The roses aren't as pretty
The sun isn't quite as high
The birds don't sing as sweet of a lullaby
The stars are a little bit faded
The clouds are just a little more gray
And it feels like things won't ever be the same

Heaven got another angel the night you left this world behind
Heaven got a little better the day that it took you away from me
I'm missing you tonight
I'll see you again sometime
For now, I'll close my eyes
And dream of heaven tonight

The beaches aren't as lovely
The sky isn't quite as blue
Still, they're sweetened by the memory of you
The rain is a little bit colder
The fire is never quite as warm
Still, it seems that heaven isn't all that far

Heaven got another angel the night you left this world behind
Heaven got a little better the day that it took you away from me
I'm missing you tonight
I'll see you again sometime
For now, I'll close my eyes
And dream of heaven tonight

I'm spending a little more time now with the things that mean a little bit more
I'm noticing the wonders of this world
I love with a little more hope now
I live with a little more peace
Cause I understand how precious life can be

Heaven got another angel the night you left this world behind
Heaven got a little better the day that it took you away from me
I'm missing you tonight
I'll see you again sometime
For now, I'll close my eyes
And dream of heaven tonight

I know it's almost been a year but it still feels like yesterday!

Missing Mommy Dearest

Posted on February 7, 2011 at 12:30am 0 Comments

I lost my mother on Dec 27, 2009 very suddenly. My mother had traveled from Texas to Philly in Sept. 2009 to take care of her 82 yr old sister who was just diagnosed with dimentia. While there helping with her care my mother went for a morning stroll and tripped and broke her femur. She was in ICU… Continue

Colleen,Someone you love has passed away, your heart will ache with sadness, but you have to go on; As you go through this period of sorrow remember; The Bible assures us God "is healing the broken hearted ones, and is binding up their painful spot." Psalm 147:3. If you need to cry, cry Crying may also serve as an emotional release. “For everything there is an appointed time, even . . . a time to weep,” says the Bible. (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 4) Working through grief takes patience You're used to having someone in your life and then there just gone. Grief is a normal way to mend. Even Christ Jesus "became troubled and gave way to tears" at the death of his close friend, Lazarus, although he knew that he would resurrect him just moments later.(John 11:35,38-44) I will pray that your husband will be more comforting to you.

It's been almost 8 months and I am still not ready to talk about it. Why can't I get through this? My mother was my whole world. My father just keeps telling me I gotta get passed the crying and move on! I try so hard when I'm around him to be strong. It's so difficult to be strong when I still feel so empty.
