Bye Bye Baby: Mom’s Perspective

Bye sweet baby
Bye bye
Or would it be better to wait out this trial?
Birth you completely
Have you live for the littlest while?
Months and months more of mutual agony
To have you suffer outside of me?
No, I’m sorry
There’s no need to make you cry baby
Bye sweet baby
Bye bye
