Mary Knight - Poem by Sarah Marie

I sit on my bed
Hair lying down my back
In my white nightgown
As I lay down to take a midnight nap

I first put on some slippers
And stand on the cold wood floor
To walk down the hall
To my brothers door

I inch open the door
To see my brother napping
Then I heard a tapping
At my front door

I walk to the front door
Wondering who would be here
This winter night
I opened the door, never seeing such a sight

A child lay
A the foot of my door
Wide eyed
like she had never seen a person before

I took her to my mothers door
Crept in
And sat on the floor
Rocking the child back and forth

her eyes were as blue as the sky
And brown curls
That caress her delicate face
As she snuggles into my arms

My mother awakes
As dawn begins to break
She gazes upon The girls face
Who is wide awake

She takes her from my hands
And lays her on the bed
At the moment when my brother walks in
And sees the girl staring at him, again and again

The child looked like an angel
Sent from above
Then I noticed

she was

she had wings that parted
Behind her back
And a halo appeared
Poking up, high above her back

I find a note
Pinned to her blanket
As I read
To see what it says

It reads:
“dear Elizabeth,
I grant you this child
To raise for me

she is the daughter of Ezekiel
And means a lot to me.
Please raise her
To be the child of mine

And live through life
Spreading my word.
p.s. it will take time.”

I knew exactly who it was
It was from the lord above
He knew I wanted to help him
Because I gave him all my love

I took the girl
And held her tight
Giving her a name
Mary Knight

From this day on
My life has changed
I’m in a different road
With the love of my life

My child
Mary Knight
