Your Adopted Child


I wonder where my mother is
And why she let me go?
I wish I had my mommy
So much I need to know

How did I come about then
where is my father too?
Oh I wish I had my mommy
She'd know exactly what to do!

Who is this woman kissing me,
Who's up with me at night?
Sometimes I think I hate her
And I diss her just for spite!

I'll never love her back 
And someday I won't stay
I'll make her very sorry
For taking me away


It's been eighteen years now 
And I still search for Mother
I adamantly resent this woman 
As I may have sister or brother

Siblings that I will never know 
Except in the face of Hope
I'll never stop looking for her
I'll stay focused,  I must cope

Somewhere out there
She searches for her boy 
The one she had to give away 
The one who brought her joy


I remember:

Lying in the hospital
Somewhat paralyzed
When an angel stood before me
With Glory in her eyes

"Come my Son I'll take you home,"
said Mom, extending her hand
All my questions are answered
As we followed heavens' plan.

Only now can I appreciate
My earth mom in a while
"I'm here and waiting Mom
I love you,  Your Adopted Child"

    JUDY!!!!!! What an awesome take on this. Proud if you. The content is amazing. Somehow, they always search for the biological parents. A parent is the one who loves. Great write.
