The White Rose
image She was only a little white rose,

A sweet little flower from birth;

God took her home to heaven

Before she was soiled on earth.


We miss her love and sweet little ways;

With her we spent our happiest days;

In memory we see her the same;

As long as we live, we'll cherish her name.

I'm Everywhere

Please don't mourn for me I'm still here,
though you don't see I'm right by your
side each night and day
And within your heart I long to stay
My body is gone but I'm always near
I'm everything you feel, see or hear
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
As long as you keep me alive in your heart
I'll never wander out of your sight
I'm the brightest star on a summer night
I'll never be beyond your reach
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach
I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
And the pure white snow that blankets the ground
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond
The clear cool water in a quiet pond
I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in spring
The first warm raindrop that April will bring
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine
And you'll see that the face in the moon is mine
When you start thinking there's no one to love you
You can talk to me through the Lord above you
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees
And you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze
I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
And the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face
Just look for me, I'm everyplace...

Daddy please don't look so sad, Momma please don't cry, Cause I am in the arms of Jesus and He sings me lullabies. Please try not to question God, Don't think He is unkind. Don't think He sent me to you, And then He changed His mind. You see, I am a Special Child, And I am needed up above, I'm the special gift you gave Him, The product of your love. I'll always be there with you, And watch the sky at night Find the brightest star that's gleaming, That's my halo's brilliant light You'll see me in the morning frost, That mists your windowpane. That's me, in the summer showers, I'll be dancing in the rain. When you feel a gentle breeze, From a gentle wind that blows, That's me, I'll be there, Planting a kiss on your nose. When you see a child playing, And your heart feels a little tug, That's me, I'll be there, giving your heart a hug. So, daddy, please don't look so sad, Mommy don't you cry. I'm in the arms of Jesus, and He sings me lullabies. "I'll Be There" Author Unknown

~I'm in your heart~

And if I go, while you're still here...
know that I live on,
vibrating to a different measure
behind a thin veil you cannot 
see through.
You will not see me,
so you must have faith.
I wait for the time when
we can soar together again,
both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to the fullest
and when you need me,
just whisper my name in your heart,
...I will be there.

Alexis My Angel

~Visit From An Angel~

An Angel came to me one day
She touched my heart in such a special way

That Angel, she spoke to me with her eyes
And used an earthly voice that came as soft cries

I thought that she would stay with me
But I didn't know what I couldn't see

This Angel she had a different plan
She'd soon spread her wings and leave this land

If only she would have stayed a while longer
There are so many things that we would've done

The time we did share is my most precious treasure
Blessed by her presence, it was more than my pleasure

Maybe someday she'll stop by again
And fill this void that's left within

If she doesn't I'll understand…
She's waiting for Me in the Promised Land

A Thought

A Thought

You came into our lives,
grabbed pieces of our hearts,
and left with them still clutched in your fist.
No time for goodbyes,
no knowledge of your destination.
I think that maybe that is the way the Lord wanted it...

For us to know the joy of love...
to have this gut wrenching jolt of death-
to know the wonder of life.
Perhaps you only came to us,
so that we would see what we still have 
instead of thinking that all we have is 
what we see.
Perhaps your purpose
was only to lift the veil
and force us to look at the light.

Love Never Dies

Dear Daddy

~Letter to Daddy~

Daddy, please don't feel guilty
It was just my time to go.
I see you are still feeling sad,
And the tears just seem to flow.

We all come to earth for our lifetime,
And for some it's not many years.
I don't want you to keep crying
You are shedding so many tears.

I haven't really left you
Even though it may seem so.
I have just gone to my heavenly home,
And I'm closer to you than you know.

Just believe that when you say my name
I'm standing next to you,
I know you long to see me,
But there's nothing I can do.

I'll still send you messages
And hope you understand,
That when your time comes to "cross-over"
I'll be there to take your hand.

When tomorrow starts without me
and I'm not here to see... 
If the sun should rise and find your
eyes filled with tears for me, 

I wish so much you wouldn't cry
the way you did today... 
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 you think of me, 
I know you'll miss me, too. 

But when tomorrow starts without me,
please try to understand... 
That Jesus came and called my name
and took me by the hand, 

And said my place was ready
in heaven far above... 
And that I'd have to leave behind
all those I dearly love. 

So 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

~ October 31, 2008

In a quiet country cemetery,
Where the gentle breezes blow,
Lies my daughter I love so dearly;
She died a while ago.
Her resting place I visit,
Placing flowers there with care,
But no one knows my heartache,
When I turn to leave them there.
Though her smile is gone forever,
And her hands I cannot touch,
Still I have so many memories
Of the daughter I loved so much.
Her memory is my keepsake,
With which I will never part.
God has her in His keeping;
I have her in my heart.

Poem October 22, 2008
You Ask Me How I'm Doing

You Ask Me How I'm Doing

You ask me how I'm doing
I answer with "I'm fine."
What I'd really like to say though,
Is I think I've lost my mind.

Won't you take a moment
To see my hurt and pain?
To know my life's been shattered
And will never be the same.

I've lost someone I love so much
It's just too hard to bare.
Is there someone to understand me?
Someone to say they care?

Will you take some time and cry with me?
Will you share in my great sorrow?
Can you somehow help me find a way
That I can face tomorrow?

Do you know that when my 'Lexi' died
A part of me died too?
A piece of me is missing,
now what to do.

I don't expect to hear you say,
"I know just how you feel."
Just tell me that you miss her too,
And pray our hearts will heal.

Can you tell me that you're sorry,
And what she meant to you?
Somehow this burden may be lightened,
If the pain is borne by two.
