i miss you so much
I just donít understand how you can be here one minute,
And then gone so quick.
I understand you suffered, and I understand you were sick,
But my world is so empty now, and lost is how I feel,
And itís by your bedside that I cry as I kneel,
Your things are untouched and your rooms still the same,
And every time itís quiet, I hope youíll call my name.
Because it was a mum that you made me, and a mum that I am.
It was something more than just love that we shared,
But a life and two souls, magically paired.
When you left, I lost your half,
But you left me with memories and you taught me to laugh.
Your life to me was a gift of love, and something ill treasure forever, As you smile, and look after me from heaven above.
A Special Child!
Their was a child born one day,
A special child, some might say,
He laughed, he smiled, he never cried,
But I couldnít keep him forever, though I tried,
I wanted to wrap him, in my arms so tight,
Id never let go without a fight,
But his time had come, and he had too go,
Far too soon, and my tears, they flow,
He left me, with memories of love,
As he got his wings, and flew above,
He was here for a reason, still unknown,
But his love and memories, continues too grow,
A guardian angel, for me too keep,
watching mummy, as she sleeps,
Always in my heart, and always by my side.

No-one feels like me!
No-one feels like me, and no-one understands,
The grief stands between us, separates our hands,
I no your not in your garden, but always by my side,
But itís somewhere to go and think of you,
And my tears I do not hide,
Our special little place, where time is just for you,
But no-one understands me baby; I just wish they knew,
I still feel like a mum, and im doing something just for you,
Instead of just moving on, and plodding through,
And when im feeling low and I really canít cope,
I go and see your garden, I have my cry,
And then im filled with hope.
Because one day baby, weíll be together again, me and mummyís little boy
When a child is born!
When a child is born itís like a star so bright,
But when that child is lent to you, it leaves with the night,
And if your one of the special ones, youíll be chosen for that child,
Youíll be happy or sad, or even wild,
But youíve chosen for a reason, and carer is your task,
Theyíll bring you joy, happiness and love,
And the pain their smile will mask,
Their like fairies, pixies and angels, like a fantasy,
But these little children are here, as real as can be.
They have pain, suffering and illness, but this you never see,
But only love, happiness and giggling with glee,
So on your borrowed time, love is what youíll feel the most,
And when that light goes out, what youíre left with is not a ghost,
But a darling little angel, and a star brighter than most.
So take youíre thoughts and memories, and cherish them with love,
Because youíre darling babies are angels, flying high, up above.
How I feel!
I wish I was understood more,
And people knew how I felt,
I didnít pick this life; itís just what I was dealt,
Everybodyís different; no two people are the same,
Lifeís not like a book, nor is it a game,
Belief is what you believe in, something to respect,
Belief is in your heart, something to protect,
I look fine to your face, but crumpling in my heart,
My voice fine to your ear, but the pain I fear,
I miss him so much, please just one more touch.
I love you my darling
I love you my darling, with all my heart,
You took my breath, right from the start,
Be sure to know I love you loads,
Itís not the end of our journey,
Just one of the roads,
Wait for me; guide me to the light,
For you are my angel, in the sky so bright,
Iíll wait for the day you take my hand,
And guide me through the dark, to the Promised Land,
For the footsteps you walked and the path left behind,
Is a path to be followed, and me to find,
For you guided so many, and taught hearts how to love,
But itís me, whoís lost the most,
Although youíre happy above.
love you baby x
You were such a big character,
In a body unable to grow,
You touched the hearts of many,
And made the laughter flow,
with your spiky hair and glasses,
such a cute little kid,
but the pain and suffering,
was something your smile hid.
When your legs stopped working,
It was wheels that you had,
And me you loved the most,
Because I was your mum, and your dad.
I had kisses and cuddles galore,
But me being greedy, I still wanted more,
I never thought id lose you,
Because youíve been that sick before,
But your dear little body just couldnít take no more,
You made me the person I am,
And you made my heart whole,
You done your task, you got your wings, and you left your sole,
So here I am today baby, to say goodbye,
And to tell you I love you loads,
And to tell you this isnít the end of our journey,
But just one of the roads.
Just one more touch!
Please god, just one more touch,
A smell of his hair or a kiss on the cheek,
Please god just let me here him speak,
Just three little words, do I ask too much?
Please god just let him call my name,
To play the playstation or change the game,
Please god, just one little hug,
The tiniest little cuddle, lighter than a bug,
Please god am I asking too much,
Please, I beg you, just one more touch.
Ollie in hospital!
There you used to lie in your hospital bed,
Playstation in your hand, huge smile on your head,
Always used to argue and always used to fight,
But you knew baby the nurses were right,
Their was one little button you loved to press,
It was the one for nurses, who sat at the desk,
To change the game or read you a book,
They walked in the door and you gave them that look,
A cheeky little smile and your silly little giggle,
"weíre trying to do your I.VíS stop trying to wriggle"
Such a funny little boy, the centre of the ward,
Now itís all quiet baby, and the nurses are bored,
Every time the buzzer goes they think its you,
But you got your angel wings baby, and up you flew!
Sometimes I forget you're gone
Sometimes I forget you're gone,
A slip in my thoughts,
But it doísnt seem real, just wrong,
Its amazing what life really is,
Just a beat of a heart, and then gone.
I look around,to see if you're near,
And feel nothing,
I donít know where you are,
I donít know if you're here,
I know your watching over me,
Checkin im alrite,
But I cant feel you, and your smile I cant see,
I feel lost without you,
I donít know who I am,
And I donít know what to do,
Its like iv lost my identity,
And ive got to start again,
But without you im nothing,
You was everything to me,
More than plenty,
Youíd say these funny things,
And always make me laugh,
And when times were hard we got through,
Because you was my better half.
I realy miss you baby, and I hope you see how I feel,
And ill always love you darling,
Because that was our deal,
We fought the world together,
I just never realised,
that it was your life in our hands we held.
your fight for life
That night you fought your life,
Was you really their?
It just didnít look like you darling,
It just wasnít fare.
I begged and prayed so hard that night,
And I know you tried baby,
But boy what a fight.
I worry that you left that night,
Because you was so tired,
But changed your mind and couldnít come back, but tried.
I worry that you miss me bad,
We never was apart,
I worry that youíre crying for me baby,
And that pain just grips my heart.
