of our little babies.
Mark & Megan
Megan was a quiet girl and a studious
young woman she was,
and never had dated till Mark came along
which changed her life for what she thought was a plus.
They began to date in her Junior year of high school
which caused her grades to take a dive,
for now she had more than just studies to do
she had a definite change of direction in her life.
No, they didn’t drink and do drugs
but they liked to kiss and hug and certainly make out,
going much too far one night and now a baby was on the way
and a situation that they would talk about the next day.
A couple of months went by and they talked it over between the two of them
and agreed to abort this little soul,
so Mark drove Megan to an out of town clinic to have it done
so that her parents and friends would never know.
Mark graduated a few months later
and left with the Army and was shipped to Viet Nam,
leaving Megan behind struggling with her guilt
and her friends and family wondering why she was never happy now or calm.
Mark died in Viet Nam
leaving Megan so alone and so sad,
how she wished now she wouldn’t have aborted their only son
because she felt that he would have been exactly like his dad.
Megan chose to never marry and
she lived a life of guilt and sadness to,
until the day she accepted Jesus’ love and forgiveness
and now she is helping other girls to choose life as now she would do.
