Adoption poem “Somebody’s Mother”

Madonna & child, Basilica of San Domenico, Siena, Tuscany, Italy. Martin Land

Somebody’s Mother

Somebody’s mother today
Will linger by her phone
Hoping one child will call
Before the day has flown.
Somebody’s mother will weep,
Heartbroken and stunned tonight,
Because her children gone
Forgot to call or write.
Somebody’s mother somewhere
Will kiss with lips of grief,
Portraits of children grown
And cry herself to sleep.
