A Cry From The Heart


Mommy keep me safe, mommy keep me warm

Handle me with care, mommy help me to form.

I am ten weeks old, and I know the time will come
when you will give birth to me.

The gift you gave to me are a pair of bright blue eyes
So some day I will see you smile and love me.

I’ve already got my arms and a little podgy nose,
And at the end of my feet I’ve got five little toes.

I look forward to my life, ice cream and slimy snails,
teddy bears and little fairy tales.

Going for walks in the park
Running home before it’s dark.
And being tucked into bed with a kiss.

Where are we going today?
Am I in a boat or bus?

Why are we lying down?
Being drawn on four wheels?

And we go through the door
and there’s people dressed in green.
Everything seems so strange and so clean.

Mommy if they hurt you just let out a scream
and I know someone will come to help you and me.

Mommy what’s going on I am starting to cry
Come quickly they are forcing me to die.

They are killing me mommy, they are pulling me apart
My arms and my legs and now they’re at my heart.

And I won’t see the sky, or the grass or the trees.
and I won’t see the moon, or feel the breeze.

I love you mommy dear, you know I really do
But I only wish you could have loved me too!


  1. ...motherhood is an important thing.

  2. Oh no...Victor, this went the wrong way. Heartbreaking.

    I was once driving down the road with a non-religious friend. We passed a clinic where protestors had gathered. One was a woman standing apart from the rest. The others' signs were angry. Her sign said simply, "Jesus forgives and heals."

    The grace in that sign brought my friend very near to tears.

    1. Yes, Sandi. The lyrics may have gone "the wrong way" at the end. But they were/are effective. As a result of this song, over twenty women decided not to have an abortion. They wrote to Father Francis at the time. Listen to his explanation at the end of the recording.

      God bless.

  3. Reading this broke my heart, Victor. Prayers for all the mommies and babies.

    1. I join you in prayers, Martha. May God forgive and heal - as Sandi said above.

      God bless.

  4. While watching this before I wept. Unashamedly, I'm doing so now. I wish this could be posted in every OB/GYN office and "clinic."

    1. There's nothing wrong with weeping for the right reasons, Mevely. We need to pray more for all the lives that are ended early.

      Fr Francis has raised over £1m over the years for charity through singing and writing books.

      God bless always.

  5. This is a very moving post. I cannot add a thing to it.

    Back to our conversation a few days ago about leaving comments, I turned off the comment moderator on my blog. It should have been allowing your comments but sometimes Blogger is a mystery. We'll see if this makes a difference.

    1. Thank you, Barbara.

      I have known Father Francis for many years. He sings in malls and shopping centres to raise money for charity. I have put some of his songs here:

      I'll put a comment on your Blog now to see if it publishes.

      God bless you, my friend.

    1. Thank you Jack. I pray you and Sherry are well.

      God bless.

  7. My heart aches for the babies, and for the women who truly thought they had no other choice.



God bless you.
