We should be sad and heartbroken
But honestly, We're not
Yes, you've been taken away
But it'd be selfish, if that was our thought
The things you've been through
You've endured, suffering and pain
No matter what we feel, there's no way
We'd want you to go through that again
The heavens have spoken
The angels decided, it was time to go
