To the Mothers of Children Who Never Were Children
Music: Lovely Molly.
|To the mothers of children who never were children,|
Who died in the womb unnamed and unknown:
You also were mothers, albeit but briefly,
And loved with the love given mothers alone.
Yours was the stirring of life within life,
Yours the unspeakable pleasure of giving
Death is the end, but never the meaning;
