My Son


I met you on the eve of summer
You smiled at me and claimed my heart
You told me of your world and your sadness
I knew then we would never part

I am your mother now
I took you into my soul
You had so much to learn
With me you become whole

Someone did not want you
A mother left you for dead
And now I am the mother
That holds and loves you instead

You were not born of my body
But you were born of my love
You came to me on Summers Eve
A gift I cherish from above

My son from another mother
My heart you did steal
My son from another father
You became a mother's thrill

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
