As Ryan tells her story
The pictures freeze her memory
Thea wants to talk about Emma

Only three years old
Choking on her toy
You didn’t give her a chance
To get anything wrong

A fight for life out on the lawn, we’re losing
A mother’s desperation screams “Do Something”
The ambulance has missed it’s chance to save her
Silently with gentle hands you take her

I know You’re in control
But I can’t understand at all
How You’d let this happen to Emma

You closed her innocent eyes
Your hands they hold her tight
You didn’t give her a chance
To get anything wrong

This ugly world deprived of one so lovely
You couldn’t wait anymore time for Emma
Now misted mother’s grieving eyes are seeing
Resting on Your open palm, she’s breathing
She’s still breathing…

You didn’t give her a chance
To separate from Your hands
Thank you for every second
You lent her to this earth.
