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
And 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
And 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
They'll 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
And she walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting
And I know she's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me
Don't worry 'bout me
Don't worry 'bout me

    My mom passed away on December 18, 2008 and I dedicate this song to her. I miss her more than words can say. We were very close and lived together for years. She built her house on to ours. She left us so peacefully I know she is with the Lord and saying the same thing to us: "Don't Worry About Me". She will always be with me forever in my heart. Love ya, Mom.

    Sissy's Song wos the first song I heard within minutes of being told my daughter of my heart had passed away during the night of June 20th. This is so Leellyn. I know she's picking wild flowers behind the rainbow saying don't worry 'bout me while she waits for us to come and join her. A beautiful woman inside and out. She was an amazing woman who had finally recovered from a brutal marriage and had regained her internal spirit. I love her so much and I feel her loss so much. I know she flew to heaven on the wings of angels. Alan. Thank you for giving us this woderful message of comfort.

    I just found out what this song was made for and bravo alan! I wish the song was made before my mom died, I would have played this at the funeral. She was on life support due to multipal organ failure and pnumonia. We took her off Life support and lowered her pain meds long enough for her to see my brother who just arrived from Iraq. She died 3 minutes later.

    This song reminds me of my baby girl who was only 17 when she decided it was time to go. She had the roughest life but knew that I would always be there for her. Then the one day I wasnt there I got the call that this mother, daughter, and my soon to be wife had left us to return to the arms of her one and only father, the ever present God.
