I Didn't Want To Leave You

©

Published: February 2014

I didn't want to leave you.
I wanted to stay,
but my mother said I had to go,
and so she took me away.

Our baby lives inside me.
She grows a little each day.
Though I'm too young,
I love our daughter either way.

The house that I stay in
is too far away from you.
Our baby needs a father near,
but I don't know what to do.

If only you could come here.
I miss you a lot.
My mother won't allow it,
but who says we'll get caught?

I'm six months pregnant,
and I'm really starting to show.
Even at my new school,
everyone will know.

Each day she grows bigger,
and her due date nears,
and without you with me,
who will soothe my biggest fears?

I didn't want to leave you ,
and my goodbyes weren't classy,
but I really wish you were here.

When I found out I was pregnant, I never thought keeping you was ideal because of the fear of unknown. Abortion is a decision you can't take over night. I kept delaying, not because I couldn't do it, but because my heart didn't agree. I knew I was carrying a little someone who knew nothing and had no sin. Who was I to take away her life? I knew bringing you home would make my family and boyfriend change, but I still went ahead. Today, all the pain I have felt is nothing compared to the joy I have of listening to your heartbeat and kicks throughout the night.
