I remember the moment of your birth.
The moment of your delivery unto the Earth.
I remember the sound you made.
Those cute noises which make problems fade.
I remember the first time you opened your eyes.
It made my heart melt even though it’s cold as ice.
I remember the first tantrum you had.
You were so annoying, but I could never get mad.
I remember the moment when you first crawled.
I saw your efforts as you stumbled.
I saw you roll & fall down.
I wanted to help you, but you had to learn on your own.
I remember your first step.
I saw as you slowly walk & skip,
From left to right, you slowly learned.
Until the time came when you grasped how to leap.
You were fulfilling your purpose for God.
It was an honor, for I saw the beauty & love.
The love of the creator for creating you.
A creature capable of taking away our woes.
Then the time came for tragedy.
When your body was filled with agony.
A monster bit you by the neck,
He struck a vein which paralyzed your legs.
I saved you from a certain death,
But you were gasping for breath.
I sheltered you & made you rest,
I took care of you & I did my best.
As the days went by you regained your health.
But your legs were useless now,
Like a swordless sheath.
You can no longer walk or prowl.
I looked at you with pity,
Because you would scream my name for a potty.
You would call out my name when you are hungry.
I would then feed you with milk like a baby.
This scene went on for days,
I tried to persist in finding a way.
But I had no money so you could get a check up.
I had no money to know if you could still stand up.
I didn’t want you to be a vegetable.
I wanted you to be well & able!
But I know that is impossible.
For you were now a cripple.
I was sad beyond explanation.
Misery was the only existing emotion.
At a moment of desperation,
I had a morbid realization.
What if I end it all for you?
Would you want that too?
Would you rather fly in the sky?
Would you rather live with a sigh?
So I had to do what I thought was right.
I had to do it though it will keep me up all night.
Though I know it will haunt me for all of my days,
It would be alright, ’cause I’ll free you anyways.
So I held your neck & began to squeeze
The life out of you & into the breeze.
You kicked & squealed as you began to choke.
I squeezed tighter & tighter like a demented bloke.
Then there was silence in the air.
Everything was quiet like an eerie lair.
I held your body, lifeless & stiff.
I knew then I was a cruel thief.
