Take me instead

I still sit in the corner, trying to work out why
My heart still feels heavy, my eyes still want to cry.

You were my daughters daughter, not quite reached the age of two
You looked at the world with wonder, and your actions were all new.

I still see your tiny coffin, still hear this chant go through my head
If you had had any compassion lord, you’d have taken me instead.

Take me instead
