Mandy Girl by Mary

In loving memory of CurlyQ’s Mandarin Girl

The tide recedes but leaves behind
Bright seashells in the sand.

The sun goes down but gentle warmth
Still lingers on the land.

The music stops and yet
It echoes on in sweet refrain.

For every joy that passes
Something beautiful remains.

– M.D. Hughes

You were a good girl Mandy
We’ll all miss you.
