For Amanda

Somewhere up in Heaven a doe eyed girl looks down,
With eyes so warm and gentle, and hair so chestnut brown.
Her smile is bright and happy, as she lightens up the day,
And God Himself is oh so proud, that she has come to stay.

The stars above New Mexico, seem brighter in the sky,
And kindness is a way of life for friends who care to try.
For it is in giving we keep her heart alive,
And though we miss her dearly we never question why.

So rest now with the angels, beautiful young girl,
As Random Acts of Kindness encompass our small world.
For others now will share your life in gentle loving ways,
And goodness grows because of you, to bless another’s day.
