Where Are You Now

Where are you now, my baby girl
You came into my life and changed my world
I had you in secret because no one could know
To whom you belonged
Whose seed was sown
You had to be hidden away
So no one would find out
My terrible secret
The one that kills me now
I don't know where you are
I don't know where you've gone
I don't know how in this world
I will be able to press on
You have been gone so many years
You are an adult now
Unaware of your secret 
Not knowing my vow
My baby girl I miss you! 
Even though I have never seen your eyes
They took you straight from me
And told me it was wise
I wish I could have held you
Before they took you away
No matter what I will find you
And with me always you will stay


I have gotten so many comments to this end and I wanted to ease everyone's mind that this is not autobiographical. I wanted to sincerely thank everyone for their heartfelt concern, but there is no need. This is (for me) only a poem and has no bearing in real life. Thanks so much everyone!

    Great write and quite creative considering it's not from personal expeirience, though I am sure there will be some out there who will relate to it.

    From my interpertation of this one of a youung lady having a child when she is not ready to take on the responsibility of motherhood and gives the child away, I can feel the person's pain and the constant feelings left of wondering forever about the child..Enjoyed reading the emotive and expressive work that you have penned..I hope just a work and not your life for that would have been painful..Thanks for your visit to my work..Your review was uplifting.Sara

    A story shared by more people than we realize. You have expressed these feelings in a very heart felt way. I am moved by your words and hope that one day you will be reunited with your child. Most importantly I pray she has been loved and appreciated within the family that she was placed with. Also I hope you now have children that you have raised.

    A sad write that reminds me of Paul Simon's song "Mother and Child Reunion". Good one.

    This is very sad, April..if this is reality, and I feel that it is, but I've been wrong before..I can only say, don't ever give up hope. I bet you she's looking for you also! Miracles still happen so don't give up! By the way, this is a well written Rhyme. Thanks for reading my poem. Always, Annalise

    This seems straight forward, but is so sad it's deep. These are hard to dominant on. I like the flow and rhyme, it's just so sad. Thanks for your comment.
