    Tears slowly roll down my cheeks
    Another one missing for over a week
    ......another little black girl
    ......with a smile so bright
    Another mother to mourn and cry tonight


    Just a year ago little Tyra disappeared
    Not even a clue....the worse we all feared
    ........a small body found
    ........right across the street
    Tyra will never play again in the sweet summer heat


    Now her name is Patricia
    A little delta girl
    .......pretty bows in her hair
    ......a smile so small and bright
    Poor little Patricia disappeared in broad day light


    Why our little babies
    .....Why Tyra
    .....Why Patricia
    .....Why any innocent child

    Why cause our tears to run over like fountains
    While another one of our babies is found dead in the mountains
    Or maybe in a creek
    or some overgrown field

    Why give another mother a wounded heart that will never heal
    .......Why Tyra
    .......Why Patricia

    There is no rhythm or reason. The young are victims, killed and exploited all over the world. Because they have no adults looking out for their welfare. If any thing was to change I would like the laws related to crimes against children to be sharpened. More focused and enforced to protect the innocence. We have to stop the abuse.
