In Loving Memory of
Tamulah Messiah O'Connor McCoy
February 9, 2000 - November 7, 2002




ONLY THE BEST

A HEART OF GOLD STOPPED BEATING
TWO SHINING EYES AT REST
GOD BROKE OUR HEARTS TO PROVE
HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST

GOD KNOWS YOU HAD TO LEAVE US
BUT YOU DID NOT GO ALONE
FOR PART OF US WENT WITH YOU
THE DAY HE TOOK YOU HOME

TO SOME YOU ARE FORGOTTEN
TO OTHERS JUST A PART OF THE PAST
BUT TO US WHO LOVED AND LOST YOU
THE MEMORY WILL ALWAYS LAST.






IF I COULD TAKE A MINUTE

IF I COULD TAKE A MINUTE
OUT OF EACH AND EVERY DAY,
TO HOLD MY CHILD CLOSE TO MY HEART
AND KISS HIS FEARS AWAY.

IF I COULD TAKE A MINUTE
OUT OF EACH AND EVERY WEEK,
TO PLAY WITH BLOCKS AND PEEK-A-BOO
TAG OR HIDE AND SEEK.

IF I COULD TAKE A MINUTE
OUT OF ANY SPAN OF TIME,
IíD NEVER WASTE A SECOND
OF THE PLEASURES THAT WERE MINE.
IF HE COULD CRAWL UPON MY KNEE
AND LAY HIS SLEEPY HEAD,
UPON MY SHOULDER TENDERLY
AND DREAM OF GINGERBREAD.

IíD SPEND MY TIME IN TOTAL BLISS
AND WATCH MY SMALL SON GROW,
FROM CHILDHOOD TO MANHOOD,
KNOWING ALL THERE IS TO KNOW.
IF I COULD STOP MY ACHING HEART
AND PUT MY MIND ASLEEP
IF I COULD STOP THE FLOW OF TEARS
THAT ARE ALWAYS ON MY CHEEK.

I ONLY NEED ONE MINUTE LORD,
I KNOW HEíS SAFE WITH YOU,
BUT THEREíS SOMETHING REAL IMPORTANT
THAT I HAD NO TIME TO DO
IF YOU COULD DO IT FOR ME LORD,
HEREíS A MESSAGE HE SHOULD KNOW,
TELL HIM THAT "I LOVE HIM"
THEN IíLL LET HIM GO.


This is a gift I got from my cousin for Mulah's birthday.
It is so nice. He is in jail and got it drawn for me.





Iíll Be There

Daddy please donít look so sad,
Mommy please donít cry.
Cause I am in the arms of Jesus
And He sings me lullabies.
Please try not to question God,
Donít think Heís been unkind.
Donít think He sent me to you,
And then he changed His mind.
You see, I am a Special Child,
And I am needed up above,
I am a special gift you gave Him,
The product of your love.
Iíll always be there with you,
And watch the sky at night.
Find the brightest star thatís gleaming
Thatís my haloís brilliant light.
Youíll see me in the morning frost,
That mistís your window pane.
Thatís me in the summer showers,
Iíll be dancing in the rain.
When you feel a gentle breeze,
From a gentle wind that blows,
Thatís me, Iíll be there, planting a kiss on your nose.
When you see a child playing,
And your heart feels a little tug,
Thatís me, Iíll be there, giving your heart a hug.
So daddy please donít look so sad,
Mommy please donít cry,
Iím in the arms of Jesus,
And he sings me lullabies.






WINGS OF AN ANGEL

A GENTLE WIND BLEW CROSS THE LAND
REACHING OUT TO TAKE A HAND
FOR ON THE WIND THE ANGEL CAME
CALLING OUT A CHILD'S NAME.

LEFT BEHIND, A MOTHER'S TEARS
LOVING MEMORIES OF THE YEARS
OF JOY AND LOVE, A LIFE WELL SPENT
AND NOW TO GOD A CHILD IS SENT.

ON ANGEL'S WINGS A HEAVENLY FLIGHT
THE JOURNEY HOME TOWARD THE LIGHT
TO THOSE WHO WEEP, A LIFE IS GONE
BUT IN GOD'S LOVE, TIS THE DAWN.







Angelís kisses

We go through life so often,
Not stopping to enjoy the day.
And we take each one for granted,
As we travel on our way.
For in your pain and sorrow,
An Angelís Kiss will help you through.
This kiss is very private,
For it is meant for only you.
We never stop to measure,
Anything we just might miss.
But if the wind should blow by softly,
Youíll feel an Angelís kiss.
A kiss that is sent from Heaven,
A kiss from up above.
A kiss that is very special,
From someone that you love.
So when your hearts are heavy,
And filled with tears and pain,
And no one can console you,
Remember once againÖ
About the ones you grieve for,
Because you sadly miss.
And the gentle breeze you took for granted,
Was an Angelís kiss.





WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME

WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME,
AND I'M NOT THERE TO SEE,
IF THE SUN SHOULD RISE AND FIND YOUR EYES
ALL FILLED WITH TEARS FOR ME;
I WISH YOU WOULDN'T CRY THE WAY YOU DID TODAY,
WHILE THINKING OF THE MANY THINGS WE DIDN'T GET TO SAY.
I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU LOVE ME,
AS MUCH AS I LOVE YOU,
AND EACH TIME THAT YOU THINK OF ME,
I KNOW YOU MISS ME TOO;
BUT WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME PLEASE TRY TO UNDERSTAND,
THAT AN ANGEL CAME AND CALLED MY NAME,
AND TOOK ME BY THE HAND
AND SAID MY PLACE WAS READY, IN HEAVEN UP ABOVE,
AND THAT I'D HAVE TO LEAVE BEHIND ALL THOSE I DEARLY LOVE.
BUT AS I TURNED TO WALK AWAY,
A TEAR FELL FROM MY EYE,
FOR ALL MY LIFE, I'D ALWAYS THOUGHT
I DIDN'T WANT TO DIE.
I HAD SO MUCH TO LIVE FOR,
SO MUCH LEFT YET TO DO,
IT SEEMED ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE, THAT I WAS LEAVING YOU.
I THOUGHT OF ALL THE YESTERDAY'S
THE GOOD ONES AND THE BAD,
I THOUGHT OF ALL THE LOVE WE SHARED,
AND ALL THE FUN WE HAD.
IF I COULD RELIVE YESTERDAY JUST EVEN FOR AWHILE,
I'D SAY GOOD-BYE AND KISS YOU AND MAYBE EVEN SMILE.
BUT THEN I FULLY REALIZED,
THAT THIS COULD NEVER BE
FOR EMPTINESS AND MEMORIES,
WOULD TAKE THE PLACE OF ME,
AND WHEN I THOUGHT OF WORLDLY THINGS,
I MIGHT MISS COME TOMORROW,
I THOUGHT OF YOU AND WHEN I DID
MY HEART WAS FILLED WITH SORROW
BUT WHEN I WALKED THROUGH HEAVEN'S GATE
I FELT SO MUCH AT HOME
WHEN GOD LOOKED DOWN AND SMILED AT ME
FROM HIS GREAT GOLDEN THRONE.





IF TEARS COULD BUILD A STAIRWAY

IF TEARS COULD BUILD A STAIRWAY,
AND MEMORIES WERE A LANE,
I WOULD WALK RIGHT UP TO HEAVEN
AND BRING YOU BACK AGAIN.

NO FAREWELL WORDS WERE SPOKEN,
NO TIME TO SAY GOOD-BYE,
YOU WERE GONE BEFORE I KNEW IT
AND ONLY GOD KNOWS WHY.

MY HEART STILL ACHES IN SADNESS
AND SECRET TEARS STILL FLOW,
WHAT IT MEANT TO LOSE YOU
NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW.

BUT NOW I KNOW YOU WANT ME
TO MOURN FOR YOU NO MORE,
TO REMEMBER ALL THE HAPPY TIMES
LIFE STILL HAS MUCH IN STORE.

SINCE YOU'LL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN
I PLEDGE TO YOU TODAY
A HALLOWED PLACE WITH MY HEART
IS WHERE YOU'LL ALWAYS STAY.
