You opened up, revealing truths
Heard to other ears only once before
On hearing of my bodies rejection
You spoke of yours.
My heart pained for the lost soul
Unexpected and unplanned though it was
Wishing you’d had a choice
The freedom of your own will.
How thankless it can be to be a woman
To carry a body only for the life to
Leave before the growing has truly begun
Marking you as mother of none.
A now spoken bond between two friends
Undesired but nonetheless worthy
Wanted or unwanted, the children are gone
It is never easy.
