IF ONLY I HAD KNOWN
by Terry McDermott
I really did not have a clue,
Would not have given up baby blue.
Never dreamed she was a life,
Could have ended years of strife.
If I had known I carried a baby
I would have at least said, “Maybe”.
A child I never knew,
The information was not true.
If I could have made an informed choice, I would still be listening to her voice.
Years of tears for a wrong decision,
Given the truth I would have had a vision.
I lift up all my pain and loss,
I gently set it at the foot of the cross.
The Lord has mended my broken heart,
I am blessed with a brand new start.
So now I reach out to you,
With the love of Faithful and True.
