One by one, only the good die young February 15, 2016

Queen wrote this song a few years after Freddie Mercury died.

It describes so perfectly the people who, like Ashley, touch our lives for a precious few moments but leave us changed for the rest of our lives. Eight years ago today, Ashley left us all. And while we still feel the incredible loss, we “ain’t never sayin’ goodbye”.

One by one, only the good die young. Life goes on without you, but we’ll remember forever.

A hand above the water
An angel reaching for the sky
Is it raining in Heaven -
Do you want us to cry?

And everywhere the broken-hearted
On every lonely avenue
No-one could reach them
No-one but you

One by one
Only the Good die young
They’re only flyin’ too close to the sun
And life goes on -
Without you…

Another tricky situation
I get to drownin’ in the blues
And I find myself thinkin’
Well – what would you do?

Yes! – it was such an operation
Forever paying every due
Hell, you made a sensation
You found a way through – and

One by one
Only the Good die young
They’re only flyin’ too close to the sun
We’ll remember -
Forever…

And now the party must be over
I guess we’ll never understand
The sense of your leaving
Was it the way it was planned?

And so we grace another table
And raise our glasses one more time
There’s a face at the window
And I ain’t never, never sayin’ goodbye…

One by one
Only the Good die young
They’re only flyin’ too close to the sun
Cryin’ for nothing
Cryin’ for no-one
No-one but you

Queen

Watch this and think of all the smiles Ash brought to us, and the ones she still gives us when we think of her:
