In The Name of Love

She met him at a party
It was his smile that caught her eye
He made her eyes light up with laughter
She believed he’d never lie

They sat alone and talked for hours
’til the early morning light
She was the object of his affection
On that warm and starry night

He walked her home at sunrise
With a promise on his lips
He’d be there waiting after class
and then he left her with a kiss

Her days were cold without him
At night she found warmth in his arms
Never knowing she was one of many
Who had fallen for his boyish charms

The days got shorter, the air turned brisk
As summer slowly faded away
She can close her eyes and remember
It seems like it was yesterday

In her heart was love and laughter
As she joyously broke the news
In his heart was shock and anger
His freedom he would not lose

She searched her heart for answers
She prayed to God above
“Lord, help me find the answers
for this baby I now love”

Once again the days got shorter
Summer faded day by day
If she closes her eyes she can remember
The day her world fell away

She was born in mid-September
On a day full of beauty and promise
Her new parents were waiting to take her
They were anxious, scared and cautious

As the young mother held her one last time
She looked up to the heavens above
“Thank you Lord for the courage
To give her up, in the name of love”
