love as big as the sun

Once there were two women,
who barely knew each other.

One is in your heart forever,
the other you'll call Mother.

Two different lives,
shaped to make your one.
One became your guiding star,
the other became your sun.
The first gave you a life,
the second taught you to live it.

The first gave you a need for love,
the second taught you to give it.

One gave you a nationality,
the other gave you a name.

One gave you a seed of talent,
the other gave you an 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.

One prayed for a child,
and God led her straight to you.

And now you ask me through your tears,
the age old question throughout the years..

Heredity or environment?
which are you a product of?

Neither, my darling, neither.
Just two different kinds of love.
Happy Mother's Day.
