You walked into that bleak, white room,
And I was there inside your womb.
Blissfully secure… relaxed and unaware.
Voices, I heard hard footsteps,
Then, at the sound of your voice, I lept
Inside my growing heart. I was a work of art.
I clung to your melodious life,
As mine was being wrought inside.
And you were all my world… I needed nothing more.
I felt you recline, as if to sleep,
So comfortable, my dreams would be deep.
But I began to feel so weak… as never before.
Pain.. I didn’t know its ways
Until it grasped me in a daze.
And wrenched my world apart… away from your beating heart.
I don’t think you realized
Your choice meant death for another life,
But though I needed you… you chose your right to choose.
I needed you so desperately.
But you didn’t want to care for me.
