You Are the Sunshine of My Life

by Clara Allen and Joshua Fink

You are the sunshine of my life,
Your beautiful smile light up the room,
Your warm and gentle embrace I miss,
You are so precious to me.

Dominique, I miss you,
Baby girl, we miss you.
Dominique, I miss you,
Baby girl, we miss you.
Dominique, I miss you.

When I named you, Dominique,
I knew your name meant blessing of God.
July twentieth, two-thousand seven,
Senseless gun violence sent you to heaven.
It’s true the good do die young,
God now has another beautiful angel.

Dominique, I miss you,
Baby girl, we miss you.
Dominique, I miss you,
Baby girl, we miss you.
Dominique, I miss you.

She cared for everyone she met,
So many memories together,
So many dreams left undone,
Dominique was the sweetest person I knew.

Dominique, I miss you,
Baby girl, we miss you.
Dominique, I miss you,
Baby girl, we miss you.
Dominique, I miss you.

I knew you were born to lead,
A wonderful person with so much love,
You came to give a little of yourself,
A laugh, a smile, or just to help out.

Dominique, I miss you,
Baby girl, we miss you.
Dominique, I miss you,
Baby girl, we miss you.
Dominique, I miss you.

I know you’re smiling down on us,
I know you are in a better place,
I hold on to the promise of God,
That I will see you again someday, Dominique.

Dominique, I miss you,
Baby girl, we miss you.
Dominique, I miss you,
Baby girl, we miss you.
Dominique, I miss you.
