Wish I Had the Why (Shelly Fraley, BMI)

 

I wish I had the Why,

The Why for every woe,

Cause we’re all chasing ghosts,

Something we loved the most,

Lost along the way

 

Looking for a reason Why,

Why the dark comes out some days,

Why it takes your peace away and it breaks you down inside

 

When your peace like a river,

runs dry like the desert land,

I’ve seen the darkness fall and rise up from the sand, from the sand

 

Wish I had the words, the words to make it alright.....

 

*****************************************************************************

What many of us bereaved parent's are feeling this holiday...wishing everyone a gentleness of days...

"If I Could Be Where You Are"
 

Where are you this moment?
Only in my dreams.
You're missing, but you're always
A heartbeat from me.
I'm lost now without you,
I don't know where you are.
I keep watching, I keep hoping,
But time keeps us apart

Is there a way I can find you,
Is there a sign I should know,
Is there a road I could follow
To bring you back home?

Winter lies before me
Now you're so far away.
In the darkness of my dreaming
The light of you will stay

If I could be close beside you
If I could be where you are
If I could reach out and touch you
And bring you back home
Is there a way I can find you
Is there a sign I should know
Is there a road I can follow
To bring you back home to me

Wings of Angels by Judy Collins

She wrote this for her son, Clark, who committed suicide

 

 

Wings of angels tears of saints
Prayers and promises won't bring you back
Come to me in dreams again
Wings of angels tears of saints

I lost you on a winter's day
In that cold city far away
A city by a river deep
With promises you could not keep
A place where you had gone to try
A place where you had longed to fly
A city smiling when you cried
A city sleeping when you died

Wings of angels tears of saints
Prayers and promises won't bring you back
Come to me in dreams again
Wings of angels tears of saints

In that cathedral by the hill
We stood and smiled in happier days
The fields along the river's edge
You fished and traveled hungrily
Your light burned in that sunny sky
Your voice above the water rang
I'd give it up give all I have
For one more chance to hear you sing

Wings of angels tears of saints
Prayers and promises won't bring you back
Come to me in dreams again
Wings of angels tears of saints

Child of thunder in the dark child whose voice was like a lark
Child whose spirits lifted hearts child of many beauties

When the birds flock to the south
When the wind calls to the north
You are in the falling snow
You are beauty going forth
You are heat and you are light
Sun above the mountain's peak
I would give the sun and moon
Once more just to hear you speak

Wings of angels tears of saints
Prayers and promises won't bring you back
Come to me in dreams again
Wings of angels tears of saints

Wrote this as I sat with my son, Brooks, at his grave.

 

I cried aloud into the night as I sat before the grave

Seeking holy answers for the son I could not save

 

Asking the Lord to light the way

Keeping my journey from going astray

 

I told him of my burdens and the sadness in my heart

I’d never felt so alone or so very far apart

 

Why did you take my child, Lord? I just can’t understand

No longer can I touch his face or hold his precious hand

 

I'm angry, God, missing him and drowning in my sorrow

Please help me heal my yesterday and face each new tomorrow

 

It was then I heard his voice and felt a presence near

How I wanted to hold him as I shed another tear

 

Dad, I'm safe now and my spirit is flying free

I'm singing in Heaven’s choir, so please don't cry for me

 

I was chosen by the Father above, and now I'm in His care

When you need me, look inside your heart, I promise to be there

 

No one can take away our bond with one another

For I will always be your precious child, as you will be my father

 

So if you can’t find your way, or the road to home seems so very far

Just look to the twinkling night and I will be your guiding star

ktlearn--Stephen's Mom

I found this poem in a book a couple of days after Stephen's passing. We used the poem in the brochure we created for his memorial service.

For both my sons, sending love to heaven...

 

Gone Too Soon by Daughtry

 

Not a day goes by,
That I don't think of you,
I'm always asking why this crazy world had to lose,
Such a ray of light we never knew,
Gone too soon, yeah.

Would you have been president
Or a painter, an author, or sing like your mother?
One thing is evident,
Would've given all I had,
Would've loved you like no other.

Who would you be,
What would you look like,
Would you have my smile and her eyes?
Today could have been the next day of the rest of your life.

Not a day goes by,
That I don't think of you,
I'm always asking why this crazy world had to lose,
Such a ray of light we never knew,
Gone too soon, yeah.

Not a day goes by,
Oh
I'm always asking why.

Not a day goes by,
That I don't think of you,
I'm always asking why this crazy world had to lose,
Such a beautiful light we never knew,
Gone too soon,
You were gone too soon
Yeah.

Not a day goes by,
That I don't think of you.

My son and two cousins passed away in a car accident on Thanksgiving Day 2005.  Here's a poem my daughter wrote at the time:

 

Some believe Angels

Are Always Protecting Us

But The Questions Is Not

Whether Angels Exist or Not

It's Who You Believe They Are

 

The Angels Who Hover Over Me

Are No Strangers

They Are My Loved Ones

Who Left This Earth

And No Longer Suffering

The harsh realities Of This World

 

I Believe That They Protect Me

With Their Love

In Their World There

Are No Bombs

No War

No Pain

No Misfortune

 

I Believe They Will

Never leave My Side

Even After My Time Is UP

Thank you Laural for sharing the poem written by your daughter...I am sorry for the loss of your son and his two cousins...we don't know the "why", but I do believe their love continues on; and like your daughter wrote so elegantly, that they watch over us from where they are...sending gentle wishes for the day...

Thank you for your kind words. You're right we never know why and it serves us no purpose to focus on that. I always try and focus on the positive and all the love and joy my son brought into our lives. God Bless You

Address in the Stars

 

I stumbled across your old picture today

I could barely breathe

The moment stopped me cold

Grabbed me like a thief

I dialed your number

But you wouldn't be there

I knew the whole time, but it's still not fair

I just wanted to hear your voice

I just needed to hear your voice

What do I do with all I need to say

So much I wanna tell you every day

Oh, it breaks my heart

I cry these tears in the dark

I write these letters to you

But they get lost in the blue

There's no address in the stars

Now I'm driving through the pitch-black dark

I'm screaming at the sky, oh

cause it hurts so bad

everybody tells me that all I need is time

Then the morning rolls in and it hits me again

And that ain't nothing but a lie

What do I do with all I need to say

So much I wanna tell you every day

Oh, it breaks my heart

I cry these tears in the dark

I write these letters to you

But they get lost in the blue

There's no address in the stars

Without you here with me

I don't know what to do

I'd give anything just to talk to you

Oh, it breaks my heart, oh, it breaks my heart

All I can do is write these letters to you

But there's no address in the stars
