If I had known that our first hello
would also be good-bye
I would have tried a little harder
to keep you by my side.
I wish your perfect face
filled more of my memories.
But, as everyone keeps saying,
it just wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t meant to be.
How is it that a little life
can just be taken away?
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll never get over it,
no matter what they say.
You used to make your Daddy smile
even though you were never born.
And now when I think of those times,
it fells like my heart is torn.
Sometimes I wish I died with you,
just so youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d always be there.
But I could never leave your Daddy,
it just wouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be fair.
I know youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re always with us,
always watching what we do.
But this is not how itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s supposed to be,
we were supposed to watch over you.
