                                       To My Family, Love Timbo

 

 

 

  

      

 

 

 

 

 

                                     

 

You can shed tears that he is gone,
Or you can can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left.
Your heart can be empty
Because you cant see him, or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember him and only that he is gone, or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, Be empty and turn your back, or you can do what he would want:
Smile, Open your eyes, Love and go on.....

                                 

 

 "If 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 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 that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me 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,

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

But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye,
For all my life, I'd always thought,
I didn't want to die.

I had so much to live for,
So much left yet to do,
it seemed almost impossible,
that I was leaving you.

I thought of all the yesterdays,
The good ones and the bad,
I thought of all that we shared,
And all the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday,
Just even for a while,
I'd say good-bye and kiss you
and maybe see you smile.

But then I fully realized,
That this could never be,
For emptiness and memories,
would take the place of me.

And when I thought of worldly things,
I might miss some tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did,
My heart was filled with sorrow.

But when I walked through heaven's gates,
I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and smiled at me,
From His great golden throne,

He said, "This is eternity,
And all I've promised you."
Today your life on earth is past,
but here life starts anew.

I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
and since each day is the same way,
There's no longing for the past.

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

  

                         

 

 

 If tears could build a stairway
And memories were a lane
We would walk right up to Heaven
And bring you back again

No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye
You were gone before we knew it
And only God knows why

Our hearts still ache in sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No on will ever know

But know we know you want us
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store

Since you’ll never be forgotten
We pledge to you today
A hallowed place within our hearts
Is where you’ll always stay 

 

            

 

 

 

                                            

 

                                        

   

          

                                      

                         

 

 

 

                 

                                          LOVE MOM AND DAD

 

 

 

 

                             

                             Heaven's gate swung gently open, 


                              The Master called softly, "Come,"


                         And you, dear one, took the Master's hand,


                               And your work on earth was done.


                                  We'll never cease to miss you,


                                    And shed many silent tears,


                                 Because we cannot share with you


                                  Our hopes, our joys, our fears.


                                    But one day, in God's garden, 


                                   When the Master calls us to come.


                                You'll be at the gates with open arms


                                     and say to us "welcome home"

 


 

 

                                  

                                            

                                       

                                 

 
                                          
A LETTER TO MY FAMILY
To my dearest family, some things id like to say,
first of all to let you know, i truly am okay.
I'm writing this from heaven, here I dwell with God above,
Here there's no more tears of sadness,
here is just eternal love
Please do not be unhappy, just because I'm out of sight
Remember that I am with you morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you,
when my life on earth was through
God picked me up and hugged me, he said 'I welcome you'
'Its good to have you back again,
you were missed while you were gone
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on'
'I need you here so badly, you are apart of my plan
there is so much we can do, to help our mortel man'
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night,
the days chores put to flight
God and I are close to you... in the middle of the night
When you think of my life on earth,
and all of those loving years
Because you are only human,
they are bound to bring you tears.
Do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain
Remember there would be no flowers,
unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you,all what God had planned
If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain,
though my life on earth is through
More then ever before, I'm so much closer to you
There are rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb
But together we can do it, by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too
That as you give into the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody, who is in sorrow and pain
Then you can say to God at night....'My day was not in vain'
And now I am contented... that my life was worthwhile
Knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low
Just lend a hand to pick them up, as on your way you go
When you're walking down the street
and you've got me on your mind
I'm walking in your footsteps, only half a step behind
And when its time for you to go.....
from that body to be free
Remember you are not going..... You're coming here to me.
Until we are together again
love and miss you all

A PARENT'S PRAYER



Dear God,

You sent a child to me

To fill my life with joy,

And only You knew which was best --

A little girl or boy.

Somehow I took for granted, Lord,

That we would have a lifetime,

And I made so many future plans

For that precious child of mine.

Enchanted by that Miracle,

Caught up in each new day,

I guess I didn't hear You, Lord,

When You said, "This one can't stay."

I trust You, Lord. Thy will; not mine,

Yet I can't understand

This sudden loss -- the emptiness --

Caused by another's hand.

I know my child's an angel now

But my heart is aching so.

I'm sorry I wasn't ready, Lord,

To let my baby go.

There wasn't time for one last hug;

There was no final kiss.

Oh God, it's all those special smiles

That I already miss.

So Lord, could you do just one thing

For me especially?

Please hold my angel close to You

And say goodbye for me. Amen
