Goodbye Mother Dear - Poem by Morney Wilson

Mother, mother, mother dear,
Can you hold me close, can you hold me near?
Mother, mother, oh mother dear,
Will you listen, listen to my words of fear?

Mother, I am inside your womb.
Mother, you hold the key.
Mother, is it too late, too soon?
Mother, what do you see?

I hear your heart beat, beat, beat,
It comforts me when I am asleep.
I feel your warmth, I feel your heat,
But mother dear, I feel you weep.

Mother, I am so full of fear.
Mother, I see it in your tear.
Mother, I know you cry and why.
Mother, I know we must say goodbye.

(if only you could let me grow
my love to you then i could show
but that i know cannot be so
the time has come for me to go)

Mother, mother, mother dear,
Do not feel guilt, do not feel fear.
Mother, mother, oh mother dear,
For a while, you held me near.

    This poem is well written, I'm sorry for my 'blissful' beleifs against it's message.
    At first glance I thought this was a pro-life poem...I guess the ending just shocked me a bit. (Report) Reply

    It's so sad any mother could put their own child's life to death.
    Inside or outside of their womb...whats the difference.
