lost, can't replace

for my daughter who was adopted at birth, today she is 27

Heart of Mine

I listened to you, Heart of Mine
For nine months of the year
I called you Little Sweetheart
Darling, Dumpling, Angel Dear
I loved you more then life itself
I prayed for you each day
And when you came all pink and warm
I gave my heart away
I couldn't bear to lose you
But I couldn't keep you fed
I couldn't be the Mom you'd need
So I picked one out instead
I trusted her to do for you
What I couldn't do alone
So I kissed your cheek and bid you well
And gave my heart a home
I know that some day you will see
The love that held me tight
To know you had all I could give
And know that I did right
And so I listen still, my Heart
Not nine months but all year
And know you know I Love You so
You're still my Angel Dear
