Romelo, it's been 14 years since I last felt you in my arms,
and every waking moment I can't find the way to let you go,
when I got pregnant with your brother Nikko I cried at first,
I cried 'cause I didn't want to feel like I was replacing you,
and when I took your sister and 2 brothers with me,
they asked what the baby was and to my surprise,
she said, "you're having a boy,"
oh how that broke me 'cause the thought of losing you came to mind,
and how I miss you my dear son,
as time went on I heard you whisper in my ear,
mommy, for he is a gift to you not a sad toy,
so take care of my brother as if you take care of me,
so from then on I knew you were giving me a gift for my depression,
someone to help me with my sadness,
and here it is 14 years later,
and I still feel like I want you also,
everyday I wake up knowing someone is missing and it hurts me,
but I remember what you said
and look at Nikko and know that you are okay,
your birthday is here again,
and last year all I did was cry,
as we sang happy birthday,
but this year I will try to be strong
and celebrate better than last year,
with a big celebration,
as you celebrate your earth day in heaven
I will be celebrating here with your brother and sister,
as we sing in your name remember
we are missing you as well, my dear angel......
your mommy always and forever
This image of Romelo with Jesus is a wonderful and loving gift from Tina's Mom.
This is our newest addition to our family, our "Danny Boi." He is also a gift for my sadness. wow, it's 8 yrs since JoJo left us, and it still hurts like it was yesterday...
just waitin' on the day for him to come home, but he has to wait on me to go home now when i make it to heaven doors....

Sharing some pictures from Romelo's birthday ~
This is Romelo's baby brother Nikko sleeping, dreaming of his brother and all the other angels
that watch over him and keep him safe for me.....
Romelos family -- his brother and sister and cousins, see how happy they are for romelo...
These are the adults, see how happy we were for romelo. I didn't even cry, I was so happy with his day. I surely miss him but I was happy because that is what he wants me to be..
happy with his brother and sister and our new baby Nikko......
This is before the kids blew out the candles.....
when we started to sing happy birthday, I felt weird because Romelo's not here but spiritually he was and always is,
and he heard us sing his song, and all the kids
blew out the candles. so did Romelo along with their help.....
Me (Romelo's mommy) and my family......
Some more of my family.....
This is a very dear friend of mine, her name is Mumu. She took all the pictures for me. If it wasn't for her I think I would have been sad because she made me feel like my baby was here
and didn't make me feel like because Romelo's not here we shouldn't celebrate as if he was here..... I thank you Mumu for that,
I love you girl. You my girl, muahhhh...
Nikko woke up to take pictures with his Mommy, and boy did he make my day.... you see how we have
God above us, we eat dinner with the Lord everynight.....
ROMELO ANTONIO RODRIGUEZ
5LBS. 11.8 OZ.
ON THE DAY OF FEB.25,2003 I STARTED TO HAVE LABOR PAINS.
I TOOK THE SAME PRECAUTIONS I DID WITH MY 2 YR. OLD, THIS WAS MY FOURTH PREGNANCY NOT MY 1ST.
I KNEW I WAS READY.
I WAS A PRO YOU CAN SAY AT GIVING BIRTH.
MY BABY'S DADDY MISSED THE OTHER 3 BIRTHS, SO FOR HIM THIS BABY WAS VERY SPECIAL 'CAUSE HE WILL FINALLY WITNESS WHAT HE HAD MISSED 3 TIMES.
IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE HAPPIEST DAY OF HIS LIFE, TURNED OUT TO BE THE WORST.
Romelo's mommy and daddy
I cannot see you with my eyes
Or hear you with my ears,
But thoughts of you are with me still
And often dry my tears.
You whisper in the rustling leaves
That linger in the fall;
And in the gentle evening breeze,
I'm sure I hear you call.
A part of you remains with me
That none can take away,
It gives me strength to carry on
At dawning of each new day.
I think of happy times we shared
And then I softly sigh,
But this I know - we'll meet again
And never say good-bye.

When you look up to the heavens
each and every night
Look for that special star
shining oh so bright.
When you see it you can smile
and know that all is all right
Because, you see, the brightest star
is your little angel, shining his light.

Angels in Heaven
by Higher Faith
It happened so fast everything was a blur
And everyone came by and said how sorry they were.
I knew that they meant well So I tried to force a smile
And they said I should be thankful that I had him for a while
But now all my friends and my family have gone home.
I am just left here sitting with my memories all alone
I've always heard that God does everything right
I just wish My Angels weren’t in Heaven tonight
I know there are some things beyond our control
And some things only God can decide
That won’t stop this hurting that I feel in my soul
I just wish my angels weren’t in Heaven tonight
Oh I know there are some things beyond our control
Some things only God can decide.
Oh But that won’t stop this hurting that I feel in my soul
I just wish my Angels weren’t in Heaven tonight
God won’t you please Kiss my Angel Good Night
Romelo's brother Matthew waiting for his baby brother
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 beautiful music
of his name.
It soothes my broken heart
And sings to my soul.

THE BROKEN CHAIN
We little knew that morning; God was going to call your name,
in life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same
It broke our hearts to loose you, you did not go alone
for a part of you went with us, the day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories, your love is still our guide,
and though we can not see you, you're always at our side
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same,
as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

my angel Romelo,
thy son of Melo,
thy son of Danielle Marie,
a mother so happy to be,
how can something so precious,
escape from this reality,
this fatality is truly a grand tragedy,
mommy and daddy cannot finish to express this loss,
it's a unjustifiable issue of why and because,
on your birth the day you enter earth,
I can't imagine,
how you escape the worst,
I just wish that your big sister and 2 brothers,
could have met you first,
we are all gather here in your presence,
to let you know we love you in your remembrance,
long to wait these long 9 months,
for you to be safe-with heavens holy monks,
we cried in tears,
with fears of you not being here,
but through our love,
our savior will keep you near,
most of all sincere,
standing strong without fear,
destiny altered its course,
to make the most of course,
and in this hour,
fate took its place,
for what ever reason,
it chose this season,
but why do mommy and daddy
still think its treason,
they say the good die young,
but why you my son,
it hurts so much,
'cause we can't have your touch,
Romelo please know
we all love you so much,
I end this poem from this place,
which would of been your home,
my papi chulo you would of not been alone,
what I would give to hear those first words
as you grow - 'tis sad to say
but i'm happy to where you had flown!
may good be with you at peace with joy
when you reach his throne,
we'll miss you always Rome
take pride in your new paradise home,
I know my son you're not alone,
your family loves you
so don't forget that homes..
love always your family

when I think of my son to be,
how and why this happen to we,
mommy and daddy were so happy to be,
how and why can this tragedy be,
to wait to hold and see,
missing how I used to feel your kicks,
the pain you put me through,
daddy by mommy side,
excited to have his baby boy born,
mommy happy to finally be relieved
from pain and uncomfort,
to finally see the face of our baby boy,
to always remember your face for earth,
so god decided to call upon thee,
your sister and brothers how I wish you could have met,
but god decided to call upon thee,
to watch over us til the day we meet again,
your family will always be with thee and never lose touch,
for you Romelo we stand strong as one,
have fun with your angel friends,
your earth family will always miss thee,

every one else I send my love....
We all love and miss you, Romelo ~

THIS CHILD OF MINE
"I'll lend you for a little time,
a child of mine. He said,
For you to love while he lives,
and mourn for when he's dead.
It may be six or seven years,
or twenty-two or three.
But will you, till I call him back,
take care of him for Me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you,
and shall his stay be brief,
You'll have his lovely memories
as solace for your grief."
"I cannot promise he will stay,
since all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught down there,
I want this child to learn
I've looked the wide world over
in my search for teachers true,
And from the throngs that crowd life's lane,
I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love,
nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate Me when I come
to call him back again?"
I fancied that I heard them say:
"Dear Lord, thy will be done."
For all the joy Thy child shall bring,
the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness,
we'll love him while we may,
And for all the happiness we've known,
forever grateful stay;
But shall the angels call for him
much sooner than we've planned;
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes
and try and understand.
Romelo's resting spot, how sad...
I carried you in hope
the long 9 months of my term,
remember that close hour when we made you,
often felt you kick and move
as slowly you grew within me,
wondered what you would look like
when your wet head emerged,
girl or boy, and at what glad moment,
I should hear your birth cry,
and I welcoming you
with all you needed of warmth and food,
we had a home waiting for you,
after my strong laborings,
sweat cold on my limbs,
my small cries merging with the winter air,
you came. you did not cry.
you did not breathe.
we had not expected this;
it seems your birth had no meaning,
or had you rejected us?
they will say you did not live,
register you as stillborn.
but you lived for me all that time
in the dark chamber of my womb,
and when I think of you now,
perfect in your little death,
I know that for me you are born still;
I shall carry you you with me forever,
my child, you were always mine,
you are mine now.
death and life are the same mysteries.
