God's Plan

I came into this world too soon,
Just two and a half pounds unfinished,
God must have had a plan for me,
Or my breath would have diminished.
I guess His plan had just begun,
It must have been a test,
To see exactly what He could send,
And where the tiny souls could rest.
For when I was two, I ate a bean,
It sprouted to inches of four,
How strong, but gentle, must this body be,
To hold one child? or more?
It took some time, about 23 years,
He gave me nine, plus two,
My special children, 7 daughters, 2 sons,
And the other two I never knew.
He must have needed them right away
To brighten up His heaven,
And in His time, He'll want the other nine
And my stars will shine, all eleven.
