Beloved child

A little girl I'll never know,
No chance to see her grow.
Eyes of brown or blue,
Who is she, me or you?

Carried on the air with a sigh,
Questions asked but no reply.
Eyes of brown or blue,
Who is she, me or you?

Not to see two sisters play,
Or hear laughter every day.
Eyes of brown or blue,
Who is she, me or you?

Imagine a happy cheeky grin,
Little dimples on her chin.
Eyes of brown or blue,
Who is she, me or you?

She is our daughter Rebecca May,
Safe with you, in heaven she'll stay.
Eyes of brown or blue,
Who is she me or you?

by Edward Graham
