Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone,
Yet never more so my own.
Never forget for a single minute,
You didn't grow under my heart - but in it.

Ah. That is beautiful. smile

It's a lovely one smile

I also like this little rhyme:

"I didn’t give you the gift of life,
But in my heart I know.
The love I feel is deep and real,
As if it had been so.
For us to have each other
Is like a dream come true.
No, I didn’t give you the gift of life,
Life gave me the gift of you"

This one is my very favourite - it's in a book called "How to avoid kissing you parents in public", which I bought after reading this poem (I can't remember where I first read it - maybe here?).

WILL YOU BE MY FAMILY?
by Lindsay MacRae

Will you take my picture?
Will you take my side?
Will you take the pain away
I¹ve tried so hard to hide?

Will you watch me play in goal
In foul or freezing weather?
Could we spend all Christmases
And holidays together?

Will you pack a lunch for me?
Sometimes hold my hand?
Can we be just ordinary?
Do you understand?

When I throw a tantrum
Will you promise not to pack?
If I learn to love you
Will you try to love me back?

Will we see the funny side?
Laugh when times get tough?
We will be a family
That will be enough.
