A Mother Seeing Her Baby In The Hospital For Cancer

I watch you lie here
In this bed, with no idea
Your face is kind of pale and your hair is gone
I'm trying to be strong
I'm really trying
I don't want you seeing me crying
You give me your smile
How could something like this happen to my child
I pray everyday
That the good Lord will make a way
I wish it was me instead of you
It would be cool
I have to let you get your rest nowy
Mommy needs to be alone for a while
When I'm alone in the place
I can't help the tears that is falling from my face
