Why Can'T It Be Me? - Poem by Carrie Hutto

You speak the words I long to speak,
"I'm pregnant" sounds so simple so sweet.
Fragile miracle growing inside,
Can't replace the love for a child.
Aching back and swollen feet,
Sleepless nights & mood swings.
You don't want it but I do,
Why can't it be me instead of you?
It was a mistake an accident,
Babies don't come by coincidence.
His plan is perfect and so is this life,
You can't erase it or try to hide.
Why can't it be me instead of you?
Is it punishment for things that I do?
I pray and plead oh please let it be me,
But His plan is unknown and can't be seen.
One day I will speak the words that I seek,
As His plan comes together I'll weep.
To speak the words so simple so sweet,
"I'm Pregnant" and it will finally be me.
