In Loving Memory Of Kayley

16 March 2000 - 23 September 2000



     HAPPY 3 rd BIRTHDAY, Kayley!!!







Please allow the beautiful wav sound by Josh Groban "To where you are" to open, it may take some time






It’s a year since I held you to my breast

while you took your last breath.

I cannot express the pain I feel knowing

that I will not hear you call “Mommy”,

see you grow tall or hold your child in my arms


I miss your beautiful smile, the laughter

in your eyes, the delightful little sounds you made.

Your cry, your sweet smell, as you sucked at my breast

And your precious face as I watched you sleep.


I will never understand why you were given to us

to love and cherish for such a brief time.

To see you in pain and then have to give you up

Before we could fulfil our dreams for you.


Kayley, I love and miss you.

I will carry you forever in my heart.

Only when I can feel peace within,

Will I grieve a little less and have joyful memories.

Rest in peace my precious little one.

Go ahead and mention my child,
The one that died, you know.
Don't worry about hurting me further,
The depth of my pain does not show.
Don't worry about making me cry,
I'm already crying inside.
Help me to heal by releasing
The tears I try to hide.
I'm hurt when you just keep silent,
Pretending she didn't exist.
I'd rather you mention my child,
Knowing that she has been missed
You ask me how I was doing,
I say "pretty good" or "fine".
But healing is something on going,
I feel it will take a lifetime.

-Elizabeth Dent-





No words I write can ever say,
How much I miss you everyday.
As time goes by the loneliness grows,
How I miss you...nobody knows.
I think of you in silence,
I often speak your name.
But all I have are memories,
And a photo in frame.
No one see's me weep.
But the love I have for you,
Is in my heart and mine to keep.
I never stopped loving you,
I don't think I ever will.
Deep inside my heart,
You are with me still.
Heartaches this world are many,
But mine is worse than any.
My heart still aches as I whisper low,
"I need you....and miss you so."
The things we feel so deeply,
Are often the hardest things to say.
But I just can't keep quiet anymore,
So I'll tell you anyway.
There is a place in my heart,
That no one can fill.
I love you...and I always will.

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 chooses 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

Who can say for certain
Maybe you're still here
I feel you all around me
Your memories so clear

Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
You're still an inspiration
Can it be
That you are mine
Forever love
And you are watching over me from up above

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
to know you're there
A breath aways, not far
To where you are

Are you gently sleeping
Here inside my dream
And isn't faith believing
All power can't be seen
As my heart holds you
Just one beat away
I cherish all you gave me

Cause you are mine
Forever love
Watching me from up above
And I believe
That angel breathe
And that love will live on and never leave

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
To know you're there
A breath aways not far
To where you are

I know you're there
A breath aways not far
To where you are

-Josh Groban-
