Goodbye Child I’ll Never Have

teardrop

Goodbye child I’ll never have

I really did love you

And hope we would’ve had

more time – more time than

never – to share.

Just so you know I worked hard for you

so hard that I didn’t have any time

to even decide when to let you

come into this world.

However, I didn’t want you to live like I had to live – poor and destitute and on food

stamps for over 10 years of my life.

I wanted so much better for you than my parents ever could’ve given me.

But now I’ll never know what I could’ve given you because I never had the chance

to even conceive you let alone get to know you.

I meant well, though.

I wanted the best for you, even if it meant you’d never be born – never exist.

Goodbye child I’ll never have. Goodbye.
