All my hopes for you were shattered

When the Certificate arrived,

"Suicide by drowning - while of Insane


I wanted to reach out and touch you,

Tell you not to cry,

You must have been so unhappy,

But Emma - I'll never know why.

You were a "Domestic Housemaid"

Did they treat you bad?

Were you abused in secret?

Were you pregnant and feeling so sad?

I wish I could have told you

All problems can be solved,

I wish I could have stopped you

Jumping into the river, so cold.

I so wanted your death to be peaceful

With your loved ones by your side,

But thinking of you so sad and lonely

Has really made me cry

You can never answer my questions

I will always wonder WHY?
