A Poem about an Abortion

By anonymous on 21/09/2011
I am 64 now and still grieve the child that I lost. I wrote this poem about it.

When I had my abortion
I was so afraid.
I told my fiance, now my ex-husband-
He said 'get rid of it'-how cruel I thought.
But I was too scared to tell my parents-
Altogether too afraid.
I agreed to terminate-he arranged it all.
But how I've cried to lose that child.
Years later I painted a picture of a girl.
She looks familiar- I called her Poppy.
This I imagine
Is she I lost.
May God forgive me
And may I meet her/him
In heaven above
