~ Our Only Son ~

They ask
If I saw you at all
For one brief moment- just a glimpse
But then you
were whisked away -out of my sight
I didn't know it was to be
The only time

They ask
If I held you at all
For nine short months -under my heart
Too soon you
were gone -I never saw your smile
Still, I see it every day
In my heart

~ By Jan Michelle

~ IF ~
If I could take a minute out of each and every day.

To hold my child close to my heart and kiss his fears away.

If I could take a minute out of each and every week, 

To play with blocks and peek-a-boo, tag or hide and seek. 

If I could take a minute of any span of time. 

I'd never waste a second of the pleasures that were mine. 

If he could crawl upon my knee and lay his sleepy head, 
upon my shoulder tenderly and dream of things we'd said.
I'd spend my time in total bliss and watch my small son grow, 

From babyhood to childhood, knowing all there is to know. 

If I could stop my aching heart and put my mind to sleep, 

If I could stop the flow of tears that are always on my cheek.

I only need a minute, God, I know he's safe with you. 

But there's something so important that I had no time to do. 

If you could do it for me, please, here's a message he should know,

tell him that I love him, then I will let him go.

~  FLY ~

Fly, fly little wing
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heavens love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again.

Fly, fly precious one
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forever more
But hold this memory bittersweet
Until we meet.

Fly, fly do not fear
Don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don't wait for me
Above the universe you'll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But I won't forget.

Fly, fly little wing
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away the time is right
Go now, find the light.


Above lyrics are from the song "Fly" by Celine Dion
