“You were my little baby girl
And I shared all your fears
Such joy to hold you in my arms
And kiss away your tears
But now you’re gone there’s only pain
And nothing I can do
And I don’t want to live this life
If I can’t live for you
To my beautiful baby girl
Our love will never die.”

-Sid Vicious (Poem for Nancy)
