Two Different Kinds of Love

Legacy of an adopted child Author unknown


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 you one
One became your guiding star
The other became your sun

The first one gave you life
And the second taught you to live it
The first gave you a need for love
The second was there to give it

One gave you a nationality
The other gave you a name
One gave you a talent
The other gave you aim.

One gave you emotions,
The other calmed your fears
One saw your first sweet smile,
The other dried your tears.

One sought for you a home
That she could not provide,
The other prayed for a child,
And her hope was not denied.

And now you ask me,
through your tears,
The age old question,
unanswered through the years.

Heredity or environment,
which are you a product of?
Neither my darling, neither.
Just two different kinds of love.
