Across the Ocean Blue

I wrote this poem for all the Mommies to be out there. The long wait is hard and I actually thought I had nothing to blog about this month. But instead I reached inside, and with a little attempt at prose decided to dedicate this to Adoption Mama's in waiting.

Across this ocean deep and blue,
A child waits for me and you.

Her anguished mother, so brave
and bold,
Wept softly placing her
infant down; desperately hoping her
child would be found.

This incredible act of courage and tears,
now brings hope to someone like me,
For I have waitied a lifetime to love a child
and finally be called "Mommy".

So while that day seems far away there is
always hope in my heart.
The love between a mother and child is one
that is not easily broken apart.
For now I pray for the orphans and their Mothers
Hoping soon, one day, we will cross this great blue
ocean to you.
