Sun Kissed Days

of the orphanage with a note.
The note pinned to his chest,
stated that she was giving up.
She couldn't help herself she said,
she is living in a tent,
her only hope is for him,
to have a brand new life.
Sweet baby boy, eight weeks old,
embraced by strangers in the dark,
in seconds he captured their heart.
She will never know her son,
what kind of man he'll be.
The dreams he will carry within.
His pain of a broken heart,
the ache his soul will feel.
His resolve will make him stronger,
his strength will lead the way,
to dreams and hopes, second chances.

Second chances are sure powerful aren't they? My motto is that it is never too late to find joy in life.ReplyDelete

Wow – what a powerful poem. Is this based on something you saw or heard about recently?ReplyDelete
Yes, Juliana. This is based on a client's story about this orphanage in Haiti , and this eight week baby boy that was left by the gate of the orphanage. I thought about him for days. There are many cases of children that their parents perished and children that are abandoned.ReplyDelete
I agree-very powerful and moving.ReplyDelete

Beautiful, Ayala. And heartbreaking, especially because this is one story of so many.ReplyDelete
As the mother of a child who was given a second chance (though not in circumstances as dire as these), this post was beautiful. The human spirit is an amazing thing.ReplyDelete
