Love this Poem!!!

An Orphan's Prayer

Each night before I go to bed I fold my hands and bow my head Praying for a family and the day she will come for me I ask God to watch over my friends at the orphanage, The place that I call home Wishing we find families and rooms of our very own. I finish my prayers and climb into bed Hoping that God heard what I said. My prayers usually turn out to be my dreams at night Hoping she will be standing there when I wake to the morning light. One very special morning, I will hear their call, I jump out of bed and run down the hall! Is it her, Is it her, is that why they've called my name? Running I hear them shout "It's her, it's her, she finally came!" Have all my prayers been answered, have all my dreams come true There she is in front of me, Oh Mama! Oh Mama!! Is it really you?

"Yes, it is my darling, I've come to take you home," "I will love, protect and cherish and you will never be alone." Mama looks at me so differently a look so new to me, She touches me so gently, just as I dreamed it would be. As I look into her eyes I watch them fill with water, She embraces me and whispers, "I love you so my daughter". She takes my hand and I hold it tight, I will never let it go, I hold with all my might. Hand in hand we walk together, No one needs to speak; we know this is forever. And through our journey when we finally meet each other, She will have found her dream and I will have found my mother.
