In memory and honor of Laci and Conner Peterson

Some may find this controversial, but this really touched my heart and I was compelled to write this

I am not yet ready to be born, so how could you hurt me?
I would have been a breath of sunshine, and I would have brought such joy to your life
I wanted to be born, to have a chance at life. Didn't you see?
Why did you want to hurt my mother and I? She was your wife.

I never had a chance to go to school, date girls, or give love
My chance for that was wickedly taken away
Now my mother and I are angels up above
Our lives were ended without remorse, without regret, without delay.

I wanted to breathe the air, I wanted to run, I wanted to play
I just wanted a chance to live like others
I would have loved my parents for all my life, from them I would have never strayed
I really wished I could have walked among men, my brothers.

I never felt the sun shine on my face, I never heard the rain
I was taken from this life before I even had a chance
Oh, my life if it I could just retain
But no, I never had a chance.

I was sent to a watery grave, with my mother me still inside her womb
I just wanted a chance to bring love and joy into your life
But instead we were sent to a watery tomb
I wanted just a chance, but instead I got death and a lot of evil strife.
