Under the street lights
In a gloomy rainy night
I dropped my baby
In a crafted basket on someone else’s porch.
I didn’t mean to abandon my sweetie.
I love my sweetheart so much.
But the most I could do,
I always knew,
The only thing, the only gift I could have given her
Was to bring her into this world
Was solely to give birth to her.
You don’t know how much I’m hurting
To step away and hear her cry
But it’s worth my bleeding
If it can keep her dry.
I can’t raise her right
Because everyday is a fight.
A fight for food, for shelter,
Sometimes I even get my water from the sewer.
She’s my little sunshine
And I’d love to forever call her mine.
But I can’t only think of me,
I have to walk away, I must leave
While she’ll still able to not remember me.
I have to grieve.
I just want her to have everything that she could need.
