In a time when a country was depressed
A young star rose from the depths
Her curly hair and infectious smile
Brought nothing but joy to the world.
But like all things, her cuteness didn’t last
Instead, she decided to take on the world
But the world will never forget
How she gave them joy in the face of great sadness
The world is now a duller place
Because she is no longer in it.
She will be missed everywhere.
