Aaliyah Dana

Written by: Ashley Humes

22 doves released, each for the years of your life, which ended so soon 
You were needed by someone else more greater than ourselves 
Through the golden gates so far away you await until our last day and it is then our time to fly away 
No words can explain how much we continue to miss the flow of your dark hair, the curves of your red lips, your calm, deep, innocent stare, and your slick moves when you dance 
If only we had one more chance, why did it have to end, end so soon we only hope to see your beautiful face again

                                                                                                        For Aaliyah, 
                                                                                                (entertainer) 1979-2001
