I hate to admit this, but I have deleted it from my hard drive and email history...

It's a poem that an unborn child is writing for its mother. The last couple lines go something like this:

While you getting ready for me,

I was busy choosing you.

I know it's not much to go on, but I really need to find it...

Hmm, I know what one you're talking about. I thought I had seen it on one of the other boards I post on. I went looking and haven't found it yet, but did find this one. Hope you like it!


edd 3/8

Once upon a time, there was a child ready to be born.

So one day he asked God:"They tell me that you are sending me to earth tomarrow.How am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"

"Among the many angels, I chose one for you. She will be waiting for you and will take care of you."

"But tell me, here in Heaven, I don't do anything but sing and smile. That's enough for me to be happy. How am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me, if I don't know the language that men talk on earth?"

"Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."

"And what am I going to do when I want to talk with you?"

"Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray."

"I've heard that on earth there are bad people. Who will protect me?"

"Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its own life."

"But I will be sad because I will not see you anymore."

"Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way for you to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you."

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from earth could already be heard, and the child in a hurry asked softly: "Oh God, if I am about to leave now, please tell me my angel's name."

"Your angel's name is of no importance. You will simply call her Mommy."
