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 it is not their choice
Some I send for a lifetime and others for the 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 to learn our lessons 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 Mom who had so much love for me
I learned my lessons 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 pillows 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 am 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 lessons are through
And on the day 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

Though some on earth may not realize 

Until their time is done remember all the love you have
And know that you are... A Special Mom
