babys hair with a womans eyes
lips so sweet she is a treat
Summertime out playing in the park
with baby's breath the lavender scent quest

Samantha was her name
loved to be loved with a peaceful heart to impart
she loved horses and her boyfriend to
keeping quiet in her garden with beautiful flowers adorned

the trees were her friend whom she grew to depend out of silence from within
she cried that day her boyfriend left her but he never did forget her
for he was a soldier going off to war
news came back to Samantha that he was killed in a battle

she was so heart broken but found out she was pregnant with his child
a lovely baby came in the world a girl as if in a dream
raised her baby well that was until
she had run out of money running on empty

had to give the baby up for adoption yet this wasn't her option
suffering Samantha deep inside
she ran away to her garden suffering in silence deep inside
there a beautiful angel met her told her she was called to be a dear sister among the blessed order of the Mt. Claire nuns...

she was deeply relieved more then ready to achieve
praying, meditating and loving
many years would pass at every reason to grasp
a knock came at her door for it was

none other but her little girl
This time all grown up as a woman with flowers in her hair
A loving embrace but Samantha had insisted with faith her call was to honor Jesus
but she couldn't resist to have visits from her daughter

A moment lived out in history
where at times life can be a great mystery
Samantha had achieved great dignity with belief.
