I Wish I Could See You One More Time
Come Walking Through My Door
But, I Know That Is Impossible
I Will Hear Your Voice No More
I Know You Can Feel My Tears
And You Don’t Want Me To Cry
Yet, My Heart Is Broken
Because I Can’t Understand Why
Someone So Precious Had To Die
I Pray That God Will Give Me Strength
And Somehow Get Me Through
As I Struggle With This Heartache
That Was Caused By Losing You
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY ROBERT
THERE'S A NEW STAR IN THE HEAVENS,
HOW BRIGHTLY IT DOES SHINE.
THIS STAR WAS BORN AUGUST TENTH,
OF TWO THOUSAND NINE.
IT WASN'T THERE BEFORE THEN,
FOR ROBERT WAS WITH US STILL.
HIS LIGHT BECAME THIS BRIGHT STAR,
WE CAN SEE HIM IF WE WILL!
WE'LL ALWAYS MISS HIS SMILING FACE,
AND HIS LAUGHTER WE CAN'T HEAR.
BUT WHEN WE FIND HIS STAR AT NIGHT,
WE WILL KNOW THAT HE IS NEAR.
WE WILL SEE OUR LIVES GO ON,
AND SOME WILL TRAVEL FAR,
BUT WE CAN FIND BOTH LIFE AND LOVE,
IN THE LIGHT FROM ROBERT'S STAR.
Still Missing You
They say there is a reason
They say that time will heal
But neither time nor reason
Will change the way we feel.
For no one knows the heartache
that lies behind our smiles,
No one knows how many times
we have broken down and cried.
We want to tell you something
so there won't be any doubt,
You're so wonderful to think of
but so hard to be without.
We cannot bring the old days back,
when we were all together
The family chain is broken now,
but memories live forever.
The Rose Still Grows Beyond The Wall
Near a shady wall a rose once grew,
Budded and blossomed in God's free light:
Watered and fed by morning dew,
Shedding its sweetness day and night.
As it grew and blossomed fair and tall,
Slowly rising to loftier height,
It came to a crevice in the wall,
Through which there shone a beam of light.
Onward it crept with added strength
With never a thought of fear or pride,
It followed the light through the crevice length,
And unfolded itself on the other side.
The light, the dew, the broadening view
Were found the same as they were before.
And it lost itself in beauties new.
Breathing its fragrance more and more.
Shall claim of death cause us to grieve,
And make our courage faint or fall?
Nay, let us faith and hope receive,
The rose still grows beyond the wall.
Scattering fragrance far and wide,
Just as it did in days of yore.
Just as it did on the other side,
Just as it will forevermore.
Happy Birthday !!! Love and miss you !!!
Merry Christmas !!! Love and miss you !!!
Happy Valentine's Babyboy!!!!
Love and Miss you!!!
