A Poem for Almost Mothers

As I sit in this room today,

I see a bright futures of

Doctors that will find a cure for cancer

Lawyers that will participate in the trial of the century

Military officers that will lead soldiers into the great victory

Teachers that will teach the future great minds

Politicians that will become Presidents and Senators

World record setters

Travelers and leaders in world peace

Entrepreneurs and business people

College professors

Religious leaders

Actors and models

Poets and novelists

But we will never be those great things

We will never learn how to ride a bike

Or have a first day of school

Or have our first kiss

Or hold our first child

Or get wrinkles and gray hair

We will never have any of that

Because we died before our lives even began

We are miscarriages

But we loved our mothers from our very first heartbeat

To our very last

Those were the best times of my life

They were the only times of my life

But I loved every last second

Our world
