(A Poem by my niece Sara)

~ The Price ~

A man and woman loved each other
burning deep with passions flame.
The man not ready to be a father
left the woman in her shame.

So a girl grew up without a father
or a boy grew up without his dad.
To make things worse he didn't bother
to even see the child he had.

Kids grow up in painful sorrow
wondering where their father's been.
They'll pay the price again tomorrow
all because of a moment of sin.
