Two Babies

Two babies sleep tonight
In the dark of their mother's womb.
One will see the light of day
One only the tomb.
Two babies sleep in silence
Awaiting their first birthday.
Both gifts from a loving God
To grace many lives along the way.
Two mothers struggle with the news
Of a child they did not plan.
Two grapple with their private fears
Not knowing if they can.
One mother will say "Yes"
With a trembling frightened voice.
One sadly will see no way
And make that frightful "choice."
For these precious babes I kneel and pray
And for their mothers too.
Lord touch their hearts gently
I lift them up to You.
