    {FROM A FEMALE PERSPECTIVE}

    {helping a friend to deal with her agony...part of the healing process, after abortions, is to write about your feelings}

    the morning glories didn't bloom today
    ...like they did yesterday

    the sun didn't shine
    the wind didn't speak in whispers
    only i could hear

    turbulent seas surround me
    darkness overcomes me
    how could i ever ask GOD to forgive me

    in the wee hours
    when the silence is loudest
    i wallow in my tears
    ...crying seven years of torment and regret

    GOD, i can't get over this
    {sigh}

    WHY

    i ask myself
    seven years since peace gave me relief
    ...as grief fills me

    WHY

    i cry out at night
    when sorrow over takes me
    when the peace of sleep escapes me

    WHY

    of all the things i could have done
    ...should have done
    did i give up my daughter
    {son}

    WHY.

    partly cloudy
    covers my sunshiny day
    with chances of rain swells
    like hurricane waves off a stormy sea

    'tis the forecast of me

    it ain't easy...
    when somber days
    rain grief
    where
    sorrow
    is
    all i can see

    it ain't easy

    traveling the high road
    when
    pain
    and
    suffering
    fills my way

    no,
    it ain't easy...
    to face heartache
    and wake
    another day
    and
    smile
    like
    heartache didn't come my way

    no, it ain't easy...

    should i take another life...
    my life.:(

    FATHER, take this cup from before me.

    in dealing with her...

    i've come to a better understanding of the after-effects of abortions on women. they think they know what they want...however, they find that they can't cope with the consequences of their decisions.

    THANKS for reading me.
