Two Women  


author unknown


Once there were two women

Who never knew each other

One you do not remember

The other you call Mother.


Two different lives

Shaped to make yours one.

One became your guiding star

The other became your sun.


The first gave you life

And the second taught you to live in it

The first gave you a need for love

And the second was there to give it.


One gave you a nationality

The other gave you a name

One gave you the seed of a talent

The other gave you an aim.


One gave you emotions

The other calmed your fears

One saw your first sweet smile

The other dried up your tears.


One gave you up-

It was all that she could do.

The other prayed for a child

And God led her straight to you.


And now you ask me

Through your tears,

The age-old questions

Through the years,


heredity or environment -

Which are you the product of?

Neither, my darling, neither

Just two different kinds of Love. Copyrighted 2009 by Snoopy Dude Graphics
