Now you lay me down to sleep
The soul God prayed for you to keep.
Sentenced to die before I awake,
My life ended, because of one mistake.
Though unborn my fate awaits,
A painful death leads to pearly gates.
As my limbs take leave, there comes a red stream,
But you won't hear my silent scream.
Metal clenches 'round my head, signals the time of death
With no way to fight back, I take my last breath.
I forgive you, not knowing the price to pay,
My life was "your choice" either way.
A mother's duty begins with life,
your task ended with the blade of a knife.
I will never know love or hate,
Because to you, my life was yours to take.
