Shannon Nicole (03-30-91 / Oak Park, IL)
Watch her beautiful smile disappear,
Its like a lost pet that never returns.
She loses faith, she loses hope.
Please, I beg you,
Save her from this place.
She gets lost in crowds.
She burns in the light,
Her voice is lost and cracked.
Every night she wishes upon a great star,
Hoping something comes true.
Grant her one important little wish,
I promise, its simple.
