Mom...I'm Pregnant
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

“Mom….   I’m Pregnant!”



From the time I held my baby

in my arms…

I made a vow to “protect her from all harm.”


She’s been a wonderful bundle of joy…

And has been a gift for us to enjoy.


She’s been the focus of much of out attention,

Trying to provide for her

“timely” correction.


As a father, many thoughts entered my mind…

I wanted to be attentive to her,

patient and kind.


As she would go through

her teenage years…

I thought of what perhaps is a parent’s  #1 “fear.”


Then one day, “Mom I’m pregnant” were spoken.

At first, my heart was sad and “broken.”


“I didn’t raise her to be “crazy and wild…”

“How could this happen to a wonderful child?”


I realized that in spite of everything

 parent’s will do.

There’s no telling what their

children will go through.


I gave her a hug and all of the

 support  I could give…

Everything she’s been through…

 God will forgive!


With all that has happened in her life…

One day she’ll make someone a wonderful wife!


Dear Lord Please help my daughter to see...

How much of a blessing to

her mother and me!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
