On children's faces shining 
Your smile relieves their fears 
And when their hearts are crying 
You wipe away their tears 

Of magic you're the meaning 
That every night they see 
So quiet are their feelings 
Like they could never be 

Life can be bright and happy 
Or sad and wet with rain 
It can be warm and sunny 
Or maybe cold with pain 

Yet of one gem life couldn't 
Deprive us, in the night 
So soothing is your presence, 
So comforting your light!

April 23, 1998
Dedicated to Monica Pärnänen. 
May your bright star shine forever!
