POEM 17 : AS I SIT IN HEAVEN ...




As I sit in heaven
And watch you everyday
I try to let you know with signs
I never went away

I hear you when you're laughing
And watch you as you sleep
I even place my arms around you
To calm you as you weep

I see you wish the days away
Begging to have me home
So I try to send you signs
So you know you are not alone

Don't feel guilty that you have
Life that was denied to me
Heaven is truly beautiful
Just you wait and see

So live your life, laugh again
Enjoy yourself, be free
Then I know with every breath you take
You'll be taking one for me

POEM 16 : THE NEXT ROOM


Death is nothing at all

I have only slipped away into the next room

I am I, and you are you

Whatever we were to each other

That we are still

Call me by my old familiar name

Speak to me in the easy way you always used

Put no difference into your tone

Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow

Laugh as we always laughed

At the little jokes we always enjoyed together

Play, smile, think of me, pray for me

Let my name be ever the household word 

that it always was

Let it be spoken without effort

Without the ghost of a shadow in it

Life means all that it ever meant

It is the same as it ever was

There is absolute unbroken continuity

What is death but a negligible accident?

Why should I be out of mind

Because I am out of sight?

I am waiting for you for an interval

Somewhere very near

Just around the corner

All is well.

Nothing is past; nothing is lost

One brief moment and all will be as it was before 

How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting 

when we meet again!

POEM 15 : THE BOND GOD GAVE US


When God said You had to go
We could not understand
Your days as a boy came to an end
Your life as an angel began

It happened fast, it was all too soon
For You to leave us then
Our days on earth are numbered
Our destiny's been planned

It must be awesome to be in heaven
And watching us at the same time
Though we cannot see You, we feel You near
With us right here, in spirit and mind

We see you smile as we are smiling
We feel you watch us when we sigh
You must be cheering as we are laughing
You reach to embrace us when we cry

The bond God gave us cannot be broken 
The link is eternally tied at the seams
Our spirits are bound together forever
Our hopes, our thoughts and all our dreams 

Life goes on for us down here
We're keeping the faith with a hopeful smile
Thinking of You rejoicing in heaven
Warms our hearts for a little while

God is great, and God is good
He keeps His word, we need not fear
Until we see You again in heaven
 We'll be missing You with a silent tear

POEM 14 : MY FIRST CHRISTMAS IN HEAVEN


We look up to the sky, and see the twinkling stars
Staring with a sigh, we see You from a far
Christmas sure is different, without You by our side
You're spending Christmas with Jesus, our tears, we all must hide

We can only imagine, what Christmas is like up there
With Jesus right beside You, among the angels fair 
The choir must be spectacular, the singing beyond compare
What a joyous moment, for all in His Kingdom to share

We miss You very much, more than words can say
Feeling your presence here, we think of You each day
For everywhere we are, there You'll always be
Your face is imprinted in all our hearts, a precious memory

We feel your gift among us all, God's precious gift of love
Telling us we can count on You, to watch us from above
Day after day, You drop a sign, to show us You are near
How blessed are we, that You are now, our guardian angel here

Our hearts are filled with love for You, as we send our Christmas cheer
Knowing You'll have a wonderful time with Jesus Christ this year
We'll wipe away that lonely tear, as we see You beaming in Heaven
Happily celebrating Christmas and an awesome Twenty-Eleven!

POEM 13 : I AM WHO I AM


I am who I am for a reason
God sculpted me to be
He wanted someone very precise
A boy who is like me 

I look like I do for a reason
My face, my eyes, my hands
He custom-made my body
Being tall was part of His plan

The parents I have are the ones He chose
He has His reasons for that
I am their bundle of joy, one Christmas Eve
A pride to my Mom and Dad

No, the trauma I faced was not easy
I was put through grueling tests
If pained God too, but He had to do
To mould me to my best

I am who I am for a reason
God intended me to be
Someone to help Him watch over You
An angel just like me

POEM 12 : DEAR SON


 
Dear Son



The day You obediently answered God’s call

Is truly our saddest day of all

Watching You breathe that one last breath

An imprint in our memory, still very fresh



The question why, will always linger

Could God not grant us more time together

It seems like only yesterday, when You were born

It is hard to believe that You are now gone



Leaving us devastated and groping in the dark

While You chill out with God in His heavenly park

Laughing and playing with His other children

A beautiful sight to picture of Heaven



We got your message, we know You are here

The bond between us, is so very dear

You are constantly watching us, from far and near

We read your little signs, and we find them clear



That every little thing remind us of You

Your electric guitar especially, that is still brand new

We remember You playing it on the amplifier

You soon had to stop, when it somehow got heavier



We miss You more than we know how to express

God is surely putting your family to a difficult test

To send His message of love, He picked the best

For You clearly stand out, You have been blessed



Anointing You with the privilege of the highest kind

God called one day and said, “Daniel, it’s time.”

He waited for You patiently by His ocean shore

With open arms, He proved to us He loves You more



Today, we give thanks with a grateful mind

Though our hearts are shattered, God has been kind

Our souls are connected, but we still have to part

Until we are reunited, You will live in our hearts



Love, Mom

POEM 11: HEAVEN ROCKS



One night I cried to Jesus, as I sat beneath a tree

With a heart so filled with sorrow, I thought in misery

I have reached a dead end, I don’t know where to go

If only God could give a sign; a sign so I would know



I told Him of my burdens, and the sadness in my heart

The faith I have has crumbled, all hope is in the mud

Why did You have to take my son, I asked the Lord again

Never have I ever felt, such devastating pain



I’m angry Lord, I’m missing him, I’m drowning in my sorrow

I’m overwhelmed with grief; It’s hard to see tomorrow

Then I felt a little breeze, blowing softly in my face

Instantly, I felt his eyes, though I could not see his gaze



He said, Mommy, I’m an angel, my spirit now is free

Heaven really rocks, I’m as happy as can be

You should see me now, I can sit, and walk and stand

I am everywhere at one time, it’s hard to comprehend



No one will ever take away, our bond with one another

The link we have is real, our connection is forever

I’m watching you and family, from a cotton cloud above

When the sun shines its rays, I'll be sending you my love
