You were too silent and lethargic
We feared you'd vanish like a sea foam
Looking small and lost
We wondered if we'll all make it through
In the middle of the night
Listening for your sobs of ache
We'd sneakily check up on you
Afraid that you'd be gone
It was a hit-and-miss
But it was all worth the tears
We love you very much
We have deep and unbreakable ties
Don't you ever forget
Set that fact in stone
You weren't born from my womb
Rest assured, you were born from the heart
You were too silent and lethargic, looking small and lost. We would lie awake, afraid that you'd be gone. But it was all worth the tears. We love you very much. Don't you ever forget you were born from the heart.

This is a bit connected to the first poem about adoption I posted nearly a week ago but this can also stand alone. I'm considering making a series of poems that revolve around family. That aside, this is also my entry for @sammosk's competition this week. Please check both links out :) Thanks for reading!
