Nancy Brar

She was just a child

With hair of golden yellow

Always wearing a smile

And her lake blue eyes twinkling with a “Hello”

She was no illusion or lie

She was purer than any blue sky

Her sweet demeanour melted ice into water

Her mother was proud to call her daughter

She ran around, as most children do

Always getting herself into trouble, and mischief too

She was the sort with a wide-eyed grin

A tiny dimple showing in her podgy little chin

Following her older brother around

Asking him questions about this and that

Wondering everything to the ground

A curiosity kitten cat

She was just a child

Unbidden, free and wild

Innocence in the eyes

A girl who wanted to fly
