Rosaline Sonder

30 0 0

A six year old girl,

Full of sorrow and sadness

Has a mad, mad mother with too much madness

Her mother hits her and bruises her, like a batting machine

Oh, that girl full of secrets

Poor little Rosaline


Her teachers wonder, they ponder

But they don’t ask little Rosaline Sonder

She has no friends

She has no love

Until she meets Charlie Dove


They are best friends

That is no doubt

Until her mother finds out

She cries, she’s scared

All Rosaline thinks is that

Her mom doesn’t care


Her body is crippled, her eyes filled with tears

She’s afraid if she cries,

She’ll lose all her years

The neighbors don’t hear,

But they’ll soon find out

What Rosaline Sonder was all about


The ambulance comes

But they are far too late

For Rosaline Sonder has met her fate

It happened in the blink of an eye

While Charlie saw it happen,

He couldn’t say goodbye


Out in the graveyard, out past yonder

Laid that cold stone of Rosaline Sonder

Yes, Charlie was there, but no one had seen him float through the air

Past the stars and the clouds, the oceans and seas

To find her praying on her knees


And up in those clouds, in those stars on that night

Was Rosaline’s wonder, smiling so bright

He held out his hand, he offered his life

For Rosaline Sonder

For love, for friendship, for everlasting life
