For our baby, Hope. We lost you before we met you. But we loved you before we lost you.


We’ve been here before, we’ve opened up the door.
Now we’re scared to death to hope for breath.
Word on the street, can you hear the beat?
It’s the sweetest sound, when it can be found.

Oh, Oh
Life is not our own,
But baby, you are mine
And always will be.

The twenty-fifth of May would be the birthday
That was never born, a time to mourn.
One twenty-three, I guess we’ll see.
And my stomachs sick, but I felt a kick.

We don’t choose our name. We don’t choose our grave.
Those come from up above, but we choose to love.
So let’s make a list of all the ways love is a risk:
It could get you killed. Blood and tears you’ve spilled.
It could get you saved; in the end only love remains.
