For My Baby

I thought of you and closed my eyes

And prayed to God today.

I asked him 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

But 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 her smile

With all the other children and say":


"We go to Earth and learn our lesson

Of love and life and fear.

My mommy loved me 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, she set me free!


I miss my Mummy oh so much

But I visit her each day.

When she goes to sleep

On her pillow is 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 child is okay.

Your baby is here in my home

and this is where she'll stay.

She'll wait for you with me,

until your lesson is through,

and the day that you'll come home

She'll be at the gates for you.


So now you see what makes a mother

Is the feeling in your heart.

It's the love you had, so much of it,

right from the very start."
