How Could I?

How could I have been so stupid? How could I choose “love of a man” over you?
How could I not know that I would spend the rest of my life wondering what you look like? How could I know that your father would not even remember your sacrifice? How could I have changed what I did? How could I look in the mirror and not realize that what I was going to do was the most horrific choice I had ever made? How could I not allow love for you to strengthen me to walk away from that decision? How could you ever forgive me!
