THE SWEETEST CHOICE

In life we all make choices,
We can take or we can give;
The sweetest choice I ever made,
Was for my child to live.

The decision to give life to you,
Was an easy one to make;
Just as God had created you,
You weren't someone's mistake.

For every life has purpose,
A plan from the very start;
Though I could not keep you in my arms,
I can keep you in my heart.

The parents that God gave to you,
Are the ones who will help you grow;
They will love, nurture and cherish you,
But one thing you must know...

We'll always be part of each other,
For our hearts are tied for all time;
The sweetest choice I ever made,
Was to give life to you, child of mine.
