Where Do Babies Come From?
Where do babies come from
a question as a child I would wonder,
when I asked my mother this question
her answers often made me ponder.
'I found you under a cabbage patch,'
or the stork brought you to my door,
'I don't know' is what she would say,
and confuse me even more.
I thought I had it all figured out
when I saw the doctor carry a black bag
into the door of my cousins house
a baby was left there and that's no gag.
My girlfriend's mother was a pastor's wife
she told me the facts of life one day,
explaining all the deep details
in such a wonderful glowing way.
Since my mother had so often said,
'I don't know' to me, I thought it true,
I couldn't wait to tell her all about it,
why her faced turned red I never knew.
I guess these facts were to be secrets
to my mother who couldn't explain,
but the pastor's wife taught me
it was God's blessing, and no shame.
I learned that love and sex are good
and by God they were created,
but they're not to be misused
while for the right one we waited.
I was so glad to get all these many
Generational misunderstandings cleared
and was thankful to know these simple facts
and found they were ones to be revered.
