Poems for Lexi's Legacy



How I Wish

How I wish I could hold you once more
Touch your hand, your sweet beautiful face.
See you standing at my door
Run and have your loving embrace.

How I wish I could hold you once more
Touch your hand, your sweet beautiful face.
I still have your toys and the clothes you once wore
I deal with my loss and pain but at my own pace.

How I wish I could hold you once more
Touch your hand, your sweet beautiful face.
I know you are fine, fly my little angel and soar
Until it's my time again to touch your sweet face.

In loving memory of Lexi
I miss you so much
I love you,
Mama







Special Memories

Memories are something that no one can take away from you.
Memories will remain in your heart for ever and ever.
Even though you were with us for such a short time,
you left us with a lifetime of memories.
The big smile on your face,
your soft and loving hugs.
The joy we shared in the afternoons
reading, singing and playing.
The times you just wanted to be rocked.
The way you got excited when I'd say Mommie's here.
Your love for flowers and running in the yard.
The way you were developing your own little personality.
You've found a wonderful playground in heaven now,
with the other little angels.
Even though I still shed tears of grief for beautiful Lexi.
I know if you could,
you'd say Nana don't cry for me,
We'll play again someday
and I will pick a buttercup just for you.
I love you Lexi,
Nana








I Hear Each Tear Fall On Her Face

My Mom doesn't know I'm watching her
But I'm watching her just the same.
And I hear each tear fall on her face
At the mention of my name.

She says it sounds like music to her ears
That can be heard over a crowd.
Oh, I hear each tear fall on her face
When my name is said aloud.

I watch her stumble through each day
As she wishes the day would end.
And I hear each tear fall on her face
As she talks of me to her friends.

But there are few who truly understand
Oh this I've heard her proclaim.
And I hear each tear fall on her face
Will my Mom ever be the same?

I know that her smiles light up a sky
But I don't see that smile today.
Oh but I hear each tear fall on her face
Her blue skies have turned to gray.

Oh I send to her my warmest hug
With the rays of the morning sun.
Then, I won't hear a tear fall on her face
For I shall erase them one by one.

Yes, my Mom doesn't know I'm watching her
But I'm watching her just the same.
And if I hear a tear fall on her face
I'll just softly whisper her name.

His Treasure

That day started with such a beautiful snow.
Who would have known on that day you would go?

I know He came to meet you -
to take you there.
How you must have smiled,
as he touched your hair.

Sweet Angel, I think of you often -
when I see beautiful things.
But, sometimes, the pain -
oh how it stings.

Help me to remember you and it not bring tears.
Help me to remember with only a smile.
For this time apart is but for awhile.

But, for now, Sweet Lexi, go and play and run
Laugh with the butterflies and giggle with the sun.

Pick your flowers while you dance and sing.
And, oh little girl - use those wings.

How we miss you, you can't measure.
But we rest in God's grace,
knowing you are His treasure.

I love you,
Aunt Treena



Little Sweet Angel

Little Sweet Angel,
Your smile so sweet.
Little Sweet Angel,
Your chubby little feet.

Little Sweet Angel,
Your hair so soft to touch.
Little Sweet Angel,
We miss you so much.

Little Sweet Angel,
Who now lives above.
Little Sweet Angel,
Surrounded by love.

Why did this happen?
We don't understand.
But, I do know,
Now God holds your hand.

Little Sweet Angel,
Our love will never fade.
Little Sweet Angel,
"Precious Lexi Jade."

I love you,
Aunt Treena






Through God's grace you were ours,
for a little while.
Now you live in everlasting light,
forever God's precious child.
You will live on in our hearts,
our thoughts and everything we do,
and at the end of every day
we pray to God and thank Him
for the gift of you.
~ Author unknown



A million times we've needed you,
A million times we've cried.
If love alone could've saved you,
You never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place,
No one else will ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone.
Part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.

Precious Child
By Karen Taylor-Good

In my dreams you are alive and well
Precious child, precious child
In my mind I see you clear as a bell
Precious child, precious child

In my soul, there is a hole
That can never be filled
But in my heart there is hope
You live on, always there,
Never gone
Precious child
You left too soon
Though it may be true that we're apart
You'll live forever in my heart

In my plans
I was the first to leave
Precious child, precious child
But in this world
I was left to grieve
Precious child, precious child
In my soul, there is a hole
That can never be filled
But in my heart, there is hope
and you are with me still

In my heart you live on
Always there, never gone
Precious child you left too soon
Though it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever
In my heart

God knows I want to hold you
See you, touch you
Maybe there's a heaven and someday I will again
Please know you're not forgotten
Until then

In my heart you live on
Always there, never gone
Precious child you left too soon
Though it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever in my heart
