Two Mothers, One Prayer

Two women from different places
Share a common prayer,
Though different circumstances
Common is their care.

For these very different women
Will pray in one accord,
On bended-knee they ask these things
Their prayer begins "Dear Lord."

"Lord, be with this little child
Keep them close to you,
Guide them and direct them
In everything they do."

And even as I pray this
Another mother prays it, too,
May you always know her love-
To be genuine and true.

You'll forever have two mothers
Who share a single prayer,
One brought you to the world
Then placed you in the other's care.
