I'm going to tell you something
I hope you'll never have to know.
I'll tell you how a heart can break
And tears can constant flow.
I lost my baby girl you see,
An angel in my eyes
God chose to take her hand one day
And led her to the skies.
But please do not forget my child
She was a person too
And forever she will live
Inside of me and you.
So, please don't ever tell me
That time will heal my pain
Because not even time
Can bring her back again.
Just tell me she is happy
In that land way up above
She's snuggled in an angels wings
All wrapped in Mommy's love.

shared through the child loss group
Friends may think that we have forgotten
When at times they see us smile
Little do they know the heartache
That our smile hides all the while.

Beautiful memories are wonderful
They last till the longest day
They never wear out, they never get lost
And can never be given away.

To some you may be forgotten
To others a part of the past
But to those who love and lost you
Your memory will always last!!

shared by Mary Ann

Like a flower still blooming,
you live in our hearts.
Like a candle still glowing,
you exist in our minds.
Like the very air we breathe in,
we can never do without you.
And just like a beautiful melody
you are our never-ending song,
a sweet serenade, muted on earth,
but loudly heard by our souls.
And as we face this mountain of grief,
our tears become a fountain of love,
soaring high into the heavens,
arms stretched to embrace you !

from Theresa
When you lose a child
Your whole world is shattered
Your hopes & dreams are crushed
Your heart is broken
Your life is forever changed
You feel as though you will never again find a moment of happiness
And then one day you finally do smile again
But suddenly you feel guilty
As if you are somehow forgetting your angel
And then you realize it was your precious child who gave you that smile
Just to say "I love you"

from Theresa
Go and run free with the angels,
Dance around the golden clouds,
For the Lord has chosen you to be with him,
and we should feel nothing but proud.

Even though He has taken you from us,
and our pain a lifetime will last.
Your memory will never escape us,
But make us glad for the time we did have.

Your smiles will be forever hidden deep inside our hearts,
And each moment you gave us never will depart.
So go and run free with the angels,
As they smile so tenderly,
And please be sure to tell them to take good care of you...

For me.

A child's a plaything for an hour;
Its pretty tricks we try
For that or for a longer space -
Then tire, and lay it by.
But I knew one that to itself
All seasons could control;
That would have mock's the sense of pain
Out of a grieved soul.

Thou straggler into loving arms,
Young climber-up of knees
When I forget thy thousand ways
Then life and all shall cease.

Mary Lamb 1765-1847

I Will Always Love You
Whitney Houston

My minds front yard is wild with weeds
Fear, hurt, sorrow
Will you help me pluck them out,
Mop down despair,
Plant seeds of peace.
Watch flowers of joy
Bloom in the spring of our lives?

I Never Had A Chance

I never had a chance,
To kiss you one last time
I never had a chance,
To help you take that climb.

I never had a chance,
To hold you tight
I never had a chance,
To help you through the fight.

I never had a chance,
To say how I love you
I never had a chance,
To hear you say, I Love You Too.

I never had a chance,
To show you how I cared
I never had a chance,
To tell you I was scared.

I never had a chance,
To say Good-bye.
Please Forgive Me,
While I Cry.

When we have done all the work we were sent to do,
we are allowed to shed our bodies,
which imprisons our soul like a cocoon encloses the butterfly
and when the time is right we can let go of it.
Then we will be free of pain,
free of fears and free of worries--
free as a beautiful butterfly returning home to God....

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
