EVA CASSIDY

Miss Sunshine was her sobriquet, and she the golden child 
All through her happy infant days she wore that winning smile 
She loved the colors nature gave, but, sensitive and shy 
She suffered from the thoughtlessness of  some at junior high.  

So music was her salvation, she practiced all the while 
And breathed new life into sad songs with unique wondrous style 
And harmony came naturally, with shades of dark and light 
As with her paintings and her arts she kept her spirit bright. 

In the Valley of the Nightingales, by peaceful waters there 
That sylvan voice of honeyed cream still dances in the air 
Gifted by the shooting star with heart and mind so pure 
The softly spoken blue chanteuse too fragile to endure. 

Then morphine -laced to ease her pain and lifted to her chair
She sang out What A Wonderful World and left pure magic there
Adored by friends and family, her last performed goodbye 
She graced the notes with perfect pitch and heard her angels cry. 

She never got that little house, dreamed of, by ocean's roar 
She never sang out to the seas  from treasured golden shore 
Perhaps a choir out of sight down some yellow brick road 
Is led by Eva clothed in white, in Toto's fields of gold. 

In the Valley of the Nightingales, by peaceful waters there 
That sylvan voice of honeyed cream still dances in the air 
Gifted by the shooting star with heart and mind so pure 
The softly spoken blue chanteuse too fragile to endure. 

HEAR ME SING THIS.

THANK YOU.
