A year ago today
I found out you were here
As the doctor spoke the words
I barely shed a tear

A year ago today
Was the day my life changed
I couldn’t take it in at all
There were no words to say

A year ago today
I didn't know what to do
The shock was overwhelming
How could there be a 'You'?

A year ago today
I found out you weren’t meant to be
It didn't make sense, this wasn't meant to happen
The words burned my heart, you see

Now, one year later
If you had stayed with us, here
What would you have been like?
Would you have been like me?

Now, one year later
Would you have been like Dad?
He wonders too, what could have been
It still makes him so sad

We didn't know you were here
We hadn't planned it, we don't know why
But it still breaks our hearts some days
And it still makes us cry

We didn't know you were here
And even though it wasn't meant to be
You still touched us, more than you know
Forever, with us, you will be
