I love Blue Mountain cards and they are having a contest for aspiring writers. I decided to give it a try though I am not sure it has a chance of winning.
On Your Adoption Day
I knew I loved you when I saw you.
Despite you not knowing me.
I wanted you here inside my home,
To be forever my child.
Your path to date has been difficult,
I cannot fix your past hurts.
But I will love you from this day on
Because it’s what you deserve.
I know that we might have our problems.
I understand trust takes time.
But today when giving you my name.
I swear to stay by your side.
