Barren

By: Toni Havens

To the child I may never know…

Your mom and dad love you so.

Together we have built a home, saving you the coziest room.

We’ve given you a name and collected a few small things.

To the child I may never know…

In so many day dreams I have watched you grow.

I have felt your small hand upon my face, your unconditional love in a warm embrace.

Heard daddy reading you Green Eggs and Ham you giggled at that silly Sam I Am.

To the child I may never know…

So many hours we’ve spent wishing for you.

Talking, caring and planning for you.

It gets harder every year, waiting, hoping.

Then disappointing.

To the child I may never know…

For some reason in my womb you will not grow.

But just so know your mommy and daddy love you so.
