To choose between destruction and life when you are cheated
When his eyes don't light up anymore on seeing you
A bucket full of joy be always around you
A sky of protective light to surround you
Let strength be a basket full
And Courage to overcome the tough times and the darkest night
Rainbow hues to brighten your iridescent light
Lullabies of Hope and Peace
And Laughter like the symphonies of a thousand skies
Let dreams be a handful
And may you rise above the clouds!
Fourteen years ago when I held you in my arms, it seemed surreal. So fragile you were and like a tiny doll. Only God knows how much I miss being able to pick you up and hug you tightly close to my heart whenever I feel depressed.
And yet I love you now all the more. You are so special to me and always shall be. Our family has shared so many joys and so much heartbreak through the swiftly passing years.
You are sunshine and daybreak and iridescent rainbow hues.
The baby has been replaced with a very special friend.
Happy Birthday Sweet Daughter!
From Your Mother

When SILENCE is all I have to give
for the walls within which I live
leave no space for words;
feelings float in random swirl
'till they collide and burn bright
in brilliant flames of red and blue
lighting my inner space;
No walls can bind me now
I am within and without
I am here and now
I am inside and outside
I am the alpenglow.
Even the most beautiful flower
must carry the curse to wilt
and even in its dying hour
new life upon it is built.
No longer will it grace our eyes,
but through death it is still giving.
A new purpose is served through it's demise:
the chance to nourish the living.
