She was born a girl and not a boy
And was called beautiful Bonnie Joy;
Every morning when was dressing
We knew God gave us a great blessing.
At mother's heart did tug and pull;
A bouncy baby who had been beautiful;
For months in mom's body, Bonnie was in
Who always gladly would do it again.
To book club meeting did open the door;
Bonnie Joy's love wasn't there anymore;
Cried so and my heart just sank
When I saw her chair now blank.
With Bonnie there, joy would abound
Each and every time she was around;
One night a full moon seemed to appear
And knew her twilight now was near.
Phone rang and wondered who it was;
Heard husband clear throat like he does
When bad news has appeared in the air;
Always so difficult and hard to bare.
Another near and close friend had died
And inside and out I cried and cried
That eventually through time and years
Will return back again to be happy tears.
Bring back, bring back my Bonnie to me;
She's now in heaven where God can see
Pleasant smile which means so much
And memory of her can almost touch.
God, treat her nice and do take care
Of Bonnie whose memory is everywhere;
She brought special gift to all she knew
Sweet Bonnie we will never forget you.
