today you kissed your baby joyfully.And as you walked away with her,
I am happy for the baby, yet,
inside I`m aching miserably.
I want to plead as you go by,
"does no-one want a child of three"?
And as I watched you take her out
I knew it wasn`t my turn yet.
I recognized you from last year!
I knew I`d seen your face before
But you came for a second babe.
Does no-one want a child of four ?
I saw you meet your child today,
but this time there was something new.
A nurse came in and took MY hand,
Can this be true ?I`m almost six !
And there are infant here you see?
But then you kissed me and I knew,
the child you chose this time was me.
