Her spirit shines, even through this dark night;
Helps gently melt these frozen deeps of pain.
Bathes hearts that loved her in her special light
Which, having shone, grows never dark again.
Remembered joys will slowly fill some space
Left empty of such energies and truth;
No future time can ever now erase
Her ageless beauty and unending youth.

The vivacious, dancing American daughter of our friend, Robbie Davis-Floyd, tragically killed in a road accident a few days before her 21st birthday in 2000.
