Abortion Poem

Heartfelt Poem Of A Father's Apology

I met my girlfriend at a young age. I was 23 and she was 19. For two year we dated and had the typical young person relationship filled with drama. At about a year and four months in the relationship I got the call that no one ever expects. She was pregnant, I'm not going to get into any details for her sake because while she looks at me and tells me she doesn't want me, I still care for her. I've never written a poem before, but for once in my life I wanted to express my heart.

Letter To My Unborn Baby


Published by Family Friend Poems July 2013 with permission of the Author.

To my unborn baby,

Selfishness cannot even explain
The emotion that turned into pain.
Mommy and I were just not ready,
Especially with our relationship so unsteady.

My unborn baby, please forgive me,
For now I'm beginning to see.
Hiding from the pain of my decision
Only puts me into depression.

I tried to be strong for mommy.
It's not your fault.
She and I were not meant to be.
You are my greatest achievement I'll never get to see.

Boy or girl, it doesn't matter, I love you just the same,
It happened so fast you were never given a name.
For all I have to remember you by is my heart and the gift I gave your mommy for Mother's Day.
Just know the thought of you will never go away.

Your eyes that will never see,
Your heart that will never beat.
You will always be a part of me,
From your head down to your feet.

For the tears you will never get to cry, 
Worry not my little one.
I've shed enough tears for you and I,
For what I did to you cannot be undone.

Please forgive me, my unborn child,
For I cannot forgive myself.
I've learned from this, and trust me beautiful,
I will never repeat this mistake.

Rest your little head, my child.
Watch over me and mommy from heaven.
For though our relationship got a little wild,
Know you will never be forgotten.

I can't wait for the day when we finally meet,
And I can see you stand on your own two feet.
I'll dream of what your first words will be,
Before you speak them please wait for me.

I have to go now, but know I'll talk to you every night,
For now my unborn baby,
Please sleep tight.

To my unborn baby,
I'll love you forever.

Your father.
