Sandra’s Lullaby

Little girl how are you doing?
Your mother is asking
Little girl are you alright?
Your father is asking
Little girl light up the world 
Your smile is illuminating
Little girl dance up a storm
Your joy is enticing
Little girl speak up and be heard
Your spirit is amazing
Little girl you are so grown now
You are learning and winning

Young girl sit and stay a while
Your brothers are singing
Young girl smile that smile again
Your sisters are dancing
Young girl where are you going?
Don’t you hear your father’s call?
Young girl where are you going?
Don’t you hear your mother’s cries?
Young girl breathe one more time
Everybody is hoping
Baby girl just open your eyes
Please come back to the living
Young girl where did you go?
You grew wings and learnt to fly

Little Angel smile upon us
Our souls are aching
Little angel  pray for us
Our world is crumbling
Little angel watch over us
Our hearts are breaking
Little sister rest in peace now
Your pain is no more
You are home free
