Heather IV: The Pricking Of A Thorn

The world became a better place on the day when you were born.
But on the day of your death, it was like the pricking of a thorn.
You guest starred in Happy Days, Fantasy Island, Our House and Chips.
Everybody was shocked when you died and it was hard to get a grip.
You also guest starred in Finders of Lost Loves and the New Leave It To Beaver.
Your life was so short but you were successful, you were quite an achiever.
In 1987, you starred once in Rocky Road.
When you starred in Webster, you were in three episodes.
To die at the age of twelve was terrible and very unfair.
But Heaven became a better place when you went there.

[Dedicated to Heather O'Rourke (1975-1988) who died on February 1, 1988.]
