Poem From Perspective Of My Unborn Baby

After my abortion earlier this year, I found it hard to come to terms with my feelings of doubt and regret. I decided to write this poem from the perspective of my unborn baby. I find a lot of comfort in this poem, as I know I will meet my tiny baby one day; this is not the end.

I am so sorry for all the pain you are feeling, and if I could, I'd give you a big hug and try to make you feel better. I know you must have been scared and felt like there was no way out....

Don't Forget That I Was Here

default ©

Published: November 2014

I know that I can't stay here,
but don't be sad for me.
I'm at peace with this decision;
I just wish that you could see.

Treasure moments while I'm gone.
Don't be sad that I am leaving.
We'll be together one day.
Till then, just keep believing.

I know days go so slowly,
But understand it's not the end.
You know I'm watching over you, 
You feel the comfort that I send.

Don't forget that I was here,
You'll never be alone.
The time will come eventually,
And then I will come home.

I hope you find your happiness.
As days go by you'll see,
Remember, though we've said goodbye,
It's not the end for me.

I'm in tears. I am approaching the first year marking my abortion. And I just can't help but to feel lost and unhappy. I chose to end a pregnancy after finding out I was pregnant 9 months after having my son. There's nowhere to turn for relief and reading comments on websites telling me I was selfish and a killer as if it doesn't kill me inside every day. Reading this and the following comments I sensed this might be the place to confess my secret.

I had an abortion on Wednesday at nine weeks and four days. This was one of the hardest decisions I've had to make, and I just want my baby to know that I truly had love for it and I wish that things could've had a different outcome. I hope you can forgive me one day, baby.

I have just started with my abortion pills, and I can't stop crying. I heard my baby's heart beat yesterday, and it keeps on playing in my head. I really wish that I could tell my baby that I really, really wanted to keep it. This has been the most difficult decision I had to make, and I wish I could fix it. My baby needs to know that I love it with all my heart and I'll never be able to forget this day. I wanted to hold it in my hands and be grateful to God. My perspective about life has completely changed. I'm no longer the person I was. I have become way more gentle and loving. Although I wish I could give all this love to my baby. :( I just want my unborn baby to know that the decision I made was influenced by the society we live in. But that doesn't mean that I don't love you. I love you so much. I'm sorry for all the pain caused to you and how I wish I could bring you back. I'm sorry, baby. Please forgive me.

I am so sorry for all the pain you are feeling, and if I could, I'd give you a big hug and try to make you feel better. I know you must have been scared and felt like there was no way out. But if you ever find yourself stuck again and if you every feel like abortion is the only way out just remember YOU DONT HAVE TO DO IT. There are so many people who will carry you through the tough times and will be by your side and help you have your baby. Also God forgives you and will forgive you a thousand times over because he loves you. He loves you so much and he will never turn his back on you no matter what! Right now he is holding your baby in his arms protecting your sweet child until you are in heaven and can hold your baby yourself. I know we live in a crazy world, and I know there are more bad days than good, but just remember God loves you, and there are so many people who are willing to support you with all the love and resources you need to heal and never have to make that decision again.

Thank you for your beautiful poem and the small comfort it has brought to me.
I am 20 years old and aborted my 5 week old baby a bit over a month ago. It was a very traumatic experience, but the right choice.
Losing an unborn child is the hardest thing I have ever had to face and my additional complications have only enhanced the trauma. But one thing that has brought me peace is knowing that it's all over now and my child is in heaven. While on the morphine, the image of my small little baby lying peacefully on a bed of flowers kept passing through my mind. I love my child so much and I will always be his/her mother. I hope my baby is at peace and feels my love. I will never forget my baby and it helps me to think of him/her as my angel. I am not religious but I feel my child's presence with me always and know that they want me to be happy and know that I am not alone.
Your poem touched me and calmed me while I lie here in my bed with a heating pad, crying. I wish i could hug every women who's gone through this pain and tell them that they are not alone. We're all connected by our losses and our little angels are watching over us too.

Your story really touched me. I aborted two days ago, and I've never felt so empty and broken. I'm only 15. I'm crying every day, and it's so hard to move on. I love the man that gave me that baby, although he doesn't understand it. Feeling helpless sucks and feeling stuck is even worse. I hate my body and what I did. I might never forgive myself, but I hope my unborn baby does. I already miss him or her, although I never met them. I hope someday I can move on and be able to live life again and love again.
