|A life so bright|
It shined with its light
A heart so good
It held the world within.
Then the tough choices made by life
Created a mask that dimmed the light
And when nothing polished away the dirt
The light got covered
And its shine was hurt.
Then sudden to the thought
It vanished away
All left now is a shining little ray,
Shining down from the heavens
Which took in your lost life to stay.
Wish it could have been otherwise...
