He was left, wrapped, in a blanket,
A note, was left near by,
Somewhere, a young mother cries,
For reasons, no one, knows why.

Precious,
As a rose bud, blooming in June,
Left alone,
As the brightest, of full moons.

In a hospital, fighting for life,
God's greatest gift, must survive,
As he searches, for the warmth,
A mother denied.

If only, I knew his name,
And was able, to suffer his pain,
I would, let him sleep, gently silent,
As I cry away, his obvious chains.

Tears, oh Tears,
Streaming down, my eyes,
Save some, for my tomorrow,
So I may cry, away his sorrows.

William,

The poem is beautiful with much feeling. I'm glad that, being a policeman, you yet have much compassion. So many people are hardened by seeing and/or knowing too much.

I would add 'ed' to abandon in your title as the mother already did the deed but the poem is perfect :)! I hope the infant survived. Did he?

This peom definately made me tear up and also made me angry at the way someone could leave such a defenless life. I hope he is safe and taken care of now.

Disgusting - if only more people knew that there is legislation now that will protect "mothers" from criminal charges for abandoning their babes at hospital doors! Each time I hear this story, I wish that they had placed the child in my hands - so many desperately want to nurture , there is NO excuse for this! Thank you for writing on behalf of these defenseless innocents!
