"She's in the sun, The wind, the rain

shes in the air you breathe with every breath you take.

She sings a song of hope,

and cheer, there's no more

pain, no more fear.

You'll see her in the clouds

above, hear her whisper

words of love.

You'll be together before

long, until then listen

for her song." - Cristy Ann Martine
