I was born to a mommy just as sweet as can be
she kept me warm and safe
held me close, she never stopped loving me
"when I grow up Im going to be just like you"
have a baby to love
feel the other side of that special bond so true
but the world works in mysterious ways
good people will lose
while terrible mothers have their babies taken away
a womb destroyed by cancer given to me at birth
never given a chance
to experience the natural way of things here on earth
"so what","no biggie", "you'll make a great aunt" they say
your brothers having a baby
come on, let's celebrate this truly is a joyous day!
what's wrong? aren't you happy? there's so much planning to do
the baby will be here soon
we're all so happy and you should be too
mommy's planning a baby shower for my sister in law
she'll be a grandma soon
why should she lose out because of my serious flaw
but she doesn't understand why I'm so blue
having to watch mommy
doing all the things she should be doing with you
I try so hard to put on a happy face rather than pout
but I'm just not strong enough
when its tearing me up from the inside out
can I ever stop mourning the baby that will never be
my broken womb
forever destitute, childless and empty.
