You’re the father of a beautiful, unique, growing being.
She has been growing and developing for almost 22 weeks now, I can feel her stir inside me.
One day soon, she will come out into the world, and you won’t be there to welcome her.
Then, one day later, she will ask of you, and you won’t be there to answer.
I wish I were brave enough to tell you that she’s coming, that she’s perfect, amazing and beautiful, and that we made her.
I wish I were confident of your response, I wish you could love her, and me, as a father could.
But you don’t know, and only I can tell you, or her, and I’ll keep it that way.
Get in touch and help me break the news, be calm, and loving, and save me from the solitude of waiting to meet her. She’ll come soon, and Love you more than any other.
And I’ll Love You too
How could I ever expect you to deny all others when you’ve made no inclination to do so, so I don’t, and you won’t.
The pain of you bringing her another mother would be too much, a brother, a sister, a family a separate life.
This is easier without you, you’re so far away, and so distant
But it doesn’t stop me wanting, thinking ….. wishing
Thank You, for granting me the wish of Motherhood. Thank You, for planting the seed that is my beautiful daughter Thank You, for staying away
I Ask You, to greet her with Love, on the day she meets you, and I step aside
I’ll never give her up
