We Do Not Need A Special Day

We do not need a special day
To bring you to our minds
The days we do not think of you
Are very hard to find

Each morning when we awake
We know that you are gone
And no one knows the heartache
As we try to carry on

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

Our thoughts are always with you
Your place no one can fill
In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still

There will always be a heartache
And often a silent tear
But always a precious memory
Of the days when you were here

If tears could build a staircase
And heartaches make a lane
We'd walk the path to Heaven
And bring you home again

We hold you close, within our hearts
And there you will remain
To walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again

Our family chain is broken now
And nothing seems the same
But as God calls us one by one
The chain will link again.
Written by Connie Dyer

Gone are the days we used to share,
But in our hearts you are always there,
The gates of memory will never close,
We miss you more than anyone knows,
With tender love and deep regret,
We who love you will never forget.

Let it not be said my life was in vain,
I've just moved on to a higher plane.
So I can keep better watch over you,
As you move on like you need to do
Though this life has reached an end,
I'm waiting for you around the bend.
I beg you please don't weep for me!
It's not so bad for soon you'll see,
That I will linger long past this sunset,
In the hearts of you who love me yet.

You are the winds that blow,
You are the diamonds in the snow,
You are the sun that melts my pain,
You are the gently autumns rain.
You are the graceful bird in flight,
You are the stars that shine at night,
You were the heartbeat of my life,
I wish you weren't gone, but here instead.
We have you as an angel now.
Blessed by the peace you bring.
And although I cannot see you.
I can feel the brush of your wings.
You bring me light in darkness
And calmness in times of fear.
And hope lives in the knowing
That you are always near.

If Grief Were Measured in Tears

If grief were measured in tears,
There could not be a compromise.
When I lost my child that day...
Tears began to flow from my eyes.

The tears have stained my face,
And left my heart with a scar.
A scar that shall never be erased,
Tears ease the pain from afar.

Grief is different for everyone.
Each stage is oh so real.
And no one can tell you how to grieve.
They can only share how they feel.

No parent should bury their child.
This fact seems so unfair.
Grief tells a heart its been defiled.
Tears flow from here to there.

If the tears I have cried to measure
How much grief is in my heart,
There is no limit to the pain I feel.
My life has been torn apart.

I know how other mothers feel.
I see the tears they too cry.
Oh, grief were measured in tears...
We could fill the earth and the sky.

Look at that light shinin' on her heart...

The mention of my child's name
may bring tears to my eyes,
But it never fails to bring music to my ears.
If you are really my friend,
let me hear the music of her name!
It soothes my broken heart and sings to my soul!
