The Reason for My Tears

Walking down the bustling center city street
It seems no one has time any more, not even to greet 
When then I notice this woman who is just off to the side
Just sitting on a nearby stoop as she cried and cried and cried

I slowed down my pace and looked over her way
Then I asked the Lord for something to say
With everyone just walking as if she wasn't even there
I had to say something for this just didn't seem fair

Standing next to the stoop and along her side
Slowly her head looked up, her swollen eyes opened wide
And just when I was about to speak
She said this to me in a voice so trembling, so weak

"Though Unborn, the Lord has set me about to be free
To stop the abortion of the millions of babies who are just like me
But this world has no time for me, not even for my tears
And for this world, I am now just realizing my own worst fears"

Suddenly Her hair began to shimmer with the bright summer light
Going from a dark colored brown to a glorious flowing white
And as I shook my head and double blinked my eyes
She floated up like a cloud into these now cloudy skies

Yet, no one even noticed as they all just kept on walking
Some just looking straight ahead and others in the midst of talking
But all of them missed it, the whole point once again
For this Angels tears were for all these woman and men
