Eulogy for an Unborn Baby

Little fingers,

Little toes,

Only God who made you knows

Why you’re born into a world

That hates you.

Tiny eyes

With unshed tears

Whether you live days or years

The world of men will try

To legislate you



All alone

Though you call a womb your home

A burden to the one

Who now sustains you

Nestled near

the faithless heart

Waiting the day you depart

Sharing blood with one

Who seeks to shed yours

Cast out

By the world of men

A victim of their vice and sin

You’ll find a reason

For the life that fled you

In the mind of God above

You are the object of great love

So you could live,

He gave His life blood

For you.
