Dear God, please take care of our little girl,
The one with big eyes and soft brown curls.
She was special, as you should know.
We really didn't want to let her go.
She touched the hearts of everyone she knew.
Letting her go is so hard to do.
Her smile could brighten up the darkest room.
I wish you didn't have to take her so soon.
