Patti Morelli

Author        Poet

You don't want our child

How could this be

Our child is a gift of love

A gift given to you and me

It saddens my soul

And it hurts my pride

For you are not the man

I thought you were inside

The years we spent together

All those dreams we planned

Were all lies and deception

This now I understand

Finally, I see who you really are

For now I have nothing to fear

My fear was losing your love

A love that was never there
