    I was pregnant with his child about two years ago
    he never knew because he wa baout to leave and i didn't want to tell him
    I told him this past january and well
    He didn't repond lke I thought he would
    i miscarried and
    he sounded relieved
    He would have me to be believe
    It was out of concern for me
    But I ask questions in my mind
    I love him
    But I need to know
    What would he have done if
    I had have had that child
    SO I ask what would he have done
    And his answer
    I still haven't heard it yet

    And to keep it on the real ..chances are ..you won't hear it,
    but it's better that his silence is the most honest answer.

    Wow... I'm sorry you miscarried, and I would have to agree that sometimes silence speaks loud and clear. But on the other hand, fear of the unknown is enough to silence a person.

    How Painful. I am sorry.

    Perhaps it is best to leave the past alone. Not every truth will fill a gap.

    um poet

    i think you answered you own question

    especially based on him being "relieved" about the tragic news
    keep your head up and don't waste time on people who will waste your time
