Baby Girl Never Forgotten - Poem by Katherine Kay Graven

With arms reached out you were given in love
To share your life with someone other than us
You were taken away to somewhere unknown
Only a couple of pictures to lets us know where you belonged

The timing was numbered as night turned to day
We knew you would come looking for us someway
Because I know you remember your mothers tearful kiss
You wondered if you were loved by the family you never met

Oh we were upset to think what was done
Because of the life which had been foregone
The chance to say hello and we well first time meet
Only blowing softly in a distant silent welcoming breeze


Baby girl you were never forgotten
In no worries of how it would play
For the star foretold of the bitter sweet day
You would be welcomed come what may

With only a screen to fill your unsure fate
Looking for a sign to show you the only way
With a click of a mouse and a name that seemed distant
You knew the longing connection when you seen it.

Mothers love is always unfailing
Family ties became unveiling
With the will of God's mercy and grace
You found us girl without any haste

Your voice was sweet like Angels from heaven
All the years of wondering seem so distant
Now you know where you got those beautiful brown eyes
And the voice of an angel and music was realized


Our arms opened wide with the binding of love
Washing over you like wind brushing over the wings of a soaring dove
You seen your imperfections and stared into the unknown
You looked at your mother and sister and was instantly blown


So no more doubts of who you are
For the blood of kin will always flow within our hearts
Forever being sealed in the depths of our souls
Baby girl you have found the place you will always belong.
