The Emptiness of a Life Lost

The Emptiness of a Life Lost
This poem, “The Emptiness of a Life Lost,” is for all women and families mourning an abortion. Help is available and people do care.

Arms that ache empty
A heart never filled
Laughter is deafened
Life’s spark has chilled

The guilt overwhelms
Sadness dulls over time
What you would give to laugh
It would be truly divine

Arms are open here
Hearts aching, too
For the love you gave away
The tiny life that was true

May you find joy
A happiness so sure
In the love and forgiveness
Between you and the Lord.
