"One More Day With You"

It's your 35th birthday my precious Cassie
You left us all eighteen years ago.
If only I had known that day
The things that I now know.

I would of held you closer each time we said goodnight
Kisses would flow freely and hugs would be a delight.
If only I had one more day with you
This time I'd get it right.

We had a special relationship throughout your 16 years
But had I known that 16 years was all that we would share.
I'd of taken time more often
To show you how much I cared.

I'm glad I didn't know than that soon you would be gone
My heart could not have withstood the pain.
To know a life without you in it
Can never be the same.

If I had one more day to spend with you
I know I would want more.
It would be so hard to say goodbye
As hard as it was before.

So Happy Birthday sweet angel
I'm thinking of you from afar.
Not a day goes by my heart doesn't cry
For all we had and more.

One day we'll be re-united
At Heaven's golden gates.
And then it won't be just one more day
And I'll never again have to wait.

To hold and hug you tightly and never let you go
And all our birthdays we will spend together.
Where there is no waiting time
We will spend our days together, forever and forever.

"Happy Birthday Angel Girl"

One More Day

Last night I had a crazy dream
A wish was granted just for me
It could be for anything
I didn't ask for money
Or a mansion in Malibu
I simply wished, for one more day with you

One more day One more time
One more sunset, maybe I'd be satisfied
But then again I know what it would do
Leave me wishing still, for one more day with you
First thing I'd do, is pray for time to crawl

Then I'd unplug the telephone
And keep the TV off
I'd hold you every second
Say a million I love you's
That's what I'd do, with one more day with you

Leave me wishing still, for one more day
Leave me wishing still, for one more day

This day will be a celebration
of the short time you were here.
You will always be remembered
with great love and yes, sometimes with tears.
But only to feel pain and sorrow would not be fair to you,
your life meant so much more to us
more than we ever knew.
You were here so briefly
I wonder if you know,
all the ways you've still touched our world
since the day God called you home.
Now, you are with your Heavenly Father above.
We see not only what we lost,
but our capacity of love.
There will always be a big void,
our souls will grieve forever.
Will we forget or stop loving you?
No, not now.....not ever.
As this day is here upon us,
oh how our hearts still hurt.
But even as we mourn your death
We will always celebrate your birth.

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 the 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 in your laughter
And in your heart

Today is my birthday
Learn to live 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!!

A Special Birthday

Please God, make them remember that today is a special birthday.
Make them understand that the memories don't go away.
Bless them with ears to hear and hearts that care.
Enable them to listen while I share.
Shelter them that they may never know my pain.
Help them to help me know that my child's life was not in vain.
Help them to remember, Lord, that I wish my child was here
so we could still celebrate.
To understand that I still feel the nearness of my child.
To see beyond my smile and the words "I'm OK"
Please God, let just one remember that TODAY IS A SPECIAL BIRTHDAY.

Dear Joyce
This poem is one of many that my ANGEL Lee wrote, it is very special to me,
I would love to share it with you.


Softness of the skin
Sweetness in the smell
Nectar of the fruit
Tender in the heart
Dancing in the eyes
Uplifting in the smile
Tickle of the touch
Joining in the love

Truth in the speech
Love in the laughter
Primal in the scream
Soft in the whisper
Quick in the mind
Fair in the sentence
Brave in the confrontation
Joining in the love

Graceful in the sleep
Careful in the search
Deep in the sorrow
Strength in the sickness
Giving of thy self
Rich in the health
Kind in the giving
Joining in the love
