I sit here all along feeling so empty and lonely
I think of you often, every minute of the day
Wondering how you are, what you are doing.

Wishing I could hold you

I sit remembering all we've shared
Dreaming of all that will be,
And crying a tear for every minute we are apart.

At times will tell myself I am strong
And the time apart will go quickly
Yet at another I sit and cry and wonder why.
I must hurt this way.

Though somewhere in the loneliness
Somewhere in the emptiness
I find myself feeling very loved
And I realize that it's not the loving that hurts so much
It's being without you...

The moment that you died, my heart split in two. One side filled with memories.
The other died with you. I often lay awake at night, when the world is fast
And take a walk down memory lane, with tears upon my cheeks,
Remembering you is easy, I do it every day. But missing you is heartache,
that never goes away. I hold you tightly within my heart, and there you will
Life has gone on without you, But never will be the same.

The tears are never ending...
although I've tried so hard
I smile through my sorrow...
Mask that I am scarred

I face each day without you...
Which hurts down to my core
I smile on the outside...
I've learned how to ignore

Although the years have moved on...
While others think I'm fine
I smile through my heartache...
I walk a thin straight line

As seasons change around me...
Snowflakes turn to rain
I smile through my teardrops...
I've learned to hide this pain

Each holiday ...each birthday...
Beginning the New Year...
I smile and keep asking...
Why is it you're not here?

In loving memory of Joey and his heavenly buddies

I don't need to worry
if he's staying out too late
or wonder where he is tonight
or if he is okay.

I don't need to worry
if he's eating what he should
or wonder if he's happy
or if he's being good.

I don't need to worry
if his car is running right
or wonder if he's careful
or if he's sleeping tight.

I don't need to worry
if he has a broken heart
or wonder if he's lonely
or if he'll fall apart.

I don't need to worry
if his money's running low
or wonder if he needs some help
or if he'll let me know.

I don't need to worry
if he's feeling really sick
of wonder if the medicine
will make his headache quit.

I don't need to worry
If he's going to die young
or wonder what his future holds

Because it has begun.
