There isn’t time to change her mind
They told my mother lies;
Restricted by these clamps that bind
I hear her inward cries.
There isn’t room to shift and squirm
Please take that thing away;
I was made to grow full-term
My hope you did betray.
Before I formed you in the womb,
I knew you…
There isn’t time to understand
No time to move aside;
Save me from this glove-swathed hand
I need a place to hide.
There’s no time to shun the tomb
This fear has taken hold;
My heart beats strong within her womb
I’ve never felt so cold.
I will never leave nor forsake you,
Don’t be afraid...
There isn’t time to know my name
My face she will not see;
All I feel is Mother’s shame
My life will never be.
There isn't even time to cry
All I can do is pray;
No! I do not want to die
So please just go away.
When you walk through the valley,
Fear no evil…
There isn’t time to hug you, Mum
Or look upon your face;
Listen to you sing or hum
And know your true embrace.
I'll never walk upon the earth
It’s time to say goodbye—
This wasn’t meant to be my birth;
Mother…it’s time for me to die.
I have called you by name,
Take my hand…
