Save Me

The doctors hush me, 

My mother comforts me.

I am born today,

I feel happy.

 

The teachers reprimand me,

My mother supports me.

My first day of school,

I feel lonely.

 

My father smiles at me,

My mother adorns me.

My very first date,

I feel jumpy.

 

My boyfriend hugs me,

My mother photographs me.

Senior prom night,

I feel lucky.

 

My husband cries for me,

My mother dances with me.

My wedding day,

I feel lovely.

 

My doctors calm me,

My baby screams with me.

My daughter’s birthday.

I feel…

 

Nothing.

 

These days did not happen.

I have not had memories to imagine.

To end my life here,

Is to end the memories then. 

 

Please, save me,

I am just a baby.

I am not a tumor.

I am just a baby.
