I really want to say I love you.
But I'm afraid that you would laugh.
And if you laughed when I told you.
It would break my heart in half.
Last night I laid down by myself
Wishing you where here.
As I was thinking about you.
Down my cheek rolled a tear.
Now that we said goodbye, now that we're apart.
I'll always hold our memories, deep within my heart.
Then I saw you again today.
That feeling it came back and will never go away.
Everthing must come to and end.
And I loved loving you,
My Everlasting Friend.
Someone from above must have guided you to me.
For a time we were apart, and the distance not so far.
In just a short time, you have become my shinning star.
As I sit and watch you run and play.
You have touched me more, then words can say.
So every year on this very day no matter where you are.
You can always look up into the sky.
And see your Special Star.
For all the time that we missed.I'll remember the pain.
But we can't go back and live life over again.
All those years we missed and the time has gone by so fast.
I'd like to be with you forever but nothing can last.
So close your eyes and open your heart.
An image of me you'll see, then we'll never be apart.
It's great to have a sister,
You are one of four.
One who's very thoughtful,
And one I can adore.
You are a perfect combination,
Of a good friend and sister too.
I know I don't mention it,
Often enough throughout the year.
But there is one thing I want to say,
I hope love and happiness,
May always come your way.
My New Dad
You're a person with a soul so kind.
In this world I thought I'd never find.
A person so tender and sweet.
In heaven you would have Angles at your feet.
With your eyes shinning and oh so bright,
Not anymore am I afraid of the night.
With your soft words, you comfort me,
A new look on life, I now can see.
Now that I met you I'm so glad,
For you take the place of my lost long dad.
He past away a long time ago,
And around you I can see his glow.
Since I met you I can clearly see,
God must have sent you to watch over me.
My Gramma she passed away.
And I still miss her to this very day.
She use to show me how to cook and bake.
And on my birthday she would make a special cake.
I use to visit her a lot back then.
But now it's been so long I can't remember when.
Her pictures and the memories I did save.
But never have I visited her lonely grave.
I promised I'd visit and go there every day.
Now I wonder what she would say.
I can't go and see where she's buried in the ground.
Because I know she's up there looking down.
I hope that she can understand,
That going there was not a good plan.
On that day, when she passed away.
I wondered how she could have left me this way?
I never had the chance to say my good-byes.
And now I can't keep these tears from my eyes.
---Gramma--- Although we are far apart.
I'll always have this mark; you placed upon my heart.
My Great Grandfather
In my dream the sound of a distant drum.
It was my Great Grandfather in all his wisdom.
He told me he always said in his prayer.
That he hoped there would always be plenty of bear.
He said he always made a wish.
That there would always be plenty of fish.
He remembered lots of wolves and beaver lodges.
And eagles soaring above in the cloudless sky.
BUT he said you could lose it all in the blink of an eye.
My Great Gandfather was pretty wise in his old age.
To see life change in the turning of a page.
He said there is a lesson everyone must know.
Hang onto Mother Nature and never let her go.
