A Child's Farewell


Mommy, Daddy, please don't weep,

God has called me in my sleep.

I just looked up and above me I see

my guardian angel, smiling at me.

Her eyes were of the brightest blue,

and Mommy -

she was as pretty as you.

She held me to her bossom and away we flew.


We rode a rainbow and touched a star,

Then she took me to a land of endless tomorrows.

There Jesus said, "your journey is through",

and Daddy -

He was as strong as you.


He held me in his arms and through Heaven we strolled,

And it was a playground of silver and gold.

Then He sat with me beneath a tree

Where He had a lamb waiting just for me.


So Mommy, Daddy,

Please don't cry.

The next time you see me

There will be no goodbye.

Miss You

I miss you in the morning, dear
When all the world is new;
I know the day can bring no joy
Because it brings not you.
I miss the well-loved voice of you,
Your tender smile for me,
The charm of you, the joy of your
Unfailing sympathy.
The world is full of folks, it's true,
But there was only one of you.

I miss you at the noontide, dear;
The crowded city street
Seems but a desert now, I walk
In solitude complete.
I miss your hand beside my own,
The light touch of your hand,
The quick gleam in the eyes of you
So sure to understand.
The world is full of folks, it's true,
But there was only one of you.

I miss you in the evening, dear,
When daylight fades away;
I miss the sheltering arms of you
To rest me from the day.
I try to think I see you yet,
There where the firelight gleams--
Weary, at last, I sleep, and still
I miss you in my dreams.
The world is full of folks, it's true,
But there was only one of you.

If We Could Have You Back


If we could have you back
for just one day,
there would be so many things
we would like to say.
If we could just be with you
for one whole day,
to have you close and know
that you really are okay.
If only we had known
that you would be gone forever.
If only we had known
all those ties were going to be severed.
If only we had known the pain, the loss,
and the ache to come our way.
If only we never knew the difference
life without you would make.
In the darkness of your pain
you slipped away from us all.
Now it's just your memories
that we have to recall.
They say that parting is such sweet sorrow,
but it's the longing, the wondering,
and how to cope with tomorrow.
They say that grieving a child is the very worst,
because life's plan
is that the parents should go first.
Now all we have are memories,
the good times that we had.
We spend so much time in tears
and pain and feeling sad.
If we could have you back for just one day,
you could let us know
how to cope until that judgement day,
when we'll be together as a family once again,
when we'll all be happy
and free from all this pain.
It's so hard to live when your child has to die,
for then we spend our lifetime
trying to say Goodbye!


Looking Down From Heaven


I'm looking down from Heaven Mommy
I don't like to see you cry
I remember how you loved me
I did not want to say good-bye.

I don't ever get very lonely
At night Jesus rocks me to sleep
I play with the other little Angels
From cloud to cloud we leap.

There's a new little Angel here
His Mommy is very sad
Her heart is surely broken
And like you, she hurts so bad.

Could you do something for me Mommy?
If it's not to much to ask?
You were always so gentle and kind to me
So I know you are up to the task.

You see, I'm trying to help this Angel
He misses his Mommy so
And as we look down
together from Heaven
There's something you should know.

We will soon be all together
But there is time to pass till then
Could you hold her a little while
And try to be her friend?

We don't like to see you crying
Up here in Angel Land
So instead of pointing fingers,
Could you please just take her hand?

It will make us both feel better,
As we look down from up above,
If you all are holding up each other
And remembering us with love.

A Name for My Pain

I have given a name to my pain-
it's called "Longing."
I long for what was,
and what might have been
I long for his touch and smell so sweat;
I long to hold him one more time.
I long to look on his beautiful face
and impress it upon my memories and heart.
I long to return to the day before
and protect him from his death.
I long to take his place,
so he may live and have sons too.
I long for time to pass much faster,
so my longing and pain will lessen?
Will they?

The moment that you died,
Our hearts split in two,
The one side filled with memories,
The other died with you.
We often lay awake at night,
When the world is fast asleep,
And take a walk down memory lane,
With tears upon our cheeks.
Remembering you is easy,
We do it every day,
But missing you is a heartache,
That never goes away.
We hold you tightly within our hearts,
And there you will remain,
Life has gone on without you,
But it never will be the same.
For those who still have their children,
Treat them with tender care,
You will never know the emptiness,
As when you turn and their not there.

Word from an angel above

I have not turned my back on you,
So there is no need to cry.
I'm watching you from Heaven,
Just beyond the morning sky.
I've seen you almost fall apart,
When you could barely stand.
I asked the Lord to comfort you,
And watched him take your hand.
He told me you are in more pain,
Than I could ever be.
He wiped his eyes and swallowed hard,
Then gave your hand to me.
Although you may not feel my touch,
Or see me by your side.
I've whispered that I love you,
While I wiped each tear you cried.
So please try not to ache for me,
We'll meet again one day.
Beyond the dark and stormy sky,
A rainbow lights the way.

Mommy, please donīt look so sad,

and Mommy please donīt cry,

Iīm in the arms of Jesus

and he sings me lullabies.

Donīt thing this Godīs unkind,

donīt think He sent me down to you

and then He changed His mind.

You know, Iīm such a spechial child,

Iīm needed up upove,

A special gift you gave to Him

the product of much love.

Iīm always near you

watching the sky at night,

find the brightest star thatīs gleaming

thatīs my haloīs brilliant light.

Youīll see me in the morning frost,

that mist your windwopane.

Thatīs me in summer showers,

dancing in the rain.

When you feel a little breeze,

a gentle wind that blows,

Thatīs just me and Iīll be there

planting a kiss on your nose.

When you see children playing

and your heart feels a little tug,

Itīs me, Iīll be there,

giving you a a little hug.

So Mommy, please donīt look so sad,

and Mommy do not cry,

I went straight to Jesus bossom,

and he sings me lullabies.

Angel in my pocket

I am a tiny angel..
I'm smaller than youre thumb;
I live in people's pockets,
That's where I have my fun...
I dont suppose You've seen me,
I'm to tiny to detect;
Though I'm with you all the time,
I doubt we've ever met.
Before I was a angel...
I was a fairy in a flower;
God Himself, hand-picked me,
And he gave me Angel power.
Now that God has many Angels
That he trains in Angel pools;
we become his eyes,and ears,and hands..
We become his special tools.
And God is so busy,
With way to much to do;
He said that my asignment
was to keep close watch on you.
Then he tucked me in your pocket,
Blessing you with Angel care;
Saying I must never leave you,
And I vowed to stay right there!


Desperately, helplessly, longingly, I cried:
Quietly, patiently, lovingly God replied.
I pled and I wept for a clue to my fate,
And the Master so gently said, "Child, you must wait."
"Wait? You say, wait! " my indignant reply.
"Lord, I need answers, I need to know why!
Is your hand shortened? Or have you not heard?
By Faith, I have asked, and am claiming your Word.
My future and all to which I can relate
hangs in the balance, and YOU tell me to WAIT?
I'm needing a 'yes', a go-ahead sign,
or even a 'no' to which I can resign.
And Lord, You promised that if we believe
we need but to ask, and we shall receive.
And Lord, I've been asking, and this is my cry:
I'm weary of asking! I need a reply!
Then quietly, softly, I learned of my fate
As my Master replied once again, "You must wait."
So, I slumped in my chair, defeated and taut
and grumbled to God, "So, I'm waiting.... for what?"
He seemed, then, to kneel, and His eyes wept with mine,
And he tenderly said, "I could give you a sign.
I could shake the heavens, and darken the sun.
I could raise the dead, and cause mountains to run.
All you seek, I could give, and pleased you would be.
You would have what you want~~But, you wouldn't know Me.
You'd not know the depth of My love for each saint;
You'd not know the power that I give to the faint;
You'd not learn to see through the clouds of despair;
You'd not learn to trust just by knowing I'm there;
You'd not know the joy of resting in Me
When darkness and silence were all you could see.
You'd never experience that fullness of love
As the peace of My Spirit descends like a dove;
You'd know that I give and I save.... (for a start),
But you'd not know the depth of the beat of My heart.
The glow of My comfort late into the night,
The faith that I give when you walk without sight,
The depth that's beyond getting just what you asked
Of an infinite God, who makes what you have LAST.
You'd never know, should your pain quickly flee,
What it means that "My grace is sufficient for Thee."
Yes, your dreams for your loved one overnight would come true,
But, Oh, the Loss! If I lost what I'm doing in you!
So, be silent, My Child, and in time you will see
That the greatest of gifts is to get to know Me.
And though oft' may My answers seem terribly late,
My most precious answer of all is still, "Wait."

To Where You Are

Who can say for certain
Maybe your still here
I feel you all around me
Your memories so clear

Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
Your still an inspiration
Can it be
That you are mine
Forever love
And you are watching over me from up above

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distanst star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
to know your there
A breath aways not far
To where you are
Are you gently sleeping
Here inside my dreams
And isn't faith believeing
All powers can't be seen
As my heart holds you
Just one beat away
I cherish all you gave me
Cause you are mine
Forever love
Watching me from up above
And I believe
That angels breathe
And that love will live on and never leave

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
To know your there
A breath aways not far
To where you are
I know your there
A breath aways not far
To where you are

~~~ Paul Groban ~~~

We thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday,
And the days before that too.
We think of you in silence,
We often speak your name,
All we have now are memories,
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake,
With which we will never part;
God has you in his keep,
We have you in our heart.
It broke our heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone,
For a part of us went with you...
The day God took you home.

A Penny from heaven ...

I found a penny today
Just lying on the ground,
but it's not just a penny
This little coin I've found.

Found pennies come from heaven
That's what my grandpa told me,
He said angels toss them down
Oh,how I loved that story.

He said when an angel misses you
They toss a penny down,
Sometimes to cheer you up
To make a smile out of your frown
So don't pass by a penny when you're feeling blue,
It may be a penny from heaven
That an angel's tossed to you

Little one, little one

Little one,little one,
Where have you gone?
Your going has darkened
The brightest dawn.

Why did you leave us
so soon, so soon?
Where can we look for you?
Over the moon?
On butterflies wings?
In a heart of a rose?
Where a little one goes?

Where I have gone,
I am not so small.
My soul is as wide
As the world is tall.
I have gone to answer
The call, The call,
Of the one who takes
Care of us all.

Where ever you look,
You will find me there--
In the heart of a rose,
In the heart of a prayer.
On butterflies wings
On wings of my own,
To you, I am gone,
But I'm never alone--
I'm over the moon.
I am home.
