"If tomorrow starts without me, And I'm not there to see, If the sun should rise and find your eyes All filled with tears for me; I wish so much you wouldn't cry The way you did today, While thinking of the many things, We didn't get to say. I know how much you love me, As much as I love you, And each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too; But when tomorrow starts without me, Please try to understand, That an angel came and called my name, And took me by the hand, And said my place was ready, In heaven far above, And that I'd have to leave behind All those I dearly love. But as I turned to walk away, A tear fell from my eye, For all my life, I'd always thought, I didn't want to die. I had so much to live for, So much left yet to do, It seemed almost impossible, That I was leaving you. I thought of all the yesterdays, The good ones and the bad, I thought of all that we shared, And all the fun we had. If I could relive yesterday, Just even for a while, I'd say good-bye and kiss you And maybe see you smile. But then I fully realized, That this could never be, For emptiness and memories, Would take the place of me. And when I thought of worldly things, I might miss some tomorrow, I thought of you, and when I did, My heart was filled with sorrow. But when I walked through heaven's gates, I felt so much at home. When God looked down and smiled at me, From His great golden throne, He said, "This is eternity, And all I've promised you." Today your life on earth is past, But here life starts anew. I promise no tomorrow, But today will always last, And since each day is the same way, There's no longing for the past. So when tomorrow starts without me, Don't think we're far apart, For every time you think of me, I'm right here, in your heart "

 

I never will be over it
Wish you'd understand
That when you lose a child
It's not what God had planned

My tears will last forever...
Although I hide them well
Living here without him
Is surely more like hell

Somehow I keep it locked away
No one has found the key
Unless of course you share this loss...
then it is you and me

For if you've never felt it
Don't judge or say a word
You better think it over...
Your words will sound absurd

It's a loss so deep and endless
No words rightly express
When you've lost your child
Your world becomes a mess

The moral of this story...
that I wish did not exist
Although I've learned to hide it all...
My sorrow still persists

I believe in a place...

A place where we are free from pain and sorrow
A place where there is truthfully no tomorrows
A place to find our children that have left before
A place where our spirit will gently soar
A place of beauty and tranquility
A place where we will have humility
A place that we will call Heaven Above
A place where we will cherish and love
A place where sadness will all cease
A place to finally rest in peace
A place where we will be set free
A place.... someday that we will be

In loving memory of Joey and his heavenly buddies

"The Reason"

I'm not a perfect person
There's many things I wish I didn't do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I'm sorry that I hurt you
It's something I must live with everyday
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
Thats why i need you to hear

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is You

and the reason is You [x3]

I'm not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I've found a reason to show
A side of me you didn't know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you
