Once there were two women,
who barely knew each other.
One you don't know yet,
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 emotions,
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.
So, you ask me one day, heredity or environment
what are you the product of?
Neither, my darling, neither.
Just two different kinds of love.
