Bittersweet Birthday

I wanted to celebrate your birthday
hoping to restart a new tradition
But...my gladness soon turned into sadness
when I turned around and saw your son's reaction.

He looked so sad and lost, my heart just sank
I never ever want to see that expression on his face
He doesn't want to remember
So I know in my heart there may not be another

On the other hand, your daughter was so excited
blowing up balloons and eating all the icing.
It was bittersweet and now I will know better
next time your birthday will just be me and your daughter.

Bereaved Birthdays

Birthdays are a time for celebration
Not a time for tears
But what happens when the birthdays
No longer mark the years
A birthday marks the moment
A spirit enters earthly life
To share its special love and joy
And learn from earthly strife
Before a spirit comes to us,
It knows when and how it must depart
It chose its path carefully,
We are honored from the start
The sadness we now feel on such a joyous day
Is longing for our loved one's touch
It's natural to feel this way
For even though the birthdays
No longer mark a spirit's stay
Love continues on forever
To touch us everyday I hug my precious memories
Close to my heart
And honor my beloved spirit child
Who chose me from the start

Today is My Birthday

Today is my birthday
Celebrate my life with you
And remember the good times
Not the bad and do not be sad;
Look up towards the sun
And catch every ray of light upon your cheek
For I am there with you.

Today is my birthday
Be happy for me
I lived a short but full, happy life
I had the pleasure of love
And the joy of my family
Do not be sad
Look up towards the stars
And catch each twinkle in your heart.
For I am there with you.

Today is my birthday
My legacy is not wealth or mighty belongings,
My legacy is you and your life.
Spend it wisely and carefully
Guard it always
Do not be sad
Feel the wind on your face and in your hair
And know that I loved you
For I am there with you, in your laughter
And in your hearts.

Today is my birthday
Learn to live again without me
Take my strength with you
For you are not alone.
Do not be sad
Feel the rain on your face
Feel all life's treasures and
Know that you are alive!
At each step of the way
I will help you
For I am with you always
Until we meet again.

Today is my birthday....

I would like to send a letter to heaven
and address it to the one I love.
My child has left this world,
to be with the Lord above.
I would tell her that I love her,
and that I miss her loving touch.
I would say were lost without her
and we miss her - - oh so much.
I would ask if she could visit,
if we promised not to cry.
Maybe one more time to see her
We forgot to say "Good-bye."
We will try to control our emotions
we truly feel we could.
So please - - we need a visit.
We promise we'll be good.
It is so hard, we miss her.
Oh Lord, this feeling is the worst.
We know you gave her to us,
yes, we know you had her first.
But you called her prematurely,
I'm sorry I question your will.
I know you have your reasons
but Lord - - I miss her still.
If you'd only make an exception
please consider what we plea.
It is so hard accepting that our daughter
- Again, we will never see.
Oh baby I write you this letter
with all the love there is to be had.
Because it's just not me who's hurting
there's your sister and your dad.
We need so much to see you,
then we'll try to let you rest.
But if not in this world, baby,
then we'll see you in the next.
So Im sending a letter to heaven,
and pray you hear my plea.
But if the answer is not what Im asking --
Lord come and rescue me!
Written by Paula Osipovitch

Special Angel in Heaven

There's a special Angel in Heaven
that is a part of me.
It is not where I wanted her
but where God wanted her to be.
She was here but just a moment
like a night time shooting star.
And though she is in Heaven
she isn't very far.
She touched the heart of many
like only an Angel can do.
I would've held her every minute
if the end I only knew.
So I send this special message
to the Heaven up above.
Please take care of my Angel
and send her all my love.

And I will light a candle for you
to shadow all the darkness and bless the times we knew
Like a beacon in the night the flame will burn bright
and guide us on our way
Oh today I light a candle for you.

Seasons come and go and I'm weary from the change
Keep on moving on -- you know it's not the same
And when I'm walking all alone
Do you hear me call your name?
Do you hear me sing the songs we used to sing?

And I will light a candle for you...

You filled my life with wonder -- touched me with surprise
Always saw that something special deep within your eyes
And through the good times and the bad
We carried on with pride
I hold on to the love and life we knew

And I will light a candle for you...
Oh today I light a candle for you.


Birthday Thoughts

I hear you saying happy birthday
I hear every word you say
I feel the love coming from your heart
I know how sad you are because were apart

Im in your thoughts of memories made in the past
Oh how you thought our making memories would last
You hold me spiritually inside of you
Held by the greatness of the love inside of you

Your birthday thoughts mean so much to me
It shows that you are always thinking of me
If I could have a birthday wish, which I do
Ill just want to send my love right back to you
