The Hardest Day of My Life

It was a day like no other.
A day I gave birth to my beautiful daughter,
then handed her into the arms of another.

A day when I knew what I was doing for her
would be right.
A day when my heart and mind would fight!

A day when I knew in letting her go
my heart would never mend.
A day when I’d wish my life would just end.

A day when I’d pray to my Father above,
and ask that he give me the courage
to allow this baby I love, to leave
and have a life for her which right now
I could only dream of.

A day when I’d love her and dream of being her mother.
A day when I’d lovingly place her in the arms
of her new father and mother.

A day I’ll cherish as the years go by.
A day I’ll remember with tears in my eyes.
