A Prayer For Baby
Never to have known you, but to have loved you,
Never to have held you, the way mother do.

With you I bury my hopes and dreams
For an unknown child I’d never seen.

But also I bury the love in my heart
And the sadness of knowing that we must part.

And pray to God to do for you
All the things that I would like to do.

And to keep my baby safe from harm
To laugh and frolic in springtime’s arms
