He said it wasnít a baby
It was just a seven day overdue period
His words sliced into her heart
And into the core of her dreams
She had believed him when he said he loved her
And talked of the family they would have
Thatís the thing of it he said
Not noticing the tears in her eyes
Someday is not now
And Iím not ready right now
And he walked away
No thought of what they had created
The beauty of a child borne of their love
He tossed the thought away like an old tissue
And she felt the same way
Used and dirtied, then tossed away
Because it wasnít the right time
Because it wasnít

Sue, my friend,
I don't know if this is from a personnel experience or not but I feel the pain of it in your words. I can look into my minds eye and see the tears on your cheek and my arms long to hold you as a friend and tell you all will be ok.

A big hug,
Your friend...Felix
