In hAdoption Day

Deliberating
Deciding
The presiding judge
Has my foster brother’s future dangling
In her time-worn hands

I disguise my hope
I conceal my thrill
Because this opportunity could be surreal

A cavernous crevice creeping in my heart
A hollow dent to compensate
I gaze at his memorizing baby blue eyes
And in my heart I know he is mine

Ratification is all I need
Because we are linked
Not by blood
Not by DNA
But by the love
That we share every single day

Approval is what I need to survive
Approval is what I have rolling around
in my mind
Approval is the blessing I hope to receive
Approval is what will create a family
Approval is what the judge delivered me

A big sister again I get to be
And I can’t wait for
New memories to arise
As we say our hellos
Instead of good-byes
