It only took a moment for her
To vanish into thin air
They searched and searched
But could not find her anywhere

The news force rallied round
And posters immediately sprang up
Volunteers combed the streets
Vowing never to give up

Her family sat in silent shock
Disbelief held back the tears
That someone would be so cruel
To take a child of only six years

Days passed without a clue
Then suddenly a month went by
Still the child was not found
But the family continued to cry

A year went by with no luck
No trace, no break, no clue
Life went on, it had to you see,
There was only praying left to do

A hiker found the body
Hidden deep in the desert brush
Police and film crews were alerted
And descended in a rush

Outside the parents home
They stood crying in the rain
Relief mixed with grief tonight
To shadow a parentís pain.


Rain fell as she was laid to rest
Given to God, she forever sleeps
Sadness felt in all mortal hearts and
For lost children, mother earth weeps

So tragic and touching.
Wonderful words on such a wretched subject.
