Heart of mine

A friend of mine that is adopted,
sent me this yesterday.

I couldn't help but get tears in my eyes as I read the words.
Thank you Chelsea for this beautiful poem.

Heart Of Mine

I listened to you, Heart of Mine
For nine months of the year
I called you Little Sweetheart
Darling, Dumpling, Angel Dear

I loved you more than life itself
I prayed for you each day
And when you came all pink and warm
I gave my heart away

I couldn't bear to lose you
But I couldn't keep you fed
I couldn't be the mom you'd need
So I picked one out instead

I trusted her to do for you
What I couldn't do alone
So I kissed your cheek and bid you well
And gave my heart a home

I know that some day you will see
The love that held me tight
To know you had all I could give
And know that I did right

And so I listen still, my heart
Not nine months but all year
And know you know I love you so
You're still my Angel Dear

I love this poem. I had never heard it before until Chelsea sent it to me, and I'm SO glad that she did

I loved this so much that I copied it for my blog...I didn't link to you because I didn't know if you wanted me to since you don't know me, but I'd be happy to if you want.
