2014 April PAD Challenge Day Five: Discovery Poem

The Letter

I found the letter by accident
In a long-forgotten box in the room
While a part of me always knew the truth 
Finding that letter gave me the proof

A letter enclosed with two sonograms
And an explanation why
She couldn't carry me for any longer
And nothing would change her mind

I carried around that letter for years
As proof that I'm not supposed to exist
I read it until I had it memorized
So that I would never forget

The letter itself is long gone now
But its words remain etched in my mind
The letter that confirmed everything
The letter that should've been my goodbye
