Dear Birth Mom

by Heather's Starting End

I am sure that I once saw you,
When I came in to this life
I believe I must have looked at you,
When I first opened up my eyes

Your face, I don’t remember
God somehow made it so
That those visions are not memories,
Possible to stow

I believe that our skin once touched,
Though for sure, I’ll never know
If you held me for just moments,
Before forever letting go

My mirror casts, your reflection,
Though I can’t say really where
Is it in my eyes, my frame, or my smile?
Just perhaps my light brown hair

I somehow find it truly sad,
That again we never met
I wish to say I thank you,
Your choice, please don’t regret

You gave me life, though set me free,
Into loving arms
A Mom and Dad with two great brothers
Protected always, from lifes harm

I hope your life has served you well
And that you too, with time have thrived
Maybe once again, I’ll see your face,
In heaven with my eyes
