True Love

True Love

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 fragileI 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 herHer life will be happy and secure
This I trust with faith and love
She will grow to understandIt was out of love for her
That with a kiss on the cheekI placed her in the arms
Of the one she will call mother
