IF I KNEW IF I KNEW IT WOULD BE THE LAST TIME THAT I'D SEE YOU FALL ASLEEP I WOULD TUCK YOU IN MORE TIGHTLY AND PRAY THE LORD,YOUR SOUL TO KEEP. IF I KNEW IT WOULD BE THE LAST TIME THAT I'D SEE YOU WALK OUT THE DOOR I WOULD GIVE YOU A HUG AND KISS AND CALL YOU BACK FOR ONE MORE IF I KNEW IT WOULD BE THE LAST TIME I'D HEAR YOUR VOICE LIFTED UP IN PRAISE I WOULD VIDEO TAPE EACH ACTION AND WORD, SO I COULD PLAY THEM BACK DAY AFTER DAY. IF I KNEW IT WOULD BE THE LAST TIME I COULD SPARE AN EXTRA MINUTE TO STOP AND SAY I LOVE YOU INSTEAD OF ASSUMING YOU WOULD KNOW I DO. IF I KNEW IT WOULD BE THE LAST TIME I'D BE THERE TO SHARE YOUR DAY, WELL I'M SURE YOU'LL HAVE SO MANY MORE SO I CAN JUST THIS ONE SLIP AWAY FOR SURELY THERE'S ALWAYS TOMORROW TO MAKE UP FOR AN OVERSIGHT AND WE CAN GET A SECOND CHANCE TO MAKE EVERYTHING JUST RIGHT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE ANOTHER DAY TO SAY THAT "I LOVE YOU" AND CERTAINLY THERE'S ANOTHER CHANCE TO SAY OUR "ANYTHING I CAN DO"? BUT IN CASE I MIGHT BE WRONG AND TODAY IS ALL I GET I'D LIKE TO SAY HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU AND HOPE WE NEVER FORGET. SENT AS A GIFT (UNKNOWN)

 

SOMEDAY SOMEDAY IT WON'T HURT SO BAD AND I'LL BE ABLE TO SMILE AGAIN. SOMEDAY,THE TEARS WON'T FLOW QUITE AS FREELY WHENEVER I THINK OF WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN SOMEDAY THE ANSWERS TO"WHY" AND "IF" WON'T BE QUITE AS IMPORTANT SOMEDAY,I'LL BE ABLE TO USE WHAT YOUR DEATH HAS TAUGHT ME TO HELP OTHER WITH THEIR GRIEF SOMEDAY I'LL BE HEALED ENOUGH TO HELP CELEBRATE YOUR LIFE AS MUCH AS I NOW DWELL ON YOUR DEATH AND SOMEDAY, MAYBE TOMORROW, I'LL LEARN TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE BUT FOR TODAY...I THINK I'LL JUST BE SAD Steven L.

ONE LAST KISS

......by Christine Ross in memory of Lucas Christopher Ross 1979 - 2001

Oh, there you are,
So still, so cold.
No more breathing,
No growing old.

As I touch you,
Nothing is real.
Your skin is cold,
Your body still.

My eyes see you.
My heart wonders,
Beneath this shell,
Do you slumber?

I listen close,
No sound from you.
I whisper soft,
My voice eludes.

Air engulfs you,
Frigid and stale.
I breathe in deep,
Capture your smell.

Upon your lips,
I press my own.
The taste of death,
It lingers strong.

Lips cold and sealed.
Your life dismissed.
Tears warm your face,
With ONE LAST KISS.

Last night while I was trying to sleep My son’s voice did I hear. I opened my eyes and looked around, But he did not appear. He said: Mom you’ve got to listen, You’ve got to understand; God didn’t take me from you, Mom He only took my hand. When I called out in pain that day, The instant that I died. He reached down and touched my hand, And pulled me to His side. He pulled me up and saved me, From... the misery and the pain. My body was so badly hurt, I could never be the same. My search is really over now, I’ve found happiness within; All the answers to empty dreams, And all that might have been. I love you all and miss you so, And I’ll always be nearby. My body’s gone forever But my spirit will never die! And so, you must all go on now, Live one day at a time,ust understand! God did not take me from you, He only took my hand.

I've slipped away in silence...
Into a world unknown
Where pain  lives on inside me
Where I am all alone

Sorrow unforgiving
Deep  within my soul
Without you here beside me
I live some strange new  role

Silence often  deafens
Screams that can't be heard
Madness lives inside me
Without a  single word

Forge on as though some duty
Keep very close control
As  if I'm not affected
Waiting for parole

When tears come to the  forefront
crashing down like waves
Sorrow grabs me tightly
Again I am  it's slave

I try to keep it silent
As though it's some disease
No  one wants to witness
So silently I plead

I silently continue
With  this dreaded thief
Silently in silence...
This never ending  grief

In loving memory of Joey and his heavenly buddies

I sit safe in heaven and watch you everyday, I try and  let you know with signs, I never went away! I hear when your laughing, and watch you as you sleep, I even place my arms around you when you sleep, To calm you as you weep. I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home so I try to send you signs, so you know your not alone! Don't feel guilty tht you have a life that was denied to me, heven is truly beatiful just you wait and see! so live your life, laugh again! enjoy yourself, be free then I'll know with every breath you take you I be taking one for me Rosa mother of Omar

 

I will forever wish....

Always adore...

Truly miss you...

to my  core

 

I will forever grieve...

Long for you...

Wish this  nightmare...

were untrue

 

I will forever question...

Wonder  why...

Wear my mask...

and deny

 

I will forever wonder

What life  would be...

If only you were

here with me

 

I will forever  cry...

endless tears...

That have not lessened...

In all these  years

 

In loving memory of Joey and his heavenly buddies Lyndy
