she was only 5 years old when the lord took her soul.
seeing her in that casket as pretty as gold.
my eyes began to water as hers went dry,
thinking hard in my mind why did she have to die
memories of us playing together came back more and more,
but all the fun stopped when she reached that hospital door.
the whole family missed her and loved her so much
but never again will we feel that gentle touch
rest in peace kelis for with God you are today.
we will never forget you, but in our hearts you will stay.
