Poem for Alixandra

Poetry By: fireflystar

This is a dedication to Alixxandra Royal who passed away on Monday 5th March 2012.
Alexandra was a student at our school who was terminally ill.
This poem will be put in our chapel on the noticeboard we have made with dedications to her and photographs.
She was beautiful and taken away from this life too soon.
Rest in peace.

How can I put into words, all that you have done?
This is just a small poem, small just like you, but the best things come in small packages.
Your smiles and your laughter is in all of our minds.
Thank you for helping us look on the bright side of life.
Tears fill our eyes because we miss you and you lost the fight.
But you were a fighter.
In ways, you won your war, you got it right.
You are an example to us all.
You were in pain so what did you do?
You smiled, and made us smile to.
When you were sad, what did you say?
A new joke for every animal, a worse joke every day.
First thing in the morning you asked us for maths questions, you didn't make a fuss.
We would have told you if you got them right, but it was to early for us.
Every evening, I heard you singing,
Or, if you were really happy, being a chicken.
Too soon you danced away from life.
But I know you'd want us to think of you happy.
You'll live on in our memories,
You'll laugh on in our hearts.
Your smile will light up our minds,
As you dance among the stars.
