I couldn't believe my eyes
When driving along the road
I couldn't believe my eyes,
What I saw was a bundle of joy
A poor little mite small in size.
At first sight a bundle of rags
Thrown in the gutter,
Other cars had gone round them
My god it's a baby I heard myself mutter.
I jumped out of the car I was shaking all over
I think it was the shock, it beggared belief,
I picked the baby up and a huge smile appeared
As I held her in my arms it was such a relief.
And as I looked back just a few yards from the car
An Iron gate was open perhaps she came from there,
At the top of the drive was a big metal garage
On the house was a side door perhaps a parent, but where?
I knocked on the door with this sweet child in my arms
Then suddenly from behind the garage came screams,
My baby she said what are you doing with my baby?
Hysterical obviously thinking I was trying to kidnap her it seems.
I tried to explain I had found the baby in the road
But she would have none of it and threatened me with the police,
To have me arrested for saving the baby's life
I just walked away because she wouldn't stop or cease.
To this day I wonder if she realises what she did wrong
But I thank the good lord above for saving that young life,
And probably she has realised by now her mistake
by leaving the gate open so the little one could escape.
THIS IS A TRUE STORY!!
