Fatherhood Without My Baby

Fatherhood without My Baby

The decision was made – the procedure was done.

Where there were three – there is now only one.

A choice for her to make – without asking me.

She had a voice – I had no chance to disagree.

No baby to hold close to my heart.

Now we will spend a lifetime apart.

The pain so intense – I can barely breathe.

I thought our life together was guaranteed.

Know Daddy loves you wherever you are.

I’ll think about you every night and wish upon a star.

You will be my first child for the rest of my days.

And every day I’ll show you love in a thousand ways.
