In deep gratitude and respect for the Glasgow 40 Days for Life vigil participants
To a Saved Baby
The first time I looked on your tiny wee face
I was glad I’s encouraged to finish the race
And allow you to live, instead of destroy
The sweet little girl who has brought me such joy.
My future seemed hopeless that day in the past
With so many problems, unending and vast;
I couldn’t face having a baby and so
The only solution seemed you’d have to go.
I booked my appointment, but outside the gate,
Almost as if they were lying in wait
For me to arrive, were a group deep in prayer,
Something I didn’t expect to be there.
They gave me a card with a number to ring
If I felt I would like to discuss anything,
When I came out I spoke to the girl once again,
She offered me help and that moment was when
The first ray of hope for my future was sown
As I realised that I was no longer alone.
I decided to keep you, and though still afraid,
My worries eventually started to fade.
And now you are here, though my life might be hard,
With love and devotion to you it is starred.
