Eighteen years ago, a star was born
The genes said it all -
Beautiful, fair and tall.
Endowed with the most melodious voice
Like sparkling fresh water tinkling over pebble,
Like white pearls spilt from velvet bag-
Onto pure, white marble floor.
Her beauty resonating into her
Beautiful mind... building beautiful
Character, full of goodness, kindness and compassion.
Graceful as the white swan sailing down yond lake.
Calm composition, a light and lively life -
A sweet soul!
Born to achieve great heights and tread the path of success-
As nimbly as a dancing sunflower in the afternoon breeze.
But for unforgiving fate, seeking to clear the debt
From some life... to the agony of all - she was
An everlasting tribute from her dear little brother, who saw the world a year later
