That minute we walked through the door
there wasn’t laughter anymore

The toys, once cheerful all around,
sat there silent without sound

Favorite books and dollies lay
unknowing she won’t come to play

The blankies that once kept out chill
stay in the cupboard soft and still,

Her dog, her sweet and loyal friend,
cannot comprehend the end

Hearts are broken, eyes are cried,
our darling little girl has died

And there we stood inside that door
she doesn’t live here anymore.
