    You wonder why my eyes are red
    With glass-like edged tears
    If only you knew what I see
    When I look through the years ahead of me
    I see a pain
    With much to go around
    I wonder why I've chosen you
    to join me on the ground

    Instead of bearing sorrows sack
    That simply weighs you down
    A sorrow I've made to exist
    A pool to let you drown
    You could be free
    And set your wings
    To soar above the sky
    I've chose a fate for you
    That's why you see me cry

    Dedicated to my aborted child and too all the people that always say "Why do you always cry"

    Such decisions are difficult to make, and I would imagine, difficult to think about afterwards. You could feel the ache here.

    this reminds me of a famous poem
    called "The Mother" by Gwendolyn Brooks
    any poem dealing with the loss
    of a child no matter the event
    is always heart wrenching...

    thanks for sharing
