The adoption papers must be signed

“The adoption papers must be signed now”
“I want her, I dare not keep her”
“I want her, how could you withhold her?”
“I want her, I must have her!”
“As you say dear, we’ll go get her”

The child is so beautiful
everyone becomes soft and warm
in such a presence
their hard hearts melt
soft rivulets
of unshed tears
unfelt pain
unexpressed joy
the wonder of existence
shines outward
and catches us all
in the heart
we are wounded
we are healed
we are each a small sun
when we meet this child.gold
