 The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
But one special stocking was no longer there
All that was left were memories bittersweet
Of a life that had ended so incomplete

The family had pictures all gathered around
That sometimes made all of them tear up and frown
For the sorrow and sadness without their sweet child
Made it so very difficult for the family to smile

Although there were times when they felt him(her) so close
As if they were feeling some kind of a ghost
The signs that were sent were so special and clear
They felt that he(she) truly was so very near

They often would talk to him(her) as if he(she) was there
Sometimes they would smile but also shed tears
For each Christmas that came brought with it such pain
That they felt in their hearts would always remain

Then one special moment on one special day
He(She) came to them and simply took them away
They flew through the heavens and up to the stars
A beautiful place that was not very far

He(She) showed them where they would all join once again
A place full of beauty ...no sorrow or pain
A place where he's (she's) happy with heavenly friends
A place where he (she ) told them we all do ascend

After their wondrous visit was through
This family was no longer terribly blue
For they finally realized one day not to far
They would all be together on a heavenly star

In loving memory of Joey and his heavenly buddies

From Linda Rice
 
From Karen Jenkins

Christmas is coming....
tears are shed each day
Another year behind me...
another on it's way

I haven't found it easier...
as years have passed me by
While others think I'm over you...
In private I still cry

I miss you every moment...
memories are bittersweet
Without you here beside me...
life is not complete

I wont let others see it...
I've learned to mask it well
Living on with daily grief...
Is something I don't tell

Christmas is coming....
Somehow I'll make it through
Remembering past Christmases...
when holidays held you

In loving memory of Joey and his heavenly buddies

Thank You Linda Rice



            Holiday season is reason enough...
for more tears and heartache, it's terribly tough
Harder than ever with holiday cheer
One more day in another long year

I listen to songs that bring back memories
See all the lights lit up on the trees
It causes such sorrow when you are the one...
without your sweet daughter or handsome young son

Looking for someone to make this wrong right
Gazing at snow as it falls through the night
Watching while others await Christmas Eve...
knowing full well for your child you do grieve

No one remembers... nobody cares
Maybe it's just that they're so unaware
Pain that is present throughout all the year...
makes the holiday season harder to bear

Inside I am weeping... outside I just mask
Missing and wishing while nobody asks
Not one word is mentioned about my sweet child...
so I keep trying to live in denial

Words that have cut right down to my soul
Get over ... move on... your grief has control
I know if they lived with this loss they would be...
unfortunately able to understand me

So while I await the holiday with tears
I will try to remember the wonderful years
When the holiday had promise of sweet happiness
Instead of the child I so dearly miss

In loving memory of Joey and his heavenly buddies

Thank you Debi

Dear Santa can you see me
with tears upon my face
A heart so badly broken
missing his embrace

As I write this letter
to express my only wish
Dear Santa please remember
only one gift on my list

His smile and his laughter
His hugs and kisses too
Dear Santa I am pleading
To make my wish come true

I haven't been quite perfect
I've tried the best I can
but seeing you are Santa...
you might just change the plan

Each day I wake to sorrow
Pain that I can't flee
Dear Santa I am asking
Could you bring him back to me?

It's been so many years now...
sometimes as if he was a dream
Dear Santa please consider...
changing this life theme

Dear Santa could you find it...
within your kind warm heart
To bring him home for Christmas...
so we are not apart?

In loving memory of Joey and his heavenly buddies

                                           Dear Mommy

                                          
                                           Look outside it's snowing
                                           Oh Mommy can we play?
                                           Can we build a snowman
                                           Can we sled all day?
 
                                           Will you help us make it?
                                           Will Daddy help us too
                                           Oh, do I love Christmas
                                           And I know that you do too
 
                                           Santa Claus is coming
                                           Bringing gifts our way
                                           Hanging stockings by the fire
                                           On this Our Christmas Day.
 
                                           Love, Your son Joey
                                                   
 
 
 

Ornaments all packed away
Labeled fragile handle with care
As I open up the special box...
It has been another difficult year

I The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
But one special stocking was no longer there
All that was left were memories bittersweet
Of a life that had ended so incomplete

The family had pictures all gathered around
That sometimes made all of them tear up and frown
For the sorrow and sadness without their sweet child
Made it so very difficult for the family to smile

Although there were times when they felt him(her) so close
As if they were feeling some kind of a ghost
The signs that were sent were so special and clear
They felt that he(she) truly was so very near

They often would talk to him(her) as if he(she) was there
Sometimes they would smile but also shed tears
For each Christmas that came brought with it such pain
That they felt in their hearts would always remain

Then one special moment on one special day
He(She) came to them and simply took them away
They flew through the heavens and up to the stars
A beautiful place that was not very far

A place where he (she ) told them we all do ascend

After their wondrous visit was through
This family was no longer terribly blue
For they finally realized one day not to far
They would all be together on a heavenly star
