"I Hear Each Tear"

My mom doesn't know I'm watching her,
but I'm watching her just the same.
And I hear each tear fall on her face
at the mention of my name.

She says it sounds like music to her ears
and can be heard over a crowd.
Oh, I hear each tear fall on her face,
when my name is said aloud.

I watch her stumble through each day
as she wishes the day would end.
And I hear each tear fall on her face
as she talks of me with her friends.

But there are few who truly understand.
Oh this I've heard her proclaim,
and I hear each tear fall on her face
will my mom ever be the same?

I know that her smile can light up a sky,
But I don't see that smile today.
Oh, but I hear each tear fall on her face,
Her blue skies have turned gray.

Oh I send to her my warmest hug
with the rays of the morning sun.
Then I won't hear a tear fall on her face,
for I shall erase them one by one.

Yes, my mom doesn't know I'm watching her,
But I'm watching her just the same.
And if I hear a tear fall on her face
I'll just softly mention her name.


                                                         The Day After

It's the day after Christmas, and yes, I'm alive...

Oh God, Please tell me...How did I survive?

I managed to smile and also to laugh,

But deep down inside, my heart's torn in half.

I look at my son, so healthy and strong

Yet my poor little Jamie, left us tired and worn.

Cancer had struck her, too young and too fast

She couldn't stay with us, but her pain is now past.

I thank you dear Lord, for my son and his strength.

Let him lean on Your shoulder and rely on your grace.

He needs You to guide him through his anger and pain,

to realize that his sister, is happy again.

He needs to know that she's in a better place,

Away from her pain, with a smile on her face.

There can be no guilt, when a spirit's set free,

He needs to know that it's a place we'll all see.

He's handsome and loving and healthy and strong,

Help him to know that he did nothing wrong.

He loved her, she loved him, We all did it right.

He has to accept that she just said "goodnight"

No questions, no "what ifs", no "only if I"...

She just took Your hand and flew into the sky.

She's happy, she's smiling, she suffers no more;

We thank You and praise You, for letting her step through Your door.

Keep Your hands on Mike's shoulders

and make him stay strong.

Let his love for his sister, keep him moving along.

We'll never forget her; She'll always be in our hearts.

If You stay close beside us, we'll never be apart.

                                                    In Memory Of Jamie

My child has left me, I feel so alone.

She came in with a smile and now she is gone.

I have Cowey and Lamby to sleep with at night

They don't replace her, they just comfort my fright.

Everyday I feel happy because she has no more pain

But without her Dear God, will I ever be whole again?

The life I had known will never come back

Is my baby with You???  Does she ever look back???

I miss her smile and her hugs and her touch

Will I ever get past this?  Am I asking too much???

I know she is safe and warm in Your arms

I know she's away from life's pain and life's harm

But help me dear Jesus, to trust you complete

My heart's in Your hands and my pain is so deep.

I just ask You to give me the strength for the rest

My son is my life and my hope...He's the best

He keeps me alive when I want to give up

He's my shining star, so I'll never give up

As long as You love us, we'll get through it all

You are our life and hope; You're in our soul

Sweet Jesus, take care of our sweet baby girl

We love You forever and she's now in Your world

I know You just loaned her to us for awhile

But please, in our dreams, let us see her sweet smile

We loved her so much; not as much as You did

But as humans we loved her so much; we sure did

Dear Lord, please lead us through this pain that we have

We know that our baby is safe in Your hands

Your love is our comfort, You've always been here

Just send us her smile, so we feel like she's near.

When tomorrow starts without me,
And I’m not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes,
... All filled with tears for me.

I wish so much you wouldn’t cry,
The way you do each day,
While thinking of the many things,
We didn’t get to say.

I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you;
And each time that you think of me,
Please know I miss you, too.

But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That an Angel came and called my name,
And took me by the hand.

The Angel said a place was ready,
In heaven up above;
And that I’d have to leave behind,
All those I truly love.

I had so much to live for,
So much yet to do.
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.

When tomorrow starts without me,
Don’t think we’re far apart;
For every time you think of me,
I’m right here in your heart.
