A Birthday Wish

A baby was born
Ten years ago today;
The child of my heart,
An ocean away.

A crease on her palm
And almond-shaped eyes,
Meant for a mother,
She must say goodbye.

So long she has waited,
So much she has grown
One wish has the girl,
A mommy, a home.

Another birthday,
Another year passed;
Sweet child of my heart,
I promise, the last.

A late birthday gift,
If only you knew;
Just a few months more,
Your wish will come true.
