Today There Will Be Silence

Today there will be silence mom,
no crying will you hear.
I didn't mean to anger you,
I just wanted you near. 

Today there will be sleep again, 
I won't cry out in vain.
The nights I needed comforting,
were filled with hurt and pain. 

How could someone so big and strong, 
strike out at little me?
I was a gift, your little girl,
unwanted now, I see. 

Today there will be love at last,
l on angels wings I'll soar.
Way up high, above the clouds,
through heavens golden doors. 

So momma, say a prayer for me
for the life I'll never know
I just wish you could have cared for me
for I would have loved you so
