Lily Burk

An angel went back to heaven
The demon sits here on earth
The rest of us will wallow in the
middle of the blackened dearth

Fair haired light eyed saw her picture and i cried
Anybody's daughter everybody's crime
Why oh why is life so sublime?

How do we let the monsters loose in the park?
Why do we teach our kids not to fear the dark?

Swimming riding playing on the swings
drinking koolaid ounce by ounce
While a pathetic loser killer waits
And ponders when to pounce

MY heart cries no don't let her go
We cannot bear to see
The angel going back to heaven
While the killer walks among
You and me.

RIP pretty lily Burk
Angel in heaven
She floats she flies she lives she dies
Everybody cries and cries
She smiles and smiles for miles and miles
Lily of the heart lily no goodbyes

And in the back of my minds eye i see John Walsh
As he drops his head and sighs
