel
I knew it from the start
The first time my angel smiled at me
I gave away my heart

Today I kissed an angel
This angel child of mine
Though not of my creation
This child by God's design

Today I kissed an angel
My heart is dancing wild
Our family, by a miracle
Blessed by our angel child
