~ I Have A Reason For Being Here ~

When I was getting ready to be born
I, as the angels in Heaven,
Why was I, being sent to a life of unknown
They told me, it was because I was God's very own,
I wanted to live forever,
Among the skies so blue,
It was so peaceful there, knowing I must leave
My heart became heavy too.

God told me I must come to earth
Because He had a special plan,
I knew it would not be easy
I must do it, because it was God's command.
So I was born in sorrow and joy,
My mom who gave me life, could not give me what I need,
So she gave me to my mother
Who held me tenderly.

When I was grown and found out my fate
I did not know how to cope.
I went to find my family,
I had a great deal of hope.
I found my mom had wanted me
Through the years,
My sister and brother loved me
They talk to me through their tears.

I talked to God again
As I thought I was a big mistake,
Why did you send me here,
Please take me back.
But, God sent me an angel, she gave me good advice
I now have a reason for being born, it is true
I will help others,
Who are having problems seeing it through.

So I cry with the birth mothers in search of a loss that is real,
I help the adopted child feel,
Who looks for answers about their past
They too ask if they have a reason for being here,
At last
To cry, I have a purpose
I want to make a mark,
"Do you remember me"
In the silence of the dark.
