This Is My Life



This Is My Life

Walking together through every place.
Sharing the same emotions,
But you've never seen my face.
I hear every word when you speak.
I feel every beat of your heart.
And even though we've never met,
We're never far apart.

Then one day you noticed,
That there's a life inside of you.
You ask my father exactly what he thinks,
And he tells you what you must do.
So the three of us go to see,
This man dressed in white.
He explains every option,
But you decide to end my life.

Why must you do this?
It really isn't fair.
You never loved me.
You never cared.

I could have been someone,
But this is my last day.
And even though you do not love me,
I have one more thing to say.

I love you mommy.
Just give me one more try.
I want to live mommy.
I do not want to die.

This is my life.
