A child -our child-

November 16, 2007
By Courtney Allen, Augusta, ME

You cannot now but be afraid
Of all that you might lose
And curse the curcumstances
that force you to chose.
You are to young,
A child yourself,
As am I and yet,
We have a child between us.

This child -our child-
has no one else
To be his only father.
Others may be guardians
But you can be no other.
Everything we've wanted turns
To what we must accept.
I do not ask to live with you
or ever be your wife;
Only that you share the gift
And burden of a life.
