Do you see her face, the lonely with after taste of sorrow,
Do you see how she looks at you?
All she wanted was the truth.
Could you? Would you spare her the agony given the chance?

All she wanted was to be accepted.
All she needed was your love.
You see right through her sleepless nights.
Cold hearts awaken from the tears when she cries.
If you knew then what you know now,
 would you have stopped her?

But why all these lonely nights of confusion and sorrow.
Lifeless love, giftless minds, and soul-less eyes.
She waits for someone to call her name from the dark.
For the dimmer light to appear, in front of her darker eyes.
If angels were real wouldn't they save her?

So many unanswered questions.
So many ungranted wishes,
So many empty tears.
With lifeless years.

You wonder how someone could be so happy yet so tormented.
All the past mistakes, all the past ghosts wandering in her mind.
Without meaning there is no life, without life there is no meaning.
How could we be so blind to her feelings.

Very well done.
This part confuses me- Do you see her face, the lonely with after taste of sorrow, the" with after taste of sorrow" doesn't make sense to me.

Very, very good.

One little thing. I would end the last line with a question mark. But that is just me.
