There once was a mother of twins
She loved them very much within
They were born with each having their own mind
with different personalities, but both are kind
As proud as proud could be
this mother took pictures for all to see
His toddler hair went from light to brown
Blond has always been on her crown
His eyes changed from a blue to a brown hue
while her eyes remained a sparkling blue
Life was not as hard as you would think
They grew up in a matter of a blink
Her once little ones are no longer small
The boy runs fast and the girl plays ball
The boy is as spirited as one can be
The girl’s good nature is her key
He likes to lead
She strives to succeed
With college hunting around the corner
this mother became more of a mourner
The mother wonders what they will be
once they are off and set free
She can’t help but worry and stress
that they may not be a huge success
She calls out to God in her time of despair
She recalls how deep He really does care
He reaffirms, “There’s no need to distress
with their trust in Me, they’ll be a success.”
With those words on her mind
a restful sleep she did find
