I made a rag doll for my baby.
It had yarn for hair and a cold hard stare.
That didn’t mean maybe.
It meant life isn’t fair.

I stuffed it with cotton
Stitched on lips of red
Made a pinafore
Always smiling but nothing said.

Her eyes lit up when she saw it
Because it was something she could love.
Be a guardian angel over it.
Like the angels above.

I made a rag doll for my baby.
It never hugged back.
Never gave a hoot lately.
But my baby didn’t sense lack.

She just put it up to her shoulder
And patted its’ little back
She was a mother.
Gave it a squeeze and smiled back.
