Girl In Green: A Remembrance and Tribute


It was a soft Wisconsin fall

You woke up strong and tall

The sun was bright and off you went

To do the work that others left

You were excited as you tied your shoes

A girl in green paying her dues

You got out of the car and said hi to your friends

Straight to work, you girls ascend

Nearly done, you look up and see

A big black truck coming full speed

No time to move, no time to think

What happened next, makes our hearts sink

Your sweet smile we miss so much

You don’t know how many hearts you touched

We have cried so many tears for you

As a mother I know this to be true

Scout on sweet girl, you passed every test

Earned every badge, they cover your vest

We will see you again and hold you tight

Rest softly now on this dark night
