Beautiful Soul

By Joseph Sedgwick

A life too long in many ways

Found yourself counting down the days

An empty heart with no resolutions

Losing your desire to illusions

Thinking about the last time I saw you

Hiding among the boxes of despair 

 

You were there and in the blink of an eye

I will never know the reasons why

  

With the angels surrounding you 

I can see your face

Your lonely embrace

Touching the hearts of many my friend 

Why do the most beautiful souls 

Always die in the end

 

There must’ve been much pain and sorrow

Darkness behind a veil of smiles my friend

As I only saw a snapshot of your life

What could’ve gone so wrong in the end

 

Was life lived too long in many ways

Found yourself counting the days

You were alone and in the blink of an eye

I will never no the reasons why

 

With the angels surrounding you 

I can see your face

Your lonely embrace

Touching the hearts of many my friend 

Why do the most beautiful souls 

Always die in the end
