The Return of the Son
by Amber Sommer
A piece of my heart returned today.
I don't know how to put it another way
But the gift that was given to another
has now returned for me, the birth-mother
The sense of loss was never perceived
I never doubted, or worried, or grieved.
The Lord gave me a sense of His perfect plans
I knew that this son was in His hands.
The day of his birth came like a thief in the night
Born on his due date - we were surprised alright!
Just days before we were told, "there's no way-
This baby's not ready to come on that day."
Yet Joy filled the room at 7:09!
The first touch of his mother soothed his first cry -
I'll never forget the peace in that place
The tears of joy in their eyes, and love on their faces
The baby was given with love, trust, and care
Knowing the parents had God's love to share
The fruit of the Spirit flowed from our hearts
As we hugged , said goodbye; it was time to depart.
The months to years turned, like the page of a story
Each page filled with pictures of a boy growing in glory.
A heart full of God, the boy had from the start -
Bearing a sense of holiness: for the Lord-set-apart
