Little flower

no one to protect, 
precious lily of the field
beauty rare and joyous life
taken long before its time

Lily, Lily white and spotless
small and sweet but tortured she
fragile, gentle, caring Lily
dancing, singing, playing, laughing
life cut short by senseless rage
bruised and battered for no reason
by a monster with no feeling

Jesus, keep sweet little Lily
tightly in your loving arms
kiss her, hug her, hold her closely
wipe away her earthly tears

now she’s safe and free from trouble
no more harm will come her way
Lily, Lily precious Lily 
in our hearts you’ll always stay
