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 kids and say

'We go to earth to learn our lessons of Love and Life and Fear,
My Mummy Loved me oh so much, I got to come straight here..
I feel so lucky to have a Mum, who had so much love for me
I learned my lesson very quickly, My mummy set me free.
I miss my Mummy 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

Mummy don't be sad today, I'm your baby and I'm here.
' So you see my dear sweet one, your children are okay
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.
An angel in the book of life wrote down my babys birth
and whispered as she closed the book -
"Too beautiful for earth."
