"Grief never ends
But it changes,
It's a passage
Not a place to stay...
The sense of loss
Must give way
If we're to value
The life that was lived...
Grief is not a sign of weakness
Nor lack of faith,
It is the price of LOVE."

What Can I Do

But Make My Life A Tribute To You...

~In The Meantime~

Someday I will go to you,

And I know that you'll be waiting.

With me through crisis strong and true,

And with me celebrating.

I don't know just when it will be;

In the daytime or at night.

In which month life's doors will close on me,

When I will walk into the light.

I only know that when I go

To join you where you are,

My soul will sing,

My heart will grow,

To be with You in the stars.

In the meantime I will pray

That your being is filled with light.

That joy and blessings fill your days,

That peace gives you rest through the nights.

That you can spend time with those still here,

Yet return to your place so fair,

To be with those who you hold dear,

Who waited for you there.

I'll seize hold of my days that remain,

And make them worth my breath.

I will try not to dwell in despair and pain,

Or bring on my own death.

I will try to be what you want me to be,

I will be who I am.

I will try to appreciate those still with me,

And be as kind as I can.

I will try to avoid the mistakes I've made,

By learning, By looking, By seeing.

I will try not to always be afraid,

And be fair to all sentient beings.

I'll do all I can to show You my love,

To make You proud of me.

And to let you know that though you are far above,

  You're in my heart, and always will be.

I Love You Kenny.

I would never sacrifice one to avoid the pain of the other"

"I dare not say in what state of mind I am;
I love the Boy with the utmost love to which my soul is capable,
And He Was Taken From Me...
Yet in the agony of my spirit,
in surrendering such a treasure,
I Feel A Thousand Time Richer,
Than If I Never Possessed It.

Love You Always,
Dear Kenny,

Was It Only Yesterday, I Last Saw  And Touched Your Face?

Or Heard Your Voice , Or Your Laughter My Ears Did Grace?

Time Can Play Such Tricks, Here Then Gone.

With This Empty Void I Try To Go On.

Life Is Such A Fragile Thing,

We Sometimes Take For

Granted, Then That Someone Is Gone,

And Time Can't Be Recanted.

If I Could Change Today and Go Back In Time,

I Would Hold You Closer And Try To Capture Every Moment,

And I'de Thank God Everyday That You Were Mine...

But It Is Not To Be. I Had To Let You Go.

In Each Breath I Take I Remember,

And Oh How My Heart Aches So.

But One Day In The Future, Together We Will Be,

And Your Sweet Smile Forever I Will See.

So Wait For Me My Child, Just For A Little While,

And One Day We'll Be Together,

Then God Will Give Me Back My Smile...
Your Mom 4ever
