Never to return

never to return.

flash backs holding her close

dear god please bring her home

she was taken into the valley of death

please help her hold her breath

let our memories

keep her safe in these dark days

when they took my baby away

i never knew thatd be our last day

i didnt say  i love you

oh what i wish i could do

everything i do reminds me of her 

nearly 300 of our girls

save them and our family

i wont ask for no more

just to get back our precious girls

they need a mothers love

bring back my babies

we are on as a community 

theres no need for war

but you have torn

a baby for a loving mothers arm
