In my Arms I Held.....

In my arms I held

The most precious thing

Known to mankind

With ten little fingers

And ten little toes

Hair of brown and eyes of blue

So little and fragile

I didn't want to let go

As she looked up at me

With such uncertain eyes

She gave out a little cry

There I knew I had to let go

I placed her in the arms

Of one that could not bear her own

But could give her all I could not

This person I know will take great

Care of her

Her life will be happy and secure

This I trust with faith and love

She will grow to understand

It was out of love for her

That with a kiss on the cheek

I placed her in the arms

Of the one she will call mother
