Memorial website in the memory of your loved one
His legacy
just for you shawn  
Just a second ago-
A tear ran down my cheek again,
Just thinking of you
and remembering when...
My mind is consumed with you
all of the time,
Some thoughts make me smile
and some not so kind.

Just a minute ago-
I thought I saw you
walking down the street.
I rushed to see you,
only to find a stranger to meet.
"Excuse me," but you looked
like my son to me.
The pain and sadness comes flooding back, as I realize the reality.

Just an hour ago-
I went to your room
where you once slept.
I touched the treasures of your life,
you so fondly kept.
I call your name and smell your scent, but you're not here.
Even though you're far away,
I can feel your presence near.
Just a day ago-
I visited you, as I often do
from time to time.
Your precious memory is
so vivid in my mind.
The remembrance of you is now
etched upon a stone,
And when I close my eyes,
I imagine you by his throne.

Just a week ago-
I saw a friend of yours
and she greeted me with a smile.
We reminisced about you,
and old times for awhile.
But in her eyes,
I saw the sadness she tried to hide,
And as she turned and went away,
I saw you walking by her side.

Just a month ago-
I looked through our photo album
of a happy family,
And life we once knew,
Now I look toward God,
and trust his love and strength
Will carry me through.

Just a year ago-
You entered the room,
to tell us you were still here.
That was changed in a moment,
and now we're living a parent's fear.
Our joy has vanished,
along with our future of hope,
We are having to live life without you,
and just trying to cope.

Just a lifetime ago-
I pray for you and you appear
to me in my elusive dreams.
Your nearness is so close and real,
or so it seems.
I hear your voice,
and you're a vision of beauty, full of grace,
But I know you can't stay, f
or you live in a different time
And another place.

Just for now-
I wait for life to pass on by
and imagine what might have been.
Looking forward to that glorious day
when we'll be together again.
And on that wonderful day,
when my time has finally come.....

Just for eternity-
I'll be with you in God's holy kingdom

I AM NOT THERE  

I am not there

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the snow on the mountain's rim,
I am the laughter in children's eyes,
I am the sand at the water's edge,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle Autumn rain,
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the star that shines at night,
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.
