Sometimes your eyes have been blue,
other times a deep brown
I have seen you in my dreams, and at times could think of little else than our short time together
Behind a closed door
In an ultra sound room
Sometimes we've just talked on the phone, but I still connected with you...
You are the many women who I have had contact with in the place where I work
You are in a pregnancy you did not expect
In a situation that was not your plan
And I am in a job I never thought I could do
Perhaps you have seen those who carry signs and protest aggressively
The distorted frowns of disapproval
That's not me
but that was before I knew you
Before I sat next to you and saw the emptiness in your eyes
Before I heard the desperation in your voice and pleaded with God to let me inside your head
And then I saw your agony
I may have felt sorry for you
I may have cringed at the hopelessness you felt
I may have pleaded with you to try to see beyond your tough circomstances
But I could not judge
Because your hurt was too deep and your need too clear to me
Do I believe that life is precious?
Beyond a shadow of a doubt
Do I believe that a loving Creator thoughtfully formed every part of every human being, born and pre-born?
A million times, yes
We are the crowning creation of a God who greatly desires to be an intimate part of every single one of our lives
God created life and he declared it good - very good
But I will never force you or coerce you
I am pro-you
I am pro-don't make a decision until you know every thing there is to know
I am pro-no regrets
Your baby? - well, I have no doubt that whatever happens, your baby will be okay
YOU, on the other hand need cared for
You need to know that you matter,
You need to look in my eyes and see my heart.
I do not just want to place a check mark next to a statement that I saved another baby
I want to save you from the deepest heart break your heart could ever know.
You can't push rewind.
I'm sorry; I wish you could too...
But you made a choice then,
You are here now
You can do this
You are not alone... and if only for a minute you would hear me, I believe it would change the trajectory of your life completely
I am not them
I am for you
I don't have an agenda
I don't have time for agendas
I do have time for you
I don't want your money
I am not making a political statement
I am not trying to take choice from you
I just want you to choose carefully
Know what you are choosing
And no matter what that choice is
I'll be here
