A Dream, by Lain L.
Our friendship started differently
than most friendships I've had.
We had to search each other out
because of something sad.
A precious child to fill your hearts
is what you're longing for.
Infertility has made it hard
to open up that door.
And so a search began for you
to find a helping heart.
So similar to my own search
not knowing where to start.
For me the search is special
it requires such great care.
A couple to help have a child...
the fruit my search must bare.
Now we've found each other
so much more real it seems.
Through faith and hope and honesty
we're moving toward your dream.
But the dream we have,
it is the same,
a dream that's filled with firsts.
First smiles, first laughs, first steps, first words....
all starting with a birth.
Often times I find myself
wondering what it's like
to have to trust a stranger
with such a precious life.
And though I can't imagine
all that you've been through,
I've been so blessed in my life
I'm drawn to helping you.
And I hope you know I'll do my best
to bring a child to you.
Some people call us Angels
us surro-moms to be.
But I don't feel Angelic,
I just feel like me.
Our journey is just starting,
and no one knows the end.
I pray it brings to you a child
and brings to me a friend.

The time has come you see,
you have spent nine months with me.
We had a rough beginning, a little touch and go.
But you would make it fine, once you started to grow.
So many people love you so very much.
I couldn't wait for the moment you felt mommy's touch
No, my little darling, that is not me.
I carried you for another and someday you will see.
I look in your sweet and oh so beautiful face,
and everything freezes, this time and place.
As I slowly hand you over to your loving mom and dad,
my heart is filled with happiness,
but my eyes are kind of sad.
For nine long months I've had you near my heart,
and it makes me sort of sad that we finally have to part.
But the sparkle that I see in your parent's eyes
and the joy that I hear in their happy cries,
makes this ever so easy and so right.
I have a feeling angels will sleep with you tonight
