I posted this on the open poetry forum, but didn't know about this one. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I wrote this poem after having a miscarriage in 1998.
Mommy, why'd you get rid of me?
You were going to be the first person for me to see.
Would I have your smile or maybe your eyes?
Oh! It wouldv'e been such a surprise.
I never got to see you or my dad.
I couldn't have been that bad.
Was I going to be a girl or a boy?
Either way, I wouldv'e brought you joy.
I wouldv'e made you laugh, smile and even cry
But I'm gone now, mommy, why?
Why'd you let me go?
What I look like, you'll never know.
Do you ever think about me?
Your baby, the one you'll never get to see.
Promise me you'll always remember me.
Promise me you'll always love me.
Mommy, why couldn't I have stayed?
If you didn't want me, why was I made?
