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 the need for love, and the
second was there to give it.
One gave you nationality. The other
gave you a name. One gave the seed
of talent. The other gave you aim.
One gave you emotion. The other calmed
your fears. One saw your first sweet
smile. The other dried 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 question through the years.
Heredity or environment - Which are you
the product of?
Neither my darling neither - Just two
different kinds of love.
