The light turns yellow and the mother hauls on the brakes, the truck behind her tried but it was already too late the little girl is knocked unconscious the ambulance soon arrives the mother has minor bruises but the child is listed in critical and the bedside vigil begins Alejandra, my baby, please get better for I need you with me her angels are hovering over waiting on the word that is yet to be tears seep through the mother's eyes whispering Alejandra, darling, how could this be one moment we're together and now I pray I'll have another chance to say how much I love you Twenty-four hours went by when Alejandra passed in the night she looked just like an angle so sweet in the light How will I ever live with this pain inside of me? When all I want to do is go and be with my baby Alejandra, my gift was taken all too soon and now my baby's in Heaven so brief and all too soon
