The bassinet was set up, the clothes and diapers were bought,

But Lord I think there was something you forgot,

Because when I went to the hospital, I did not get to bring my baby home,

I had to come home all alone.

The pain I feel I can't describe,

The emptiness I feel I cannot hide.

I had to pack it all away,

And save it for another time and another baby's face,

But no one will ever take his place.
