    A light went out on Earth for me
    The day we said goodbye
    And on that day a star was born,
    The brightest in the sky
    Reaching through the darkness
    With its rays of purest white
    Lighting up the Heavens
    As it once lit up my life
    With beams of love to heal
    The broken heart you left behind
    Where always in my memory
    Your lovely star will shine
