A letter to my mother!!

Dear mom,
I have a quick confession, I need to come clean with you,
I made some bad decisions and I dont know what to do.
Now what I have to tell you, may cause you to get mad,
But please dont give up on me, and please just dont be sad.
As you know I have been dating but you dont know just who,
But I wish I could go back in time, many things I wouldnt do,
If I could take it all back I would, but that just cant be,
And now I have to suffer with the consequences facing me.
I have been sleeping with this guy, who I thought was being true,
But he had girls all around town, so far I can confirm two.
He told me that he loved me, and he would only be with me,
And now I have to suffer with this pain and misery.
I went for a check up the other day and got some bad news,
After hearing what the doctor said I am singing the blues.
I was told that I am dying, as he infected me with AIDS,
He played me like a game of cards and I'm the ace of spades.
But thats not the only thing they told me when I went,
I am currently with child, mom they said I am pregnant.
So now I am sitting here faced with a choice I have to make ,
Should I continue with this pregnancy, mom I made a big mistake.
I know I'm only 16, but I thought I was mature,
I wanted to always be that little girl you could adore.
And now I have let you down, and your heart wont be the same,
But dont forget its not you, I am the only one to blame.
I wish I could do things different, and I could be right there,
But I have to tell you mom, life just isn't fair.
I cant take this life I am living knowing I am going to die,
So unfortunately mom, I have to say goodbye.
By the time you finish reading this, I will be at rest,
I couldnt stay alive to face you, could not hold that on my chest.
I know that you are crying now but I did what I had to do,
I hope you will always remember me, as I watch over you.
I love you!!
