Say her Name

You said “If there’s anything I can do, just ask”

So here I am now, my face a mask

of grief .

And I’m asking, “Say her name”.

If I cry, it’s not because you said her name

It isn’t because you brought her to mind-

She is never out of my mind,

And sometimes they are tears of happiness

that for a short time she was given to me.

My beautiful baby girl.

When you send our card, I’m asking this

that you write her name,

If I cry it’s not because you wrote her name

It isn’t because you brought her to mind,

She’s never out of my mind.

And sometimes they are tears of happiness

because you have remembered

my beautiful baby girl.

Say her name, say her name.

Matilda Mae.
