You Were Inside Me

©

Published: April 2011

You were inside me but only for a while.
Only in my dreams do I embrace your smile.

In my thoughts I see you, my bleeding heart is torn
for my darling little baby who would never be born.

Though my arms ache to hold you, my grief so hard to bear.
The pain you must have felt that day, my pain cannot compare.

If I could live my life again, there would be one less regret.
The day I took my baby's life, the day I can't forget.

I have gone through the abortion and I regret all the time. My parents forced me to do it so I had to. Not a day goes by that I don't think about it. I hope you women never go through it because it's not a good feeling at all.

OMG. I'm sure your head was pretty messed up at that time, and I know you really, really feel regret. Don't worry, if you're truly sorry, God will forgive. I am, however, against abortion and I hope I always will be. May the baby rest in peace :) the baby knows you'll always love it!
