Sins in the Past

In the rearview mirror she can see
A life, a future that will be
A little girl with cat green eyes
If she's like daddy, she'll be wise
A laugh, a smile will last a while
All those memories will become so vile
Cuz she looked away for just a sec
Now their lives are a big huge wreck
We had to bury her deep down under
Every now and then we hear our girls thunder
I cry, I weep a thousand soft tears
Even after all these years
A life, a future that could have been
In the rearview mirror, she had sin

Very moving. I had to keep re-reading it. It also flows so well. No jagged non fitted words, just one big touching poem.
