    Default Helpful Poems, Prayers, Songs & Such

    I am starting this thread for all of us to post poems, prayers, songs etc that have helped us through our sad days.

    I am hoping that it will be a place that we can all come to when we need a little uplifting.

    If you have something to add, please do so. I want to have as many inspirations as possible. I know that it helps me and others to read touching sentiments.

    ~*~Mommy Please Don't Cry~*~

    Mommy, please don't cry...
    A beautiful angel carried me here!
    I met Jesus today, Mommy!
    He cradled me in His big, strong arms.
    He made me feel so happy inside.

    Mommy, please don't cry...
    Heaven is wonderful!
    Did you know the streets are made of gold? Real gold!
    I have lots of friends, Mommy.
    We run and play, we giggle and laugh.
    I can't wait to show you my secret hideouts!

    Mommy, please don't cry...
    When I fall it doesn't hurt!
    There are no tears in Heaven.
    I've met a man named Noah. He told me about his big boat, all the animals, and the very first rainbow.
    Have you heard of Noah, Mommy?

    Mommy, please don't cry...
    We have lots of parties here; with streamers and hats, and the best chocolate cake ever!
    When it's time to rest, angels tuck us in. I never get scared Mommy, there is no darkness here!
    Jesus is the light of Heaven.

    Mommy, please don't cry...
    The angels are always singing.
    I love to sing with the angels!
    You'd be proud of me, I have a pretty good voice. I must have gotten it from you.
    There is a river, Mommy, in the most beautiful garden you could ever imagine...and a huge tree with yummy fruit.
    The angels call it the tree of life.
    Mommy, it's so wonderful to be alive in Heaven!

    Mommy, please don't cry...
    Sometimes I just like to be by myself. That's when I think of you.
    Someday, Mommy, we will hold each other tight!
    Then you will cradle me in your arms, and stroke my hair...and once again, our hearts will beat together.

    Mommy, please don't cry...I'll wait right here for you.

    I'm free

    Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
    I'm following the path God laid for me.
    I took his hand when i heard him call
    I turned my back and left it all.

    I could not stay another day,
    To laugh, to love, to work or play.
    Tasks left undone must stay that way,
    I found that place at the close of day.

    If my parting has left a void,
    Then fill it with remembered joy.
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
    Ah yes, these things, I too will miss.

    Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
    I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
    My lifes been full I savored much,
    Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.

    Perhaps my time seemed all to brief,
    Don't legthen it now with undue grief.
    Lift up your heart and share with me,
    God wanted me now, He set me free.

    This was what was written at my ex's funeral, I thought it was beautiful just wanted to share.

    For as long as I shall live
    I will testify to love
    I'll be a witness in the silences
    When words are not enough
    With every breath I take
    I will give thanks to God above
    For as long as I shall live
    I will testify to love

    these are some of the songs, poems, sayings i keep in my journal here to remind me of my angel "Zachary" ...he was stillborn @ 33wks






    Artist: Faith Hill

    Album: Pearl Harbor Soundtrack

    Title: There You'll Be



    When I think back on these times

    And the dreams we left behind

    I'll be glad 'cause I was blessed

    To get to have you in my life

    When I look back on these days

    I'll look and see your face

    You were right there for me



    In my dreams I'll always see you soar above the sky

    In my heart there will always be a place for you

    For all my life I'll keep a part of you with me

    And everywhere I am, there you'll be



    Well you showed me how to feel

    Feel the sky was in my reach

    And I always will remember all the strength you gave to me



    Your love made me make it through

    Oh, I owe so much to you

    You were right there for me



    In my dreams I'll always see you soar above the sky

    In my heart there will always be a place for you

    For all my life I'll keep a part of you with me

    And everywhere I am, there youll be



    'Cause I always saw in you my light, my strength

    And I want to thank you now

    For all the ways you were right there for me

    You were right there for me

    For always













    Artist: Sarah McLachlan

    Album: Mirrorball

    Title: Angel



    Spend all your time waiting

    for that second chance

    for a break that would make it okay

    there's always one reason

    to feel not good enough

    and it's hard at the end of the day

    I need some distraction

    oh beautiful release

    memory seeps from my veins

    let me be empty

    and weightless and maybe

    I'll find some peace tonight



    in the arms of an angel

    fly away from here

    from this dark cold hotel room

    and the endlessness that you fear

    you are pulled from the wreckage

    of your silent reverie

    you're in the arms of the angel

    may you find some comfort there



    so tired of the straight line

    and everywhere you turn



    there's vultures and thieves at your back

    and the storm keeps on twisting

    you keep on building the lie

    that you make up for all that you lack

    it don't make no difference

    escaping one last time

    it's easier to believe in this sweet madness oh

    this glorious sadness that brings me to my knees



    in the arms of an angel

    fly away from here

    from this dark cold hotel room

    and the endlessness that you fear

    you are pulled from the wreckage

    of your silent reverie

    you're in the arms of the angel

    may you find some comfort there

    you're in the arms of the angel

    may you find some comfort here













    Artist: Sarah McLachlan

    Album: Mirrorball

    Title: I Will Remember You



    I will remember you

    Will you remember me?

    Don't let your life pass you by

    Weep not for the memories



    Remember the good times that we had?

    I let them slip away from us when things got bad

    How clearly I first saw you smilin' in the sun

    Wanna feel your warmth upon me, I wanna be the one



    I will remember you

    Will you remember me?

    Don't let your life pass you by

    Weep not for the memories



    I'm so tired but I can't sleep

    Standin' on the edge of something much too deep

    It's funny how we feel so much but we cannot say a word

    We are screaming inside, but we can't be heard



    But I will remember you

    Will you remember me?

    Don't let your life pass you by

    Weep not for the memories



    I'm so afraid to love you, but more afraid to loose

    Clinging to a past that doesn't let me choose

    Once there was a darkness, deep and endless night

    You gave me everything you had, oh you gave me light



    And I will remember you

    Will you remember me?

    Don't let your life pass you by

    Weep not for the memories



    And I will remember you

    Will you remember me?

    Don't let your life pass you by

    Weep not for the memories

    Weep not for the memories







    Artist: GARTH BROOKS

    Album: Double Live

    Title: The Dance



    Looking back on the memory of

    The dance we shared

    'Neath the stars alone

    For a moment all

    The world was right

    How could I have known

    That you'd ever say goodbye?

    And now I'm glad I didn't know

    The way it all would end

    The way it all would go

    Our lives are better left to chance

    I could have missed the pain

    But I'd of had to miss the dance



    Holding you I held everything

    For a moment wasn't I a king



    But if I'd only known

    How the king would fall

    Hey who's to say you know

    I might have chanced it all



    And now I'm glad I didn't know

    The way it all would end

    The way it all would go

    Our lives are better left to chance

    I could have missed the pain

    But I'd of had to miss the dance



    Yes my life is better left to chance

    I could have missed the pain but

    I'd of had to miss the dance













    Artist: Mariah Carey

    Album: #1's

    Title: One Sweet Day (this is the song His father and I dedicated to him)



    [Featuring Boyz II Men]

    Sorry I never told you

    All I wanted to say

    And now it's too late to hold you

    'Cause you've flown away

    So far away

    Never had I imagined

    Living without your smile

    Feeling and knowing you hear me

    It keeps me alive

    Alive

    And I know you're shining down on me from Heaven

    Like so many friends we've lost along the way

    And I know eventually we'll be together

    One sweet day

    Darling, I never showed you

    Assumed you'd always be there

    I took your presence for granted

    But I always cared

    And I miss the love we shared

    And I know you're shining down on me from Heaven

    Like so many friends we've lost along the way



    And I know eventually we'll be together

    One sweet day

    Although the sun will never shine the same

    I'll always look to a brighter day

    Lord I know when I lay me down to sleep

    You will always listen as I pray

    And I know you're shining down on me from Heaven

    Like so many friends we've lost along the way

    And I know eventually we'll be together

    One sweet day

    And I know you're shining down on me from Heaven

    Like so many friends we've lost along the way

    And I know eventually we'll be together

    One sweet day

    Sorry I never told you

    All I wanted to say






    THE CORD



    We are connected,

    My child and I, by

    An invisible cord

    Not seen by the eye.

    It's not like the cord

    That connects us 'til birth

    This cord can't be seen

    By any on Earth.

    This cord does it's work

    Right from the start.

    It binds us together

    Attached to my heart.

    I know that it's there

    Though no one can see

    The invisible cord

    From my child to me.

    The strength of this cord

    Is hard to describe.

    It can't be destroyed

    It can't be denied.

    It's stronger than any cord

    Man could create

    It withstands the test

    Can hold any weight.

    And though you are gone,

    Though you're not here with me,

    The cord is still there

    But no one can see.

    It pulls at my heart

    I am bruised...I am sore,

    But this cord is my lifeline

    As never before.

    I am thankful that God

    Connects us this way

    A mother and child

    Death can't take it away!

    (unknown)







    Poem Without a Name





    To those who look away when I grow teary-eyed in the baby department, look a little deeper. Surely you have some compassion in your heart.





    To those who change the subject when I speak my sons' names, change your way of thinking. It just might change your whole life.





    To those who roll their eyes and say that we barely had them at all, how could we miss them so much, in our hearts we have seen them live a thousand times. We have seen their first steps, first day of school,their weddings, and their children. We have had them forever in our minds.





    To those who say we can have another, we did. I thank God for her everyday, but even if I have twenty more babies, I will forever have two in the grave, and that is two too many.





    To those who say to get on with my life, I have. It is a different life, the life of a grieving mother. One with a tremendous amount to be thankful for, but also one with a lot to mourn the loss of!





    Do not judge the bereaved mother. She comes in many forms.





    She is breathing, but she is dying.

    She may look young, but inside she has become ancient.

    She smiles, but her heart sobs.

    She walks, she talks, she cooks, she cleans, she works, she IS, but she IS NOT, all at once.

    She is here, but part of her is elsewhere for eternity.





    Do not dismiss us: we have shaped more than just the future generation.



    We have released all the tiny angels who are watching over you.



    Open your eyes to US, and you just might see THEM.

    I Believe: Diamond Rio.


    Every now and then,
    Soft as breath upon my skin,
    I feel you come back again,
    And it's like you haven't been,
    Gone a moment from my side.
    Like the tears were never cried;
    Like the hands of time are holding you and me.

    And with all my heart I'm sure,
    We're closer than we ever were.
    I don't have to hear or see,
    I've got all the proof I need.
    There are more than angels watching over me:
    I believe; Oh, I believe.

    That when you die your life goes on:
    It doesn't end here when you're gone.
    Every soul is filled with light,
    It never ends and if I'm right,
    Our love can even reach across eternity:
    I believe; Oh, I believe.

    Forever, you're a part of me.
    Forever, in the heart of me.
    I will hold you even longer if I can.
    Oh, the people who don't see the most,
    See that I believe in ghosts.
    If that makes me crazy, then I am,
    'Cause I believe.

    Oh I believe.


    There are more than angels watching over me:
    I believe; Oh, I believe.

    Every now and then,
    Soft as breath upon my skin,
    I feel you come back again,
    And I believe.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    [color=red] I have two poems i would like to share......these help me deal w/ Zachary's loss....tomorrow is 8 yrs since i found out he had passed....and Sat is 8 yrs that he was delivered stillborn.




    This first one was written by Mike.....i received it in a card Dec of 95:


    For Zachary:

    The day she conceived was a happy day indeed.
    The anticipation was excitable yet apprehensive.
    In the womb the fetus brought us close.
    The one April day, the news came shattering our dreams.
    As our son went to his eternal home.
    We felt that he forlorn us forever.
    Then that night in a shadowy sembalance.
    We saw him in a lusturous light.
    He came forth to let us know he is ALWAYS with us.
    From the first blush at break of day to the blackness of night.
    He keeps a vigilant look upon us.
    He annunciate us of evil as he comes the field of vision as a cloudy figure.
    Ascertain us of righteousness by the emergence of a radiant light.
    The celestial being from the Heaven above.....is with us always as He is our SON, Our Guardian Angel
















    This next one is from "Priests of Sacred Heart" ....it is in a Card i recieved from Mother's friend(one who's son died at exact moment i found out Zachary was dead) ....is it a Memorial Gift:



    Safely Home

    I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
    Oh, so happy and so bright!
    There is perfect joy and beauty
    In this everlasting light.



    All the pain is over,
    Every restless tossing passed;
    I am now at peace forever
    Safely home in Heaven at last.



    Did you wonder why i so calmly
    Trod the valley of the shade?
    Oh! but Jesus' love illumined
    Every dark and fearful glade



    And He came himself to meet me
    In that way so hard to tread;
    And with Jesus' arm to lean on
    Could i have one doubt or dread?



    Then you must not grieve so sorely
    For i love you dearly still
    Try to look beyond earth's shadows
    Pray to trust our Father's will.




    There is work still waiting for you,
    So you must not idly stand;
    Do it now, while life remaineth-
    You shall rest in Jesus' land.




    When that work is all completed,
    He will gently call you Home;
    Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
    Oh!, the joy to see you come!








    going to next post......don't want too much in one and not go thru

    My mom is a survivor, or so I've heard it said.
    But I can hear her crying at night
    when all others are in bed.

    I watch her lay awake at night
    and go to hold her hand.
    She doesn't know I'm with her
    to help her understand.

    But like the sands on the beach
    that never wash away...
    I watch over my surviving mom,
    who thinks of me each day.


    Author: Joanne Cacciatore





    No one will ever know...

    Many a lonely moment,
    Often a silent tear,
    But always a beautiful memory
    Of one who was so dear.

    Their memory is our keepsake
    From which we shall never part
    God has them in his keeping,
    We have them in our hearts.

    Friends may think we have forgotten
    When at time they see us smile,
    Little do they know the heartache
    That our smile hides all the while.

    We mourn for them in silence,
    No one can see us weep
    But many tears are shed
    While others are asleep.

    God gave us strength to fight it
    And courage to bear the blow,
    But what it means to lose them...

    NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW.

    What Makes a Mother

    I thought of you and closed my eyes
    And prayed to God today.
    I asked what makes a Mother
    And I know I heard him say.

    A Mother has a baby
    This we know is true.
    But God can you be a Mother
    When your baby's not with you?

    Yes, you can He replied
    With confidence in His voice
    I give many women babies
    When they leave is not their choice.

    Some I send for a lifetime
    And others for a day.
    And some I send to feel your womb
    But there's no need to stay.

    I just don't understand this, God
    I want my baby here
    He took a breath and cleared His throat
    And then I saw a tear.

    I wish I could show you
    What your child is doing today.
    If you could see your child smile
    With other children and say...

    "We go to earth to learn our lessons
    Of love and life and fear.
    My Mummy loved me oh so much
    I got to come straight here.

    I feel so lucky to have a Mum
    Who had so much love for me
    I learned my lesson very quickly
    My Mummy set me free.

    I miss my Mummy oh so much
    But I visit her each day.
    When she goes to sleep
    On her pillow's where I lay.

    I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek
    And whisper in her ear.
    Mummy don't be sad today
    I'm your baby and I'm here."

    So you see my dear sweet one
    Your children are ok
    Your babies are here in My home
    And this is where they'll stay.

    They'll wait for you with Me
    Until your lesson there is through.
    And on the day that you come home
    They'll be at the gates for you.

    So now you see what makes a Mother
    It's the feeling in your heart.
    It's the love you had so much of
    Right from the very start.

    Through some on earth may not realise
    Until their time is done.
    Remember all the love you have
    And know that you are a special Mum!

    Ghost Children


    Sometimes in the mornings,
    as I'm waking up,
    I can hear them playing downstairs -
    my little girl, my baby boy.
    She's telling him stories from her book,
    he's gurgling in delight,
    and I am so sleepy happy,
    drowsing in the warmth of my children.
    But when I get up to join them,
    there's no-one there.
    The house is empty.
    Still.

    And on the beach,
    lying in the hot summer sun,
    my eyes closed against the glare,
    I can hear them playing in the shallows.
    She's piling his lap with shells and seaweed,
    he's splashing his podgy arms up and down.
    When they sit next to me
    I can smell their warmth
    and feel their soft skin and wet hair.
    I can see their smiles
    but never their faces.
    And when I open my eyes,
    there is no-one there.
    Only emptiness.
    Stillness.

    Every waking hour I hear them,
    always in the next room,
    always just beyond,
    out of sight and
    out of reach.
    I search for them
    but they can never be found.
    The echo of their being dies away
    to silence,
    stillness.

    I'm closest to them in my dreams.
    There we can play together.
    I can hold them in my arms,
    kiss them,
    keep them safe from harm,
    live out my hopes for them.
    My unknown babies,
    my still babies,
    I will be your mother always
    in my dreams.

    Lessons on grief


    You asked, "How are you doing?" As I told you, tears came to my eyes...and you looked away and quickly began to talk again. All the attention you had given me had drained away.

    "How am I doing?" I do better when people listen, though I may shed a tear or two. This pain is indescribable. If you've never known it, you cannot fully understand. Yet I need you. When you look away, I am again alone with it. Your attention means more than you can ever know.

    Really, tears are not a bad sign, you know! They're nature's way of helping me to heal. They relieve some of the stress of sadness, . . . but you are wrong. The memory of my loved one's death will always be with me, it's only a thought away. My tears make my pain more visible to you, but you did not give me the pain, it was already there.

    When I cry, could it be that you feel helpless, not knowing what to do? You are not helpless, and you don't need to do a thing but be there. When I feel your permission to allow my tears to flow, you've helped me. You need not speak. Your silence as I cry is all I need.

    Be patient - do not fear. Listening with your heart to "how I am doing" relieves the pain for when the tears can freely come and go, I feel lighter. Talking to you releases what I've wanted to say aloud, clearing space for a touch of joy in my life. I'll cry for a minute or two... and then I'll wipe my eyes and sometimes you'll even find I'm laughing later.

    When I hold back the tears, my throat grows tight, my chest aches, my stomach knots - because I'm trying to protect YOU from my tears. Then we both hurt ME, because my pain is held inside, a shield against our closeness and YOU, because suddenly we are distant.

    So please, take my hand and see me through my tears.

    Pain—has an Element of Blank—
    It cannot recollect

    A time when it was not—

    There is no pain you are receding
    A distant ship, smoke on the horizon.
    You are only coming through in waves.
    Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying.
    When I was a child I had a fever
    My hands felt just like two balloons.
    Now I've got that feeling once again
    I can't explain you would not understand
    This is not how I am.
    I have become comfortably numb.

    Pink Floyd








    the pain never truly goes away, it just gets smaller and condensed, tucked away in a corner somewhere in the deep recesses of the heart. There it remains at a constant low level ache, which with time may be overridden. There may be times when a site, a smell, a place, a song, an anniversary or birthday will trigger the old memories and the intensity of the grief and loss will return again. These feelings often arrive without warning and can be just as painful making one feel as though he/she was experiencing the loss anew.
    Kirsti A. Dyer, MD, MS









    Mourning can go on for years and years.
    It doesn't end after a year, that's a false fantasy.
    It usually ends when people realize that they can live again,
    that they can concentrate their energies on their lives as a whole,
    and not on their hurt, and guilt and pain.


    Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

    Default Gods Garden

    "Gods Garden"

    God looked around his garden
    And saw an empty place.
    He then looked down upon the earth
    And saw your tired face.
    He put His arms around you
    And lifted you to rest.
    God's garden must be beautiful,
    He always takes the best
    He knew that you were suffering.
    He knew you were in pain
    He knew that you would never
    get well on earth again.
    He saw the road was getting rough,
    And the hill's hard to climb.
    So he closed your weary eyelids,
    And Whispered, Peace Be Thine,
    It broke our hearts to lose you,
    But you did not go alone,
    For part of us went with you,
    The day God called you home.

    Please Remember
    Artist - LeAnne Rimes
    Album - Coyote Ugly Soundtrack

    Time, sometimes the time just slips away
    And you're left with yesterday
    Left with the memories
    I, I'll always think of you and smile
    And be happy for the time
    I had you with me
    Though we go our seperate ways
    I won't forget so don't forget
    the memories we made

    Please remember, please remember
    I was there for you
    and you were there for me
    Please remember, our time together
    The time was yours and mine
    while we were wild and free
    Please remember, please remember me

    Goodbye, there's just no sadder word to say
    And it's sad to walk away
    with just the memories
    Who's to know what might have been
    We'll leave behind a life and time
    I'll never know again

    Please remember, please remember
    I was there for you
    and you were there for me
    And remember, Please remember me

    Please remember, please remember
    I was there for you
    And you were there for me
    Please remember, our time together
    The time was yours and mine
    While we were wild and free
    Then remember, please remember me

    And how we laugh and how we smile
    And how this heart was yours and mine
    and how a dream was out of reach
    I stood by you, you stood by me
    We took each day and made it shine
    We wrote our names across the sky
    We ride so fast, we ride so free
    And I knew that you had me

    Please remember, please remember

    I lost my nephew at 5 days old in Oct. 2003 and my best friends baby who was only 2 weeks older than my youngest passed away in march at 6 weeks old. I just wanted to post some poems that our family have all shared.

    A Baby’s Secret

    I’m just a little baby, who didn’t make it there.
    I went straight to be with Jesus and I’m waiting for you here.

    Don’t you fret about me Mommy, I’m one of God’s lambs most blessed.
    I’d have loved to have stayed there with you, but the shepherd knows what’s best.

    Many dwelling here where I live, waited years to enter in.
    Struggled through a world of sorrow, and their lives were marred with sin.

    So sweet Mommy don’t you sorrow, wipe those tears and chase the gloom.
    I went straight to be with Jesus from my lovely mother’s womb.

    Thank you for the life you gave me, it was brief but don’t complain.
    I have all heaven’s glory, suffered none of earthling’s pain.

    Thank you for the name you gave me, I’d love to have brought it fame.
    But if I’d lingered in earth’s shadows, I might have brought it shame.

    Daddy gave me something for you, it’s our secret Mommy dear.
    He pressed it tight against my forehead, whispered in my tiny ear.

    I’ll be waiting for you Mommy, you and Daddy; I’ll be with you then forever.
    Then I’ll give Daddy’s kiss to you.


    Letter From Heaven
    To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say.
    But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
    I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
    Here, there's no more tears of sadness; Here is just eternal love.
    Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
    Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.
    That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through.
    God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you.
    It's good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone.
    As for your dearest family, They'll be here later on.
    I need you here badly, you're part of my plan.
    There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."
    God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
    And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
    And when you lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight.
    God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
    When you think of my life on earth, and all those could have been loving years.
    Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
    But do not be afraid to cry: it does relieve the pain.
    Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
    I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
    If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
    But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
    I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
    There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
    But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
    It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too;
    That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
    If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain;
    Then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
    And now I am contented....that my life was worthwhile.
    Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
    So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low;
    Just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
    When you're walking down the street and you've got me on your mind;
    I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
    And when it's time for you to go....from that body to be free.
    Remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.
    And I will always love you from that land way up above,
    Will be in touch again soon
    P.S. God sends his love

    Some People

    Some people come into our lives
    And quickly go.
    Some people stay for awhile,
    And give us a deeper understanding
    Of what is truly important in life.
    They touch our souls.
    We gain strength from the
    Footprints they have left on our hearts,
    And we will never be the same.

    George Canyon has a beautiful song called My Name about losing a pregnancy.

    It’s cold in here fells like everything’s upside down
    I can feel you talking but I can barley make out the sound
    I been kicking around these parts, feels like a year
    I’m gonna change this world if I ever get out of here
    She wants to dress me in pink, paint’s my bedroom blue
    And I just laugh to myself, because only I know the truth
    This love is my only emotion
    Haven’t learned any fear any pain
    It’s kind of funny with all this commotion
    I guess they’ve got me, to blame
    And they don’t even know my name
    And they don’t even know my name

    Well I’ve never felt so ready, think it’s finally time
    Cause that big old world is waiting, and it’s mine all mine
    Just then everything got real quiet, it got real bright
    And a man took my hand said don’t worry, your mommas gonna be alright
    Then he opened the gate, & I followed him in
    Said you can wait right, here till it’s your turn again
    And his love is the one true emotion
    Heaven knows no fear no pain
    I never got to set my wheels in motion
    But they loved me just the same
    And they never even knew name
    Didn’t even know my name
    You loved me just the same
    And you didn’t even know my name
