  1. Why did she have to go? So young I just don’t know why things happen half the time without reason without rhyme. Lovely, sweet young woman daughter, wife and mother. Makes no sense to me I just have to believe she flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels by the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees. She walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting. And I know she’s smiling saying don’t worry ’bout me Loved ones she left behind just trying to survive and understand the why. Feeling so lost inside anger shot straight at God then asking for His love. Empty with disbelief just hoping that maybe she flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels by the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees. She walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting. And I know she’s smiling saying don’t worry ’bout me It’s hard to say goodbye. Her picture in my mind will always be of times I’ll cherish and I won’t cry ’cause she flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels by the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees. She walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting And I know she’s smiling saying don’t worry ’bout me …
