A Mother's pain  / Mom
A Mothers Pain 

You see me smiling.
What you don't see is that I am screaming behind that smile.
You see me go on with everything....work....groceries.....life in general.
What you don't see is that it takes every ounce of energy 
I have just to breathe.
You see me alone with my thoughts.
What you don't see is me talking to Him
You see me say "I am fine".
What you don't see is the huge hole in my heart that can never be filled.
You see me and think "she's back to normal".
What you don't see is that there is no normal for me anymore.
You see me and think "Oh my God I hope this never happens to me"
What you don't see is that as much as I long for you to
 understand me... I hope this never happens to you either.
You see me joking and laughing with others and think she
 must be gettin over what has happened.
What you don't see is that I can never forget, nor would I want to,
 you don't get over the loss of a child.
You see me sad and don't know what to say so you keep going.
What you don't see is all I really want is for you to ask how 
I am doing, really, and give me a hug.
You see that life goes on.
What you don't see is on August 1, 2005 that the life I had will 
never be the same .
You see that I am strong...... do not be deceived.
What you don't see is that I am weak and weary. somedays "I am 6 feet from the edge".
What you see is a mask....a lie. The mask helps you cope with me
and me cope with myself.
What you don't see is the raw sometimes unbearable pain. 
You don't see me being unable to breathe.
What you don't see is my despair. You don't see me screaming to 
heaven for God to give my son back.
What you don't see you could never understand anyway unless you 
walk a mile in my shoes.... God Forbid.


What My Child Has Taught Me  / Mom
What My Child Has Taught Me
I've learned that you can keep going long after you think you can't.
I've learned that learning to forgive takes a lot of practice.
I've learned that friends can become strangers, 
and strangers can become friends.
I've learned that ignorance isn't an excuse for the lack of compassion.
I've learned that some people will never, ever  - "get it."
I've learned that the community of sorrow is the strongest of all.
I've learned that no matter how bad your heart is broken,
 the world doesn't stop for your grief.
I've learned that your life can be changed in a matter of minutes.
I've learned that the people you care most about in life 
are taken from you too soon.
I've learned that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. 
It may be the last time you see them.
I've learned that love isn't measured by the amount of time you have with someone.
I've learned that some sorrow is so deep that it has no words.
But so is love.

RYAN / Mom
Our darling Precious Ryan
      We were all by your side
   with tears we watched over you
   and held your hand and cried
     you fought so hard to stay 
   our hearts were slowly breaking
   as we watched you slip away
  your final breathe was so soft and sweet
     your life was over, you now lay in peace
      we know you had to leave us, you did not go alone
  for part of us went with you the day
 the angels took you home
   you have given us so much love
        thank you Ryan for all your love
       now you are safe in the arms of Jesus
            where pain does not exist
            we will be together again one day
               we will always love you
RYAN / Mom






A MOTHER'S LOVE  / Mom
 http://www.angelfamilies.cityslide.com/page/page/2963757.htm
     I gave you the gift of life,
           and in return I've received
You were a true blessing
         given to me from the Lord above.
                       For the love between a mother
and a son
 is like no other
          And I am so proud that 
         I am able to say,
         I am YOUR mother.
HAPPY 4th OF JULY  / MOM
MY LOVE IS WITH YOU Author Unknown  / MOM
My Love Is With You
My love is with you Oh, sweet son, what can I say?
My heart is empty without you each day.
The angel wings you wear must be so grand,
If only I could reach out and touch your hand.
Maybe then we could say good-bye
Which could help dry the tears that I cry.
Now I know that's impossible for us to do,
So let's make a deal, just me and you.
When I look to the stars at night,
You look for me with all your might.
When you see me just shine real bright,
And together we can send our love and say good night.
I miss you, son, more every day,
And the emptiness I feel will not go away.
You are my son and will always be,
My angel in heaven looking down on me.
You will live in my heart,
And I will try to be strong,
Because, my son, in my heart is where you belong.
I love you, son, sleep well, my son.
letter from heaven xxx  / Terry Reilly (friend angel charlie maclennan )


To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say
But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived 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 that 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
i love and miss you all
all my love

THE BEST  / MOM

A heart of gold stopped beating,
two shining eyes at rest,
God broke our hearts to prove,
He only takes the best.

God knows you had to leave us,
but you did not go alone,
for part of us went with you,
the day He took you home.

To some you are forgotten,
to others just part of the past,
but to us who loved and lost you,
the memory will always last.

I AM ALWAYS WITH YOU  / MOM
 When I am gone, release me- let me go.
I have so many things to see and do.
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.

I gave to you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love
You each have shown
But now it's time I traveled on alone.

So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be conforted by trust.
It's only for a while that we must part.
So bless the memories within your heart.

I won't be far away for life goes on,
So if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me,
I'll be near
And if you listen
with your heart you'll hear
All of my love around you
speaking soft and clear.

And then, when you
Must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile
And say to you "Welcome Home."

Gone But Never Forgotten  / Mom

 



Gone but never forgotten


You were so full of life,
Always smiling and carefree,
Life loved you being a part of it,
And I loved you being a part of me.

You could make anyone laugh,
If they were having a bad day,
No matter how sad I was,
You could take the hurt away.

Nothing could every stop you,
Or even make you fall,
You were ready to take on the world,
Ready to do it all.

But God decided he needed you,
So from this world you left,
But you took a piece of all of us,
Our hearts are what you kept.

Your seat is now empty,
And it's hard not to see your face,
But please always know this,
No one will ever take your place.

You left without a warning,
Not even saying good-bye,
And I can't seem to stop,
Asking the question why?

Nothing will ever be the same,
The halls are empty without your laughter,
But I know you're in Heaven,
Watching over us and looking after.

I didn't see this coming,
It hit me by surprise,
And when you left this world,
A small part of me died.

Your smile could brighten anyone's day,
No matter what they were going through,
And I know everyday for the rest of my life,I'll be missing you.





 
Happy Easter Ryan  / Mom

TO MY FAMILY  / RYAN
FOR OUR FAMILY I LEFT BEHIND
I know it’s hard to understand
But it’s all part of a bigger plan
It’s alright and I’m okay
I’ve never seen such a pretty place
Still I’m sorry that I had to go away
Dry your tears now don’t you cry
You know I’ll always be close by
For all those years you helped me through
Now I’ll be the one looking out for you
I’ll be right here just close your eyes
Picture my face and I’ll make you smile
Speak my name and I’ll be there for you
I promise, cause that’s what angels do
We’ve shared so many special times
The memories dance through our minds
Just keep them close when we’re apart
And wrap them tightly in your heart
Cause that’s where joy and healing have to start
Dry your tears now don’t you cry
You know I’ll always be close by
For all those years you helped me through
Now I’ll be the one looking out for you
I’ll be right here, just close your eyes
Picture my face and I’ll make you smile
Speak my name and I’ll be there for you
I promise, cause that’s what angels do
My Arms Will Be Your Stairway by Millie P. Lorenz  / MOM

My Arms Will Be Your Stairway

When they placed you in my arms I gently embraced you, bringing you closer to my heart and the love I held there for you so deep within it. I looked down at your beautiful little face as your tiny fingers reached across the distance between my heart and yours, and grasped my fingers tightly. It was in those moments when I received the precious gift of my first Memory Pictures…. my first glimpses of you!

And in those moments I promised you that the arms that held you then would be the stairway to all of the wonder and joy that was ahead of you; from a hug for you each time you cried to the pride I felt each time you celebrated your dreams. I promised myself that I would be there for you always.

And the years passed… I was amazed at how a Mother’s heart could hold a capacity beyond measure of the love she held for her child. My arms were the stairway from your wounded little knee when you fell to, “making it better” when I held you.

When your little feet carried you the short span of distance away from me, jumping with joy…. turning on occasion to see if I was watching your wondrous little feats…. I held out my arms to you. As you laughed and ran back to me I reached out and swept you up into my arms before hugging you close to me feeling such thankfulness for the precious Memory Pictures I was gathering and the gift of your “child’s love” that tightly surrounded my heart and soul.

And time was… and you grew…. And at no time while gathering my Memory Pictures did I ever believe that your life with me would be measured.

But in the quiet times when I miss you from the depths of my soul, I hug my arms around myself and believe that your face is only a glimpse away from my heart and your beautiful self is only a memory away from my arms; your love will never leave me…. I am your Forever Mom!

I then once again realize that, from the day you were born, I gave you the staircase to your dreams…. and in that moment when time stood still God took you from my loving arms and embraced you in His own!

And in the silence that surrounds me in my memories, I know that you are now My stairway to heaven as you hold me in your Angel Arms…. until the day we once again embrace each other….

And I realize that My Arms were Your stairway to heaven!

This writing is dedicated In Memory of Ryan Hook, to his “Forever Mom”, Tamura Bush, and to all who have suffered the loss of a child. May these words be of comfort to you as you grow to believe just how precious your loving arms are!

Everything I Own  / Bread

Everything I Own

You sheltered me from harm.
Kept me warm, kept me warm
You gave my life to me
Set me free, Set me free
The finest years I ever knew
were all the years I had with you

I would give anything I own,
Give up me life, my heart, my home.
I would give everything I own,
just to have you back again.

You taught me how to love,
What its of, what its of.
You never said too much,
but still you showed the way,
and I knew from watching you.
Nobody else could ever know
the part of me that can't let go.

I would give anything I own,
Give up me life, my heart, my home.
I would give everything I own
Just to have you back again.

Is there someone you know,
you're loving them so,
but taking them all for granted.
You may lose them one day,
someone takes them away,
and they don't hear the words you long to say

I would give anything I own,
Give up me life, my heart, my home.
I would give everything I own
Just to have you back again.


MY DEAR SON  / MOM
In Loving
Memory
Of
 
A Dear Son

Something will remind me
I never know just when,
It might be something someone says
And it all comes back again

The times we spent together
The happiness, the fun,
Once again I feel the pain
Of lfe without my Son

It's said that time's a healer
Im not sure this is true,
There's not a day goes by Son
That I don't cry for you.
THERE'S NO REPLACING YOU  / MOM

  

      I Look Back The Day You Went Away.
 
It Broke My Heart, No Words I Could Say.

Just Tears From The Pain I Felt. I Think Of

The Wonderful Memories We Had, Makes My

Heart Melt.

The "I Love You Mom"I Will Never Hear

Again. It Hurts So Much Inside, The Tears

Begin.

They Flow Like A River, A River To A Sea.

Thats Just How Much Ryan,You Do Mean To

Me.

That Look That You Gave, That Smile;

That Grin. One I Will Never See From You

 Again "my Son"

You Were Unique Since The Day That You

Were Born, Now That Your Gone,

My Life Will Never Be The Same.

I Must Understand That The Lord Has Many

Things For You to Do.

I Want You To Know Ryan, I'll Always Love

You.
 I Look At Your Picture, I Hold It So Tight.
 
I Wonder How I Will Make It Without You

Just One More Night.

I Will Try To Hold Together,

And Cherish The Memories That We Had.

Theres One Other Thing Ryan, "I'm Proud To

Be Your Mom" xx
