Her Tiny Face - Poem by Heather Burns

It was Sunday the day
was cold
she came to my door
as I was told

needed a mother to
take care
like running a brush
through her hair

looking at her tiny face
I asked God give me
grace

help me today is all I ask
make a decision for this
task

my spirit guide showed me
the way
With his advice prepared
the day

as I touched her tiny face
face
I felt God giving me grace

her name is in my family tree
this little girl means the
world to me.

    This is perhaps one of the best deeds, a person can do in a lifetime. By accepting that orphaned little one as part of your family and being a mother to her, you have given purpose and meaning to her life.

    this little girl means the
    world to me.

    This speaks volumes..... Heather, now I look upon you with greater respect! ! (Report) Reply

A tiny face which touched a heart, her visit expected, I feel a lot of healing took place allowing that little girl to become part of your family. Wonderful write! Thank you for sharing, Heather...
