THE YOUNG WOMAN Like the seal you spoiled to read these words / My life’s torn in forfeit / So I pray that you would open wide / The doorway of your heart / I fear to tell you what’s been growing deep inside of me / My love conceived a life / A life that needs a love greater than my own / This child needs a home / She needs more than I could ever give / This child needs a father’s love / This child needs a father
