'Reflections Of A Mother'
I gave you life,
but cannot live it for you.
I can give you directions,
but I cannot be there to lead you.
I can take you to church,

I can teach you right from wrong,
but I cannot always decide for you.
I can buy you beautiful clothes,
but I cannot make you beautiful inside.
I can offer you advice,
but I cannot accept it for you.
I can give you love,
but I cannot force it upon you.
I can teach you to share,

Because God will give a new body to me
Give my blood so another may live
A good life for another is my objective
Give my bones so another may stand
They will get around without holding a hand
