My Second Chance

Writer’s Note: I wrote this when my baby fell from the bed. Our floor is not carpeted but I put comforter and pillows on it. Thank God she was fine.

It was not real
As I cried and cried
I knew I could never go back
I could never turn back the time
To save you
To protect you

I just let it happened
You fell and I wasn’t there
You were scared
I abandoned you
I betrayed your trust
I failed you

I thank God, Jesus and your angel
For looking after you
For giving us a second chance
I promise to make amends
I promise I’ll be better
I love you so much

Can your forgive me?
Can you take my hand again?
I will do my best to keep you safe
I won’t ever leave
My life, I will offer to you
If only to not lose you
