Goodbye, Sweet Child
By: Beatrice Cochran

(First repeating line borrowed from “Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night” By Dylan Thomas)

Do not go gentle into that good night
Too few years we held you precious child
Your candle goes out but another will ignite

Let sweet dreams embrace you tonight
We will remember how you once smiled
Do not go gentle into that good night

My sweet child you must hold on tight
On your beautiful bed your clothes are piled
Your candle goes out but another will ignite

Arms that once caressed you will never delight
You were a beautiful dancer, a child too wild
Do not go gentle into that good night

Police told us deer on the road caused you fright
Slamming your breaks too late and beguiled
Your candle goes out but another will ignite

Your beautiful eyes closed for eternity sleep tight
In your pink secret box goodbye letters are filed
Do not go gentle into that good night
Your candle goes out but another will ignite
