To my wonderful Nana.. may she rest in peace.
I had a wonderful nana, Jean was her first name,
My parents loved her oh so much they named me the same.
I saw on the news a little girl was raped and killed
Only 8 years old, her life not yet fulfilled
What prompted that animal to do the things he did?
It's been twelve months since you passed away
We still miss you terribly each and every day
If only a cure was found to let you stay here
Rachel is my niece's name
Her parents think she is insane
Yet they are the ones she learnt everything from
The daffodils are flowering and they are so very bright
They glow as if luminous, every day and every night
The flowers grown on long stalks, holding them up to the sun
