A Payer for Baby

A Prayer For Baby

Never to have known you,
but to have loved you.

Never to have held you,
the way mothers do.
With you I bury my hopes and dreams
For an unknown child I'd never seen.

But also I bury the love in my heart
And the sadness of knowing we must part.

And I pray to God to do for you
All the things that I would like to do.

And to keep my baby safe from harm
To laugh and frolic in springtime's arms.
