dear selena is in our hearts
she will never be apart
she came down from heaven above
she gave this world peace and love
she deserved, oh so much better...
glad that she lives on forever
i'll never forget her wonderful smile
she'll be with us for a good long while
and so i put this poem together
long live selena...
now and forever
February 26, 1995
February 26, 1995; nothing but tears left behind.
No one knew it would end so soon; this night dancing under neon blue.
A carriage ride to start the show; waving and smiling from below.
Hundreds of fans waving they're hands; screaming your name; showing your fame.
Flowers fall to the ground from cheering fans all around.
They're here for you; your dream come true.
To the stage you go; to start the show/
They sing your songs; everyone; Singing and dancing; twirling and prancing.
The last dance of the night wasn't right.
Don't stop the show; do not go.
A record night at the end of your life.
Too soon to stop; too soon to go; too soon to leave; no one knows.
WRITTEN BY SARAH,
Angel On Earth
To be an angel wings are not needed
Neither is a halo or immortality
To be an angel all you need is love
To lift someone's spirts higher
To wipe away tears
To hold another's hand
To walk them through their fears
Selena was an angel
An angel on Earth
She captivated hearts with the hum of her voice.
She was always there to listen
She was always first to help
She spread her love to everyone she touched
She was n angel amoung us, though not immortal
She should have lived forever, but nothing lasts that long.
Her short life was here waitig to be seen
Then, a single gunshot took her away from here
I want to be Selena
She was my dream
I want to be selena; everyone should be
I would have taken her fate if I could,
just so and angel we wouldn't lose.
Now, she is gone, and her story must live on.
I've widened my heart to make her a special place.
She will be there; I'll keep her safe.
To be Selena is the highest being on Earth.
Another angle like her doesn't exist here.
WRITTEN BY SARAH,
The Heart Of Tejano
On March 31 the heart of tejano stopped.
The rose fell to the ground
The beauty in her face changed forever that day
Her rosy cheeks drained to pale
Her eyes shut never to open again
The lips that once sang the songs we love; have been silent since this day.
Many years of struggle and triumph ended in a flash.
So close to their goal only to be snatched.
t started with a spark that grew into a flame.
But it's blown out now; i
it's dark all around.
The moo and the stars she wishedd upon still burn bright;
looking down on us all night.
On the stars up above we dreamt apart;
the same sky just different nights.
Her life was only a dream to m,
but she made it her reality.
I still can't believe she's no longer here.
She is always on my mind.
A part of her has growninside.
Year since her death I still cry,
but no one here understands why.
She is not just another person who had died.
She was above the rest of us all along,
with her love and her songs.
I wish I knew her;
I wish she was here;
I wish I could have stopped her death from coming near.
It's too late now; I cry my tears;
Looking up at the stars wondering if she's near.
I see her face so young and beautiful;
I see her heart in her smile, and the love it was full of.
Love for her family, friends, and all of her fans.
I can't believe that heart won't beat again.
In her eyes I remember her dream.
I see her in the moonlight dreaming of what could be,
and think of the difference one more year would have beeen..

WHY WASN'T SOMEONE WATCHING?
Why wasn't someone watching, when evil came to call,
Why couldn't something stop her, before her actions hurt us all?
Why wasn't someone watching, when her manipulation started,
Before she had the chance to leave us stunned and broken hearted?
Why wasn't someone watching, couldn't anybody see, Danger lurking, oh so close, this wasn't meant to be.
Why wasn't someone watching, over Selena on that day,
Why wasn't someone with her and why did she have to pay?
She had done nothing wrong, she was innocent and still,
Her life was taken, what happened to, "Thou Shalt Not
There's nothing left for us to do but shed a tear and
For she is gone and won't be back, it's so hard to
Why wasn't someone watching, why wasn't something done,
So we might not have lost her, so beautiful and young?
Although Selena's gone now, she's thought of everyday
But why wasn't someone watching, to protect her on her
Why wasn't someone watching?
Why wasn't someone.....?
Why?~~~~~~~~sent in by Carol firstname.lastname@example.org ~~`thanks so much for the poem carol ;-) ~

The White Rose
After hearing it on the radio and tv as a bucket of tears comes down everybodys faces.
As i find out the horriable news. I knew from that moment the last peddiel from the white rose fell.
Sitting in darkness, listening to a song, a special song,a quiet song, a sad song.
As I get up slowly and walk threw the candle light vidule. Thinking to myself why? where? when? how?
I knew from that moment the last peddle from the white rose fell.
Seeing her lay there in peace. Saying again to mysef why, why, why.
Shes there laying in that purple sparkly dress. I knew it was over from that moment.
I knew it was Selena my white rose.
Now I know the last peddle from the white rose fell..

REST IN PEACE OUR "QUEEN OF TEJANO"
A world of sadness on this tragic day of March 31, 1995.
The eyes of fans, friends, and family watched in silence as a shinning star fell to her death.
Tears falling from everyone's eyes, yelling and screaming from their mouths.
Selena was and still remains the only female to dominate Tejano music.
Her voice filled with grace, put a smile on everyone's face.
Her kind hear, warmth, and unique laugh made her a friend to all.
Her life cute short at the age of only twenty-three, but how could it be?
She believed in a dream and had the courage to make it come true, and for that, Selena will never be forgotten.
Her legacy will live on through her music and fans. As she rests in peace she rocks the heavens as she did down here.

"A WALKING DREAM THAT FADED TOO SOON"
LIVING FOR EVERYTHING SHE BELIEVED IN, NOT KNOWING IT WAS GOING TO END.
SELENA WAS LIKE A FLOWER THAT NEVER TURNED SOUR.
HER GRACE SWEPT EVERYONE OFF THEIR FEET, AS SHE DANCED TO HER LOVELY BEAT.
OUR QUEEN OF TEJANO, GONE FOREVER, BUT WILL WE FORGET HER? NEVER!
NO MATTER HOW FAR APART, SHE WILL REMAIN IN EVERYONE'S HEART.
SHE HAD SO MUCH LOVE, LIKE A SIMPLE WHITE DOVE. IT HAS BEEN SEVEN LONG YEARS WITHOUT OUR ANGEL
AND THE WORLD DOESNT FEEL THE SAME. THE DAY SHE LEFT US,
THERE WAS A WORLD FILLED WITH PAIN, BUT KNOWING SHE IS IN A BETTER PLACE, UNDERSTANDING IS SOMETHING THAT MANY HAVE NOT GAIN.
WE ALL WISH THIS DIDNT HAPPEN, BUT NOW ITS HER TIME TO REST IN PEACE.
YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MISSED AND REMEMBERED.SELENA QUINTANILLA-PEREZ (1971-1995)

JUST LIKE PRINCESS DIANA WAS AND STILL IS ENGLANDS ROSE
YOU WERE AND STILL ARE THE TEXAS ROSE
YOU WERE SO PRETTY AND YOU STILL ARE
I NEVER HAD THE CHANCE TO MEET YOU
I DID GET TO KNOW YOU FROM A FAR
JUST LIKE PRINCESS DIANA
YOUR CANDLE HAS BURNED OUT
LONG BEFORE YOUR LEGEND EVER WILL
JUST LIKE PRINCESS DIANA
YOU HOLD A PLACE IN MY HEART
FOR I KNOW WE WILL NEVER BE APART
I KEEP YOU ALIVE IN MY HOUSE
FAREWELL SELENA ~~~~poem sent in and written by Ja Nell Harris -email@example.com
Young Star...Selena'There once lived a young star,known by people near and far.
She had a great smile,nothing about her was vile.
This young star had a terrific voice,for best star, she was a wonderful choice.
The star was as beautiful as a rose,I don't see why she would've had foes.
But, she came to an untimely end,it was like losing a friend.
I, like others, will never forget her,the young star touched us forever.
Her name...Selena.--------by Mary Clark -----thanks for the poem mary
Oh Selena, how I think of you,
it makes me so blue.
You were a wonderful star,
to me, you're never far.
Your smile was bright,
it was like a light.
Oh Selena, you had great singing,
it was as pretty as a ring.
You've really touched my life,
what happened was more painful than a knife.
Oh Selena, I can't pick a favorite song,
it would take too long.
Oh Selena, I also get mad a lot,
I feel myself get hot.
What happened was so absurd,
it was the last thing you deserved.
Oh Selena, I often think of you,
and somehow I know you think of me too. ---sent in by Mary Clark
You will never be forgotten. You are loved by many and those
that don't know who you are will find out through your fans.
Selena we all love and miss you so. Why did you have to go
We hope Yolanda never forgets and we hope she lives in guilt for
the rest of her life. your beautiful song will never be forgotten.
your fans will call up radio stations and request your songs all
day until they are played. Selena we love you!!!!!!!!!!!
