Not like died because of its charge — permanently died. I'm not the only one whom this has happened to, I'm sure, and this isn't a complaint.

How Beautiful
 
Oh, how beautiful
The stars tonight
My lovely
Shining so bright
My lovely
How beautiful

Oh, how beautiful
This child's eyes
Brimming with hope
My lovely
How beautiful

Oh, how beautiful
Butterfly's wings
Shimmering with grace
My lovely
How beautiful

Oh, how beautiful
This music of joy
Ministering to the weak
My lovely

Oh, how beautiful
This marvelous light
My lovely
Illuminating hearts
My lovely

Oh, how beautiful
This love of mine
My lovely
Cleansing you
My lovely
How beautiful you are
