It's hard to know just what to say,
When one so young is taken away.
Far too soon she had to part,
Her memory forever engraved in our heart.
We only knew her for a short while,
But the life she led made us smile.
She was so beautiful and oh so rare,
Life as they say just isn't fair.
Those gone before her will watch her with care,
Till the day comes when we'll all join her there.
Madeleine is watching from heaven above,
And with each ray of sunshine, she's sending her love.
