WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN
I know my voice is small right now,
You don't even know that I'm here.
But I know that will all change soon,
and you will be glad that I'm near.
I'm only a couple of weeks old now,
and I'm tiny as can be.
But I know deep in my still forming heart
that will change once you can see me.
I really don't mean to make you so sick
I would stop it if I could.
He said to ask the doctor what's wrong.
I really think that you should.
Well, that nice man told you about me today.
But you didn't laugh, you only cried.
I thought that you would be happy with me.
If you're not, please tell me why.
You were so quiet on the way home.
Why donít you tell Daddy about me?
I just know that he could love me a lot.
Why don't you tell him, and then you'll see.
I'm growing stronger every day.
And I'm getting bigger too!
Hands, feet, eyes and ears,
Of each, I already have two.
Today the doctor said I'm three months along.
But I can tell you're still so sad.
Let's go home and tell my Daddy right now.
I really don't think he'd be mad.
Mommy, where are we going today?
This is a brand new place.
I wish I could tell what mood you're in.
I wish I could see your face.
What are we going to do here today?
Will these new doctors take good care of me?
That light is awful bright out there.
Tell me Mommy, because I can't see.
Mommy, why are you crying again?
Did I do something wrong?
Mommy, what were they talking about,
when they said, "This won't take long."?
Mommy....I don't feel so good.
I think it's time to go.
I wish you'd let me stay a while,
I wish you'd let me grow.
I could have been something great.
You would have been so proud of me.
I could have been anything I want,
but now that will never be.
Did I really make your life so bad?
Don't you wonder if I'm a girl or a boy?
And you never told my Daddy about me.
So from him, You've robbed his joy.
Well, I'm going to have to leave you now.
These nice people are taking me away.
I'll have a brand new Daddy soon.
And he'll love me forever and a day.
So don't you worry about me anymore.
They said I'll be in good hands.
I'm going to see my brand new home,
and someone who I know understands.
Although you didn't want to know how,
Although you didn't want to know when.
Now I guess we'll never know
just exactly what might have been.
