What Makes A Mother~
I thought of you and closed my eyes
And prayed to God today.
I asked what makes a Mother And I know I heard him say.
A Mother has a baby This we know is true.
But God can you be a Mother When your baby's not with you?
Yes, you can He replied With confidence in His voice
I give many women babies When they leave is not their choice.
Some I send for a lifetime And others for a day.
And some I send to feel your womb But there's no need to stay.
I just don't understand this, God I want my baby here
He took a breath and cleared His throat And then I saw a tear.
I wish I could show you What your child is doing today.
If you could see your child smile With other children and say
"We go to earth and learn our lessons Of love and life and fear.
My Mommy loved me oh so much I got to come straight here.
I feel so lucky to have a Mom Who had so much love for me
I learned my lesson very quickly My Mommy set me free.
I miss my Mommy oh so much But I visit her each day.
When she goes to sleep On her pillow's where I lay.
I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek And whisper in her ear
"Mommy don't be sad today I'm your baby and I'm here."
So you see my dear sweet one Your children are OK
Your babies are here in My home And this is where they'll stay.
They'll wait for you with me Until your lesson is through
And on the day that you come home They'll be at the gates for you.
So now you see what makes a Mother It's the feeling in your heart.
It's the love you had so much of Right from the very start.
hi i just read the poem posted to the comment titled "remembering my angel". i just want to say that i really want to thank whoever posted that. one of my best friends just found out she is miscarrying. she and her husband have been trying for months after losing a child last year. it is almost exactly a year since they lost their son, and i am really grieving for them to be going through this loss. this poem is beautiful and i really appreciate it at this time.
Thank you so much for sharing that poem. I had tears running down my cheeks while reading it. I lost my babies almost two months ago, and I'm really struggling right now. This poem is a great reminder that I will get to see my sons again. Thank you.
I was crying so hard reading this poem. I just had a D&C two days ago so this is all still very fresh for me. I have to believe that my baby is in a better place or else I will just go crazy Thank you for posting this poem!!!
