  3. Dawn was an angel, is loved and will be missed !
    She is only away-in your thoughts and your heart you are always together, never apart;
    In your sorrow, remember-she's only away... though she may not be with you the memories stay...and in time, when the hurt isn't too much to bear, whenever
    you look in your heart she'll be there.
