Mother’s Day rose
she bought herself — for the child
she couldn’t keep

  1. I’m glad if I was able to convey a bit of the emotions involved. I had a dear friend who gave up a baby. There was always a sting of sorrow for her when roses were handed out at church on Mother’s Day. I had two good friends who, as teens, had abortions — and were never able to conceive again after.
