The Gift


He lay in her arms and she gazed at his lips
Her fingers trembled as she traced nails, and fingertips
Her tears fell slowly as she cuddled her son
She knew in her heart that their journey was done.

You were not for me, you were meant for another
You were my son, but I was never your mother
I was the one who gave you away
On a cloudy morning in the month of May.

The decision wasn't easy, it tore at my heart
But your life would be better if we were apart
I was too young to be a good mother
So I gave you a gift, and I got you another.

Her tears fell slowly as she gazed at her son
She knew in her heart his journey had just begun.

Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

This is the most precious gift that can ever be given.... also the most painful. Thanx so much for sharing this.

I have tried and just can't find the words to say anything but that I have the deepest respect for anyone who has a decision like this to make.

There came whisperings in the winds:
"Good-bye! Good-bye!"
Little voices called in the darkness:
"Good-bye! Good-bye!"
Then I stretched forth my arms.
"No -- no -- "
There came whisperings in the wind
"Good-bye! Good-bye!"
Little voices called in the darkness:
"Good-bye! Good-bye!"

Sad, to the point of... heartwrenching. But beutifully written, and expressed.
