9 Months Ago

9 months ago you fought for your life

9 months ago you cried your eyes out

9 months ago you screamed for help

9 months ago I started my journey

 

8 months ago you hid from the world

8 months ago you drowned in your tears

8 months ago you shun out the world

8 months ago I continued my journey

 

7 months ago you felt something strange

7 months ago you noticed the changes

7 months ago you got the “good” news

7 months ago I continued my journey

 

6 months ago you felt the despair

6 months ago you cancelled your future

6 months ago you weren’t ready

6 months ago I continued my journey

 

5 months ago you had to make a choice

5 months ago you hated this all

5 months ago you wished you were gone

5 months ago I continued my journey

 

4 months ago you heard what they said

4 months ago you felt you should let go

4 months ago you made your choice

4 months I continued my journey

 

3 months ago you visited the hospital

3 months ago you felt my first kick

3 months ago you had to let go

3 months ago I continued to my journey

 

2 months ago you saw I was there

2 months ago you knew there was life

2 months ago you made your final choice

2 months ago I continued my journey

 

Last month you went to the hospital

Last month you answered their question

Last month you made your decision

Last month I continued my journey

 

Today my journey ended

Today my eyes saw darkness… before they saw light

Today you saw me live, mom

Today I thank you for being strong
