The Adopted Child

The Adopted Child

God delivered me to earth today,
in the form of a tiny seed.
He heard you could not carry me,
so He disguised me as a weed.
He said I would bring many tears,
of heartbreak and delight.
He said I was the prayer,
of a chosen man and wife.
Your eyes are the source of my unveiling,
the rose I meant to be.
I was born for you,
and you were joined for me.
(1995)
