Stacey's Lullaby

A life cut short,
A fanned out flame,
A young girl lost,
An angel gained.
A terrible moment,
But who's to blame?
What's past has happened,
And can't be changed.
One bad choice,
One wrong move,
Make it an example,
There's a point to prove.
Life goes on,
But we can't move,
Stuck in this moment,
Still shocked by the news.
It can't be happening,
It's not for real,
But it takes a tragedy to teach,
A whole town how to feel.
Gather in a memory,
Weep together, now in peace,
But do not be discouraged,
For now the child sleeps.
