Thank you Kim!
A dear lady said to me "Kim, it will get *different* with time.....it won't be as RAW one day, but
sweetie the pain will be there forever".
In The coolness of the evening...
the sun is going down,
The shadows of the stately trees...
Are long upon the ground.
A gentle breeze comes blowing.
skies begin to gray,
Sunset's rays are glowing
All mark the end of day.
The birds have ceased their singing,
seek their nightly place,
The stars begin appearing...
And fill the darkening space.
The toils of this day are over.
is the time for rest...
With comfort in the knowledge
That I have done my best.
The dawn will come tomorrow,
bring a brighter day,
And all the disappointments
Should surely pass away.
The noon-day sun, high in the sky...
warm my heart and soul,
And be a source of strength...
To help me reach my goal.
When the day is finished...
the sun sets in the west,
I can say within my heart...
"Today, I did my best!"

In Loving Memory of All Our Angels
Someone once said, silence is golden
They have never experienced the loss of a child
Silence to a grieving parent is not golden
It's become an enemy to us who grieve
We call out for just one sound from our child
The silence only deepens our grief
We plea and bargain to hear our child just once more
Just to hear a hi mom or hey dad
We ask for nothing more
Silence steals what we most want to hear
Any sound made by our child's voice
Letting us know they are near
Yes silence may be golden to some
To a grieving parent it is not
Only because we miss our loved one
