Those we love don’t go away
We remember them in our hearts each day
Though the days be hard to take
And words can’t put the hurt away
Smile, from memories they’ve made.
Smile, for battles they’ve won.
Smile, for where they’ve gone.
They’ve gone to struggle no more.
TO THE CHILDREN WHOSE LIGHTS WERE DIMMED TOO SOON…
If I could make my way to the heavens
I would bring you back to earth
For you left too quickly
Your lights doused without a sign
No cuddles to show our love
Our hearts bleed for you
Our eyes still search for you
Our arms are empty and bereft
No laughter since you left
But I know your new family above
On you, joy and happiness, will bestow.
