Adoption Poetry

The Mother of My Son

The mother of my son
Her hand upon my shoulder,
Crying tears of joy...
As our child comes into the world.
Eyes bright with love,
She puts him in my arms.
Her hand on his cheek,
My arms snug about him...
He is surrounded by the love
of the mother of my son and I.
