This beautiful angel graphic reminded me so much of Tina,
as her favorite color is purple and her favorite flower is a rose.

My Precious Little Girl

I had a lovely little girl that God gave me
A child whom I love so very dearly
I was there whenever she cried for me
I was there when she skinned her little knee
I was there when she took her first walk
I was there when she needed to talk
I was there when she first went to school
I was there when she learned the golden rule
But then one day she grew up to be
I couldn't believe what my eyes did see
My little girl had become a woman like me
She got married and had a child, a son
Oh how he was like her morning sun
My child is gone now, no where to be found
We've searched and searched the low and high grounds
We've searched the rivers and forests too
For three long years without a clue
And so I asked the Lord, what should I do?
I cried to God most everyday and this is what I had to say
Dear Lord, Please let me know what has happened to my child.
I can not bear these days knowing she is out in the wild.
My worst fear Lord, is that she will never be found
Oh please, dear Lord let me know, where is my child?
God answered my prayers as He always does.
The police came to tell us what they did believe
My child's remains have finally been found
Oh mercy me, is she truly gone now?
After 13 long weeks of waiting for results
The phone call came with the answers we loathe
DNA testing proved that this was my child
She was murdered and her killer has not been found.
So my prayers today continue as I so patiently wait
Dear Lord, please help us find the person whom
Is responsible for taking my dear child away
So that we may have Justice once and for all.
As I continue living on this earth
With my life in Your hands,
I know that my child waits
With wide open arms.
I thank you Lord for giving me
My precious little girl, Tina Marie.
