She was a beauty
In every way
She walked with us for a while
She left us today
The world seems empty
I start to cry
I look up into the stars
And can?t believe my eyes

Every light is turned on in heaven tonight
There?s a brand new angel whose gonna take flight
This feeling?s astounding
Her love is surrounding, sleep tight
Cause there?s a brand new angel
Watching over us tonight

That special smile
Could stop the rain
She wore the scars from her battle
But tried to hide the pain
Sometimes I question
God?s greater plan
But as I look in the sky
Now I understand


Now she laughs with the other angels
And she?ll be forever young
Peace and freedom ever after
She took that journey home
So don?t cry
Don?t ask why
