What more is there to say
It can't be explained
After such a short time you already
had to leave
What have you done wrong

You didn't give us time to say goodbye
You leave us behind with tremendous sorrow
But in our hearts you will always be
Time heals the wounds but never the pain

We thank you for what you have given us
Your love, your smile and joy in your short life
Your beautiful dark eyes and your happy face
Are forever in our minds
.
