Golden Memories
They say memories are golden, well, maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories, I only wanted you.
A million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place no one else could fill.
If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane.
I'd walk the path to Heaven and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us back one by one, the chain will link again.

excerpted from the book entitled
by Emily Margaret Stuparyk

You were a bright light for me
My shining star
Now the light has gone out
How will I go on!

I loved you in life and
I love you in death
Such sadness has swept me
Away like a tidal wave
Carried me to another place
And now, someone else remains to grieve
Because my pain is indescribable.

You were my strength
My brave little soldier
And now, the strength has gone from me too
I miss you, so desperately.

You were everything to me
You gave me so much joy
And now, the angels are the lucky ones
As they watch you romp on heaven's greens.

But I too was lucky once,
She loved me with all her heart
We bonded in life, and now in death
I'll carry her wherever I go.
