Forever Young

In the past 11 months, I have experienced a lifetime of firsts. Your first birthday....after your death, Memorial Day....after your death, the anniversary of your injury in August that started us down this road, September...the week Taylor and I came to visit you. birthday....the first one without you here...last year you were...


Here I am and would give anything to hear you
I would give a big hug so tight
I would have helped you make it right
So many demons and dark issues would appear
You were so strong you never shed a tear
We were so much alike
In so many ways
I was your mini me
Up until the very next day
I'll always love you my dad my best friend
I pray and hope...

You won't get very far, no more running back to me
My life is a happy one and I was set free
To be happy, to laugh and live my life
You know nothing about being a wife
Too Selfish to understand
Too arrogant to be part...


I've lost some battles 

but won the war

its so important

snd so much more

I strive each day to make a new

a start to be a brand new you

I'm excited to be all that I am 

and so much more

like I said I lost the battle

but I won the war

I wake up each day 

and thank the Lord

for always showing me 



in a moment in time

my world changed so fast

ill never forget how hard I worked

to put behind me my past

memories always remind me

Time goes way too fast

love one anonther 

and make it last

in a moments time

your life can change 

1, 2, 3, I learned its best

to worry about me

and of course my family

As parents, we all want our children to be remembered. This does not change once a child dies. What does change is that people will often stop talking about our children once they no longer exist in this physical world. For a bereaved parent, our children will always exist. They exist in our hearts, in our memories...
