It was a new house
A new day
A new life

It would be different this time
He repeated to his wife
He repeated to himself
But she didn’t believe him
Almost as much as he didn’t believe himself

Their family had been torn apart
Torn apart by something that should have brought them together
A baby
A new baby
A dead baby

The baby was fine
Fine until it tried to escape from his prison
From her womb

He blamed her
She blamed herself
He couldn’t look into her eyes with out remembering the babies funeral
She couldn’t look into the mirror without crying
Their marriage was doomed
All because of one baby

Emma Christina
A beautiful name for someone that wasn’t meant to live
He wanted a girl
She had wanted a boy
They ended up with neither

Matthew James
A strong name for someone that wasn’t meant to live
She wanted a boy
He had wanted a girl
They ended up with neither

The couldn’t forgive themselves for something that wasn’t under anyone’s control
They couldn’t forgive each other
And so now the happiness they once had
Is gone forever

All because of a baby
A baby that wasn’t meant to live
