Star (Tribute to Lis Sladen)

You were a star down on Earth;
Now you’re a star in the sky:
Straight up to Heaven
You were destined to fly.

I will never forget
That heartbreaking day,
When it was announced
That you’d passed away.

I could hardly believe it:
Had they made a mistake?
You were so full of life:
Too young for God to take.

Your departure back then
Took us all by surprise:
It broke all our hearts
And made us all cry.

When I see your photo,
I still can’t believe;
For your presence on Earth,
I still sit and grieve.

Two years have now passed
Since you left us behind,
But you’ll stay forever more
In our hearts and our minds.
