her mother packed her a lunch like every other day
helped her into her shirt and pants and tied her shoe lace
her mother drove her to school in the same green van
held her hand, walked her to class and kissed her little head
her mother said she'd be back just as soon as school would end
what a shame that she didn't know.
 
she didn't know a man would come along
sick in the head, bent over with a mask
and a deadly object in his hand
a man with a sick plan written in his head
a tragedy that would never let her see her little girl ever again.
 
his father woke him up out of bed just like every other day
helped him wash his face and pick out his clothes
his father walked him down the block to school on the same street
carried him on a piggy back position, walked him in, and waved good bye
his father promised he would be back again to get him
a tragedy, how could he have known?
 
he didn't know a man would come along
sick in the head, bent over with a mask
and a deadly object in his hand
a man with a sick plan written in his head
a tragedy that would never let him see his little boy ever again.
 
a quick phone call from the school
a mother speeds to the local hospital
a breathless check in crying tears
the painful news, falling into a chair
a man chose to die, a little girl did not.
a father drives to a local hospital
the heartbreaking news, fist into a wall
a man chose to die, a little boy did not.
