Protected by Love

The day that I was born,
An angel was waiting for me.
With an open heart and arms,
I was welcomed to my family.


Tis quite a journey I traveled,
From such a beautiful place.
I left my father from above,
And then saw my motherís face.


So perfect in every way,
As she looked at me and smiled.
I promised God to take care of you
And hold your hand for a while.


Until itís time to let you go,
Safe to be on your own.
Iíll always love and protect you.
Even when you are grown.

"I asked the Lord to give me this child, and he has given me my request."
1 Samuel 1:27

I didn't know how full my heart could become, until I became a mother.
