Love Is All That Matters
An open heart is an invitation for love
I opened up mine
out of me, popped an Angel from above!
Wasn't such an easy feat for me to do
I had to believe
allow a wingless wonder to come through
Eight pregnancies before I had known
I must keep this one
miraculously I was somehow shown
Rapes and cervical cancer were my past
I loved his Dad
all I had to do was the universe to ask
Daddy did not want a child at that time
I chose wisely
fearful warnings about those eggs of mine
Grandma loves him as official first grandson
I phone her
enjoying hearing old lady speak to blessed one
Auntie's appreciate his quiet nature as seen
I adore him
for he knows where we both have been
Our life's path has been like no worldly other
I held on
seeing him returned safely to this soul mother
Stolen away at the tender age of wee eight
I cried ever so
eight traumatic months I did patiently wait
Apprehended to a gay male foster home
I almost died
many deaths for innocence once known
Targeted by both family and community
I do forgive
ignorance with compassion and not pity
Let down by the wounded world around me
I keep loving
the brightest white light I fearlessly set free!
True LOVE offers many gifts; one of which is Courage.
Go for the Gold!
I snapped this candle-lit picture of my shining son, Kaelin and I, this enchanted evening, before we sat down to 30 honey beeswax candles and a LIGHT dinner.
Please enjoy one more precious image of my beautiful boy and his "Amazing Mommy" whom shall forever hold gratitude in her happy heart.
