Have To Let You Go
test says you are growing there,
And into space I sit and stare.
This is not the way it was supposed to be,
This is not the result I wanted
Please understand why I can't let you grow.
why I have to let you go.
You are the result of a bad choice I made,
And in my body this conception invades.
Your father and I are married
But not to each other, now can you see?
This choice I have

The procedure, they say, won't take very long.

I pray that one day I will
I love you, my child, I need you to know,
I am just
so sorry that I have to let you go.
