January 1990 ----- June 8 2000
TO MY BEAUTIFUL GIRL
Ming passed away on June the 8th
A scared brave girl was she
I held her tight with all my love
And said good-bye her pain freed.
On the cold nights when I'de go to bed
Her tender paw would pat my cheek
I'de wake to the softness of her touch
Together under the doona we'de go to sleep.
I stole her when she was very young
She'd been abused by the thugs next door
I saved her life and called her Ming Ming
On that night our true love was born.
I didn't want to let her go
She was the best friend I ever had
Two months have passed my eyes still wet
With pain and sorrow I will always fret.
I miss my baby girl so much
I miss her love and tender touch
I can still see her everywhere
My heart is broken it's so unfair.
The tears I still weep for my baby girl
You were only ten and far too young
I wont ever be the same again
Good-bye my baby you were a true friend.
