What Makes a Mother

I thought of you and close 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 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 your child smile, with other children and say...
"we go on earth to learn our lessons, of love and life and fear.
My mummy 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 lessons very quickly, my mummy set me free.

I miss my mummy 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.
"Mummy, don't be sad today, I'm your baby and I'm here"
So you see dear sweet one, your children are okay.

Your babies are here in My home, and this is where they will stay.
They'll wait for you with Me, until your lessons are through.
And on the day that 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 mum.

This was shared in N@W today because someone lost her baby. She also asked those of us who are pregnant to celebrate all the pregnancy hormones and issues we have because it's a sure sign our baby was thriving inside. It was a reality check indeed... I hope God didn't think I wasn't grateful for Yamee.
