The Heartbeat of My Life

Mama don't take my breath away My only chance to love and play I know you're hurting I can tell Mama don't give up on me as well Mama I long to touch your face Feel the beauty of your grace I dream one day to see you smile Mama don't ever say Goodbye

Emotional in every respect. The awareness of a close to term unborn infant. You decided and gave this precious being, a voice. A beautiful voice. Sensitive, Arturo. (my impression)

I can relate to this piece with a tender heart knowing that all things are possible with God even when they are not planned. There are so many couples who are unable to have children who would love to adopt an unwanted child. Your poem is beautifully written Arturo. : ) xxoo

-- You're "the Heartbeat of my Life" Mama!! These words touch me deeply. Your entire poem tugs at the heartstrings. So sad thinking about someone ending an innocent life, before it has even begun. ~ Brandy
