To Lose A Child
Behind the poem
I wrote this poem among others, after going through an ectopic pregnancy. It was a very difficult time in my life. When we discovered we were pregnant, I got so excited. I let my hopes get too high that everything was going to go smoothly. Then I went for an immediate ultrasound on account of previous issues. That's when the doctor told me it was ectopic and would have to be terminated. Keep in mind that as a christian I have always been strongly against abortion, but in a situation like this you really have no choice. It took a long time for me to come to the understanding that I only did what was absolutely necessary, but truthfully it still hurts to think about it three years later.
To Lose A Child
To find out you have another child on th way
The love and attachment are there from the very first day.
You assume once again everything is fine,
Then one day the doctor says it's the end of the line.
It's all wrong, nothing is right,
You've just been blinded but not by light.
Ha has to terminate it before it kills you.
You're totall against it, but what can you do?
You have other children who need you there.
They depend on you and need your care.
It gets easier as time goes by,
But the baby's always there in your mind's eye.
It's the hardest thing you'll ever go through,
But know that God is there to hold you.
