Was it a mistake? Or a reminder?



A mistake of the hand?
I made one too many

A reminder of the heart?

When we saw an empty place

more than a few tears dropped

on our new table.

I promise

that as long as I live and

have another breath in me

and there are orphans in the world

we will always have extra.


So to all of you who ask the question

"will you adopt again?"

the answer is always going to be
Yes
because of
James 1v27
Religion that God our Father
accepts as pure and faultless is
this: to look after orphans and widows
in their distress and to keep oneself
form being polluted by the world.
