Passing the time

While I wait I’m passing the time keeping busy. LOL Here’s a poem I wrote. Keep in mind this is for my class, I’m not a poet. This was hard work! :weightlifter

A family Forever- a sonnet

A mother?s heart is yearning for a child.
A child sighs, she?s longing for a home.
As yet her heart is young and free and wild
undamaged by the world that she has known.
?Cross land and sea a million miles away
impossible it seems the twain could meet
yet pure celestial prompting shows the way
and links their hearts together as one beat.
At last the child with wary eyes appears,
a furtive glance, she peeks at Mother?s face,
finds Mother?s cheeks are glistening with tears
her arms wide open for a first embrace.

Encircled in a loving mother?s arms
a family forever, safe and warm.
