To My Birth Mother – Thank You


You loved me once
I believe it’s true
From the bottom of my heart
No words will do.

Ripped from your flesh
A moment too soon
You provided my lifeline
You gave me the moon.

And stars and planets
And the earth below my feet
You could have let go sooner
Admitted defeat.

I’ll love you forever
Knowing you were the one
Without your courage
There’d be no sun.

There’d be no universe
In which I would live
I don’t understand why you let go of me
But the greatest gift did you give.

The two I called parents
Who raised me with care
Owe you all their blessings
Deny, they wouldn’t dare.

I’m glad that I found you
Although it’s too late
To thank you in person
Would not be our fate.

I look to your son
Since you’ve passed away
I love my new brother
Yesterday, tomorrow, and today.
