Ever since I heard the news
I’ve been feeling so emotional
She left this earth far too soon
My loss so inconsolable.

All the times she laughed out loud
Are ringing thru my mind
I can’t forget the things she said
When I saw her one last time.

Wishing she was with me
Someone I could turn to
Someone to hang out with
Now I don’t know what to do.

She had a way about her
She could always make me laugh
Now all that I am left with
Is a faded photograph.

They say the best way to go
Close your eyes, just fall asleep
She was spared the agony
At least now, she is at peace.
