Beautiful Girl

Beautiful girl, Alicia

Why did you have to leave?

You couldn’t see the love

Of all who are left behind to grieve

Beautiful girl, there’s a river of tears

Loved ones have wept in pain

Our hearts’ are sadly broken

Our lives will never be the same

And one can’t understand the darkness

That creeps into a troubled mind

Or the demons that torment you

Into leaving this world behind

If good can come from tragedy

As a troubled soul leaves this world

Will the boy who can see, know that

His eyes once belonged to a beautiful girl?

The soft spoken gentle one

With a smile to melt your heart

Carefree on the streets of Heaven

Driving a stick-shift car

So, too soon you’ve taken angels wings

And left this earthly world

But may your flower, Azalea always know

Her mother was a beautiful girl.
