Best For You

Location

I want you to know that I love you so,
I am sorry that I didn’t keep you,
I wanted you to have a better life, you know.
I could’ve given you love and happiness.
 
Only a mother can bear the pain that I feel,
The guilt that lies inside the depths of my soul,
I am no longer a mother bearing a child to be born.
I am a murderess who neglected her duties.
 
This is not how I pictured or wanted it,
I wanted to raise my children with a father and in wedlock,
But you came at the most inopportune time.
I thought less of me and of only what was best for you.
 
You will always still be mine, whether inside me or not,
I love you, my dear darling, with all my heart.
