Empty baby

What sort of life

Is taken away

Without a word

Without a say


From a life unknown

Unsown to her side

Just left to slide

Into an empty tomb


Ripped from the womb

That lies empty

Surrounded by plenty

Of long, happy lives


So we strive

To burn our hurt, our rage

Turn over another page

And move on from the grief


Spilt out from that brief

Elapse of time

But I don’t feel fine,

Or know how to remember


How to dismember

This event from my mind

And I yearn to find

A memory to create


And not abate

These feelings that I’ve left you alone

On your own

With no love surrounding you


No future to renew

No reality born

Just torn

From our empty lives


I’m so sorry (I will never forget you)
