"Two Different Kinds Of Love"

Once there were two women
Who never knew each other.
One you do not remember
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 nationality
The other gave you a name.
One gave you the seed of talent
The other gave you an aim.

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 to you.

And now you ask me through the tears,
The age old questions through the years,
Heredity or Environment - of which are you a product.
Neither my Darling - neither
Just two different kinds of love.
