Did you cry when it hit you
The moment that it came?
Or did you simply breathe it in
While we declared your name?
Were you overcome with pain
As you tried to take it in?
Or did it just come so quickly
You didn’t know where to begin?
Could you have done it on your own
If we’d given you time to dream?
Or did you truly need the help
Of the hose and the machine?
Were you afraid that you weren’t ready
And That you had come to soon?
Or were you just sad you had to leave
The comfort of your mother’s womb?
Do you miss it even now?
Or Was it just a place to hide?
Is it darker here around you
Or is it brighter now outside?
Do you remember how it felt
When you realized you were on your own?
Were you afraid you’d be forgotten,
Or that you’d be left alone?
Has the sorrow gently faded
Now that you know you’re not alone
Or do you miss it more than ever
That place you called your home?
Do you ever wonder why
The things you love can make you cry?
Well sometimes love is really
The only reason why
So fill your heart with love,
Though tears forever flow
For the loss that you have felt
Is something that we all know
The home that you now miss
I miss it just the same
So help me to remember
Lest I forget its name
