What makes a mother?

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 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 deep breath and cleared His throat, 
And then I saw the tear. 

"I wish that I could show you, 
What your child is doing today. 
If you could see your child smile, 
With all the other children and say... 

'We go to Earth to learn our lessons, 
Of love and life and fear. 
My Mummy loved me oh 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 quick, 
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 pillow's 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 ones, 
Your children are okay. 
Your babies are born here in My home, 
And this is where they'll stay. 

They'll wait for you with Me, 
Until your lesson's 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. 
They'll be up here with Me one day 

And know that you're the best Mum!" 

I told my parents last night about the miscarriage and they couldn't believe that I hadn't told them before now.  They were just so sad for us but they were very helpful in what they said to comfort us.  My Mum said that I will always know I am a Mum to this baby and a very good one too.  I thought that was very kind and thoughtful of her.  I thank God for my own Mum.
