[For Sophie Jessica Younis. Born: July 11, 2004/Died: July 14, 2004.]

Things all out of focus. The world seems somehow tainted.
Everything in shades of gray. Like God forgot to paint it.

Day is night and night is day. They all just seem to blend.
Shattered dreams and broken hearts that time will never mend.

Nothing seems to sound quite right. Music's all out of tune.
It's all because you came too early... and left us all too soon.

Another daughter I will miss, another up in Heaven.
Dear Sophie say hello to your sister, say hello to Jasmine.
