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 a 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 straight to you.
And now you ask me through your tears,
     The age old question through the years;
Heredity or Environment - which are you
     the product of?
Neither my darling - neither
     Just two different kinds of love.
