Your right to grow, to mature and play So cruelly denied, in a sinister way. Attentive and caring, a parent’s delight But so young at heart, needing comfort at night.
The garden is quiet, the house is too But pausing for a moment, we can still sense you. Your trusting nature and desire to please all Allow us your family to remain walking tall.
Our memories, now shared, with the nation’s hearts Small crumbs of comfort, now it is, time to part. We will never forget you, heaven’s gain, as it knows Is simply you Holly, our beautiful Soham rose.
