Letting Go

You’re still here in my heart and mind,

still making me laugh for your stories live on.

I hold you in a thought and I can feel you.

I feel you and this gives me strength and courage.

The tears I have cried for you could flood the earth

and I know you have wiped each one away.

For you my Brother, I promise you this,

I will go on with my life and make you proud.

I will always hold you in my heart.

I will be missing you everyday till the end of time,

but this is not my end and I need to breathe.

I need to love and miss you, but I also need to live because

through me you will live,

you will still laugh and love,

you will still sing and dance,

you will still hug and kiss.

You will forever be in our lives,

you will forever be a brother,

a son,

an uncle

and friend.

I am going to miss your shining face

I think of you and wonder why?

I might cry or smile,

but at the end of the day I am one day closer to you….

No Tears In Heaven

There are no tears in Heaven

so I have left behind this single,

little teardrop to lovingly remind

though absent from the body,

I’m present with the Lord;

the joy of my salvation

is now my full reward.

And just as God has promised,

He’s wiped my tears away,

and nothing can compare to

the wonder of that day.

So wear this in my memory,

and know that up above

there are no tears in Heaven,

instead there’s only love.

After Glow

I’d like the memory of me

to be a happy one.

I’d like to leave an after glow

of smiles when life is done.

I’d like to leave an echo

whispering softly down the ways,

Of happy times and laughing times

and bright and sunny days.

I’d like the tears of those who grieve,

to dry before the sun

of happy memories

that I leave when life is done.

Weep Not For Me

Weep not for me though I have gone

Into that gentle night

Grieve if you will, but not for long

Upon my soul’s sweet flight

I am at peace, my soul’s at rest

There is no need for tears

For with your love I was so blessed

For all those many years

There is no pain, I suffer not

The fear is now all gone

Put now these things out of your thoughts

In your memory I live on

Remember not my fight for breath

Remember not the strife

Please do not dwell upon my death

But celebrate my life.
