These are the lyrics of the songs that you have listened to on our pages, and also I have added some more poems.

The song playing now is
Fly
By Celine Dion

Fly, fly little wing
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven's love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world or ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again

Fly, fly precious one
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far to beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forevermore
But hold this mem'ry bittersweet
Until we meet

Fly, Fly do not fear
Don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don't wait for me
Above the universe you'll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But we won't forget

Fly, Fly little wing
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right
Go now, find the light




Tears In Heaven
by Eric Clapton

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven
Will it be the same
If I saw you in heaven
I must be strong, and carry on
Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven
I'll find my way, through night and day
Cause I know I just can't stay
Here in heaven

Time can bring you down
Time can bend your knee
Time can break your heart
Have you begging please
Begging please

Beyond the door
There's peace I'm sure.
And I know there'll be no more...
Tears in heaven

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven
Will it be the same
If I saw you in heaven
I must be strong, and carry on
Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven
Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven




My Heart Will Go On
by Celine Dion

Every night in my dreams I see you, I feel you,
That is how I know you go on,
Fast across the distance and spaces between us
You have come to show you go on
Near, far, wherever you are,

I believe that the heart does go on.
Once more, you open the door
And you're here in my heart,
And my heart will go on and on

Love can touch us one time and last for a lifetime,
And never let go till we're gone.
Love was when I loved you, one true time I hold to
In my life we'll always go on.
Near, far, wherever you are,

I believe that the heart does go on.
Once more, you open the door
And you're here in my heart,
And my heart will go on and on.

You're here, there's nothing I fear,
And I know that my heart will go on.
We'll stay forever this way,
You are safe in my heart,
And my heart will go on and on.




Truly Madly Deeply
by Savage Garden

I'll be your dream, I'll be your wish,
I'll be your fantasy
I'll be your hope, I'll be your love,
Be everything that you need
I'll love you more with every breath
Truly madly deeply do

I will be strong, I will be faithful
Cos I'm counting on
A new beginning, a reason for living,
A deeper meaning... yeah

I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea
I wanna lay like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me

And when the stars are shining brightly
In the velvet sky
I'll make a wish send it to heaven,
And make you want to cry
The tears of joy for all the pleasure
In the certainty
That we're surrounded by the comfort
And protection of the highest powers,
In lonely hours
The tears devour you

I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea
I wanna lay like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me

Oh can you see it baby?
You don't have to close your eyes,
Cos it's standing right before you
All that you need will surely come

I'll be your dream, I'll be your wish,
I'll be your fantasy
I'll be your hope, I'll be your love,
Be everything that you need
I'll love you more with every breath
Truly madly deeply do

I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea
I wanna lay like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me
I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea
I want to live like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me

- LITTLE ANGELS -

When God calls little children
To dwell with Him above
We mortals sometimes question
The wisdom of his love.
For no heartache compares with
the death of one small child,
who does so much to make our world
seem wonderful and mild.
Perhaps God tires of calling
the aged to his fold,
So he picks a rosebud
before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them,
and so he only takes but few,
to make the land of Heaven
more beautiful to view
Believing this is difficult
still somehow we must try.
The saddest word that mankind knows is goodbye.
So when a little child departs,
we who are left behind
must realise God loves children
Angels are hard to find.

Little Child Of Mine

"I'll lend you for a little time a child of mine" he said
For you to love him 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 should 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 in my search for teachers true
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes, I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love, not think the labor vain?
Nor hate me when I come to call to take him back again?

I fancied that I heard them say, "Dear Lord, thy will be done".
For all the joy the 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 the happiness we've known, forever grateful stay
But should the angels call for him much sooner than we've planned
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand.

-Edgar A Guest-



Don't Mourn for Me

Mother, please don't mourn for me;
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side
each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free,
but I’ll never depart
As long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I’ll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star
on a summer night.

I’ll never be beyond your reach –
I'm the warm moist sand
when you're at the beach.

I'm the colorful leaves
when fall comes around,
And the pure white snow
that blankets the ground.

I'm the beautiful flowers
Of which you're so fond –
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

I'm the first bright blossom
you'll see in the spring;
The first warm raindrop
that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light
when the sun starts to shine.
And you'll see
that the face in the moon is mine.

When you start thinking
there is no one to love you.
You can talk to me
through the Lord above you.
I’ll whisper my answer
through the leaves on the trees,
And you'll feel my presence
in the soft summer breeze.

I'm the hot salty tears
that flow when you weep
And the beautiful dreams
that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.

Just look for me, Mom,
I'm every place!

Dearest Mommy,

When you wonder the meaning of life and love
Know that I am with you,
Close your eyes and feel me kissing you
in the gentle breeze across your cheek,

When you begin to doubt that you shall ever see me again
Quiet your mind and hear me,
I am in the whisper of the heavens
Speaking of your love.

When you lose your identity
When you question who you are and where you are going,
Open your heart and see me.
I am the twinkle in the stars smiling down upon you,
Lighting the path for your journey.

When you awaken each morning
Not remembering your dreams
But feeling content and serene
Know that I was with you -
Filling your night with thoughts of me

When you linger in the remnant pain
Wholeness seeming so unfamiliar
Think of me and
Know that I am with you,
Touching you thru the shared tears of a gentle friend
Easing the pain

As the sunrise illuminates the desert sky
In the breathtaking glory, awaken your spirit
Think of our time, all too brief, but ever brilliant.
When you were certain of us, together
When you were certain of your destiny

Know that God created that moment in time,
Just for us
Dearest Mommy, I am with you always.

Heavens Special Child

A meeting was held quite far from Earth
It's time again for another birth
Said the Angel to the Lord above
This Special Child will need much love
His progress may seem slow
Accomplishments he may not show
And he'll require extra care
From folks he meets way down there
He may not run, laugh or play
His thoughts may seem quite far away
In many ways he won't adapt
And he'll be known as handicapped
So let's be careful where he's sent
We want his life to be content
Please Lord find the parents who
Will do this Special job for you
They will not realize it right away
The Special role they're asked to play
But with this child sent from above
Comes a richer much stronger love
Soon they'll know the privilege given
In caring for this gift from Heaven
Their precious gift so meek, and mild
He is Heaven's Special Child!

But A Moment

You'll always be my child-I think of you each day
Even though you must remain so very far away,
A love as strong as this,I've never felt before
But you had to go away-up through heavens door.
You'll never have to suffer,or feel pain or hate,
just peace and love and happiness---
God has given you this fate.
I hope that you can feel just how much I care;
And,When my days are over,in a flash- I will be there.
Pure unbounding joy! We'll never have to part
You'll be right by my side-And not just in my heart,
But, until that day,when my dream is real-
I think I understand,just how I should feel..
"Mom, I am fine!" this must be what you would say-
"Please don't be so sad, we'll meet again one day;
I'm with God above- so don't cry for me,
Our parting is but a moment compared to eternity."



Inside

It is a beautiful day.
The sun is shining.
The birds sing a chorus line extenuating
the extravagant scene that surrounds, bombards me.
The river keeps a vigilant rhythm.
Vivid colors hurdle their irredescence at me.
Inside, despite the laughter of children and the glorious display of life,
I die a little each day.
Anger seeps in where joy should reside.
I feel deprived.
Given a gift more spectacular than the sunrise,
and to have that light snuffed out too soon,
squelches the fire that once burned inside of me.
I wither inside without that piece that made me whole.
That was fuel for my flame that burned so bright,
radiating even the darkest of nights.
There is no bounty, no beauty without you there.
The birds' sweet song is off-key.
The luminous colors muted by the loss of thee.
The sun's rays burn through me.
The river is an irritating trickle in the distance.
The children's laughter seems to mock my loss; for once you laughed,
but now it is but a distant memory I have lost.
Anger fills the space where once you stood, embraced by my love.
You were the only one who really understood.
Where once colors were vibrant and striking, now attack me.
I am lacking.
But now I will put on my face and paint the smile that is expected.
If per-chance you are not distracted by my attempt and look past my mask,
you will see the pain I carry inside.

--COPYRIGHT 1999 MARSHA KENNEDY—


Some souls pass through this life time like a gentle summer rain.
They touch our hearts and then return to heaven once again.


" Only a mother who has been through this same kind of heartbreak at watching their child die, could possibly understand what it does to your life, which is never ever the same again. One member of your beloved family, is always missing. The heartache stays forever."
