An Angel Never Dies

Don't let them say, I wasn't born
That something stopped my heart
I felt each tender squeeze you gave
I've loved you from the start.

Although my body you can't hold,
It doesn't mean I'm gone.
This world was worthy, not, of me
God chose that I move on.

I know the pain that drowns your soul,
What you are forced to face.
You have my word, I'll fill your arms
Someday we will embrace.

You'll hear that it was "meant to be,
God doesn't make mistakes"
But that won't soften your worst blow..
Or make your heart not ache.

I'm watching over all you do,
another child you'll bear.
Believe me when I say to you,
That I am always there.

There will come a time, I promise you
When you will hold my hand,
Stroke my face and kiss my lips
And then you'll understand.

Although, I've never breathed your air,
Or gazed into your eyes..
That doesn't mean I never "was"
An Angel Never Dies........

Babies Are Angels

Babies are angels that fly to the earth.

Their wings disappear at the time of their birth.
One look in their eyes and we're never the same,
They're part of us now and that part has a name.
That part is your heart and a bond that won't sever.
Our Babies are Angels, and we'll love them forever.

Please Let Me Mourn

I've never lost a child before, and I don't
understand all these emotions I am feeling.
Will you try to understand and help me?

I may act and appear together, but I am not.
Often it hurts so much I can hardly bear it.

Don't expect too much from me. I will try
to help you know what I can and cannot handle.
Sometimes I am not always sure.

Let me talk about my child. I need to talk,
it's part of the healing. Don't pretend nothing
has happened, it hurts terribly when you do.
I love my child very much, and my memories
are all I have now. They are very precious to me.

Sometimes I cry and act differently,
but it's all part of grieving. My tears are
necessary and needed and should not be held back.
It even helps when you cry with me.
Please don't fear my tears.

What I need most is your friendship, your sympathy,
your prayers, your support, and your understanding love.
I am not the same person I was before my child died
and I never will be again.
Hopefully we can all grow from this tragedy.

God gives me the strength to face each day
and the hope that I will survive with His help
and yours. Time will heal some of the pain,
but there will always be an empty place in my heart.

And Thank You for helping me through the most
difficult time of my life.

If tears could build a stairway,
And memories were a lane,
We would walk right up to heaven
To bring you down again.
No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say good-bye.
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.
Our hearts still ache in sadness
And secret tears still flow,
What it meant to lose you,
No one will ever know.
When we are sad and lonely,
And everything goes wrong,
We seem to hear you whisper
"Cheer up and carry on."
Each time we look at your pictures,
You seem to smile and say,
"Don't cry, I'm only sleeping,
We'll meet again someday."

Please Don't Cry

"Daddy please don't look so sad,
momma please don't cry.
Cause I'm in the arms of Jesus,
and he sings me lullabies.
Please try not to question God,
don't think he is unkind.
Don't think he sent me to you
and then changed his mind.
You see I'm a special child,
I am needed up above.
I'm the special gift you gave Him,
a product of your love.
I'll always be there with you,
so watch the sky at night.
Look for the brightest star
and know that's my halo's brilliant light.
You'll see me in the morning frost
that mists your window pane.
That's me in the summer showers,
I'll be dancing in the rain.
When you feel a gentle breeze
from a gentle wind that blows.
Know that it's me
planting a kiss upon your nose.
When you see a child playing
and your heart feels a tug,
Don't be sad mommy,
that's just me giving your heart a hug.
So daddy don't looks so sad
and momma please don't cry.
I'm in the arms of Jesus
and he sings me lullabies!

My Footprints

"These are my footprints,
so perfect and so small.
These tiny footprints
never touched the ground at all.
Not one tiny footprint,
for now I have wings.
These tiny footprints were meant
for other things.
You will hear my tiny footprints,
in the patter of the rain.
Gentle drops like angel's tears,
of joy and not from pain.
You will see my tiny footprints,
in each butterflies' lazy dance.
I'll let you know I'm with you,
if you just give me the chance.
You will see my tiny footprints,
in the rustle of the leaves.
I will whisper names into the wind,
and call each one that grieves.
Most of all, these tiny footprints,
are found on Mommy and Daddy's hearts.
'Cause even though I'm gone now,
We'll never truly part."

Forget Me Not

Our little ones whisper, "Forget me not",
As their specialness wraps around our heart.
Their short little lives Hold meaning and love.
Their spirits have touched us-each and everyone.
They have left their gifts For us to uncover,
If we open our eyes, our hearts and our lives.
The road to discovery is hilly and dark.
Will we long harbor the pain or set our wings for the light?
Our lives have been changed, our paths filled with sorrow.
Yet their memories embrace us and our love lasts forever.
If we open our hearts, their gifts shall unfold,
as we forget them not.

How Pretty you are, how dainty, how small
Only one day we held you, that had to be all
Please, God love our baby; take over from here
Enclosed in your arms, hold our treasure so dear

A very brief time is all we had
Not long could you stay with your Mom & Dad
Great blessings, however, our family has known
Ever more, you'll be with us, and never alone
Love Forever

A Million Times

You never said I'm leaving
You never said good-bye
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knew why

A million times we've needed you,
A million times we've cried.
If love alone could've saved you,
You never would have died.

In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place,
No one else will ever fill.

It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone.
Part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.

When God Calls Little Children

When God Calls Little Children
To dwell with Him above,
We mortals always question
The wisdom of His love.

For no heartache compares
With the death of one small child
Who does so much to make this world
Seem wonderful and mild.

Perhaps God tires of calling
The aged to His fold
And so he picks a rosebud
Before it can grow old.

God knows how much we need them
And so He takes but few
To make the land of heaven
More beautiful to view.

Believing this is difficult,
Still somehow we must try,
The saddest word mankind knows
Will always be goodbye.

So when little ones departs.
We who are left behind
Must realize God loves little children
Angels are hard to find.

They Say There is a Reason

They say there is a reason,
They say that time will heal,
But neither time nor reason,
Will change the way I 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.

My Angel Baby

I never got to see your eyes,
or hold your hand, or hear your cries.
All I have are dreams of you,
those of which, will never come true.
My heart sank the day that I knew,
I would never get to meet you.
I had made plans, and had aspirations,
if only I had a little more patience.
I never thought the Lord would take you
away from me so soon.
But, I'll never forget that dismal day,
around two in the afternoon.
The day I knew something was not right,
and through many tears I would have to fight.
Now, all I do is dream every night,
about what life would have been like.
What if you really had been born?
But all we have a dreams of that,
and all we can do is mourn.
We will not mourn for you though,
because we know you're where you need to be,
even though it isn't here with me.
You are my angel baby because God wanted you with Him.
Now, forever with his angels, His praises you will sing.
None of my dreams for you will ever come true,
because of that day God chose to take you.
But, my angel baby you will always be,
in my heart forever, forever a part of me.

Little Snowdrop

The world may never notice
If a Snowdrop doesn't bloom,
Or even pause to wonder
If the petals fall too soon.
But every life that ever forms,
Or ever comes to be,
Touches the world in some small way
For all eternity.
The little one we long for
Was swiftly here and gone.
But the love that was then planted
Is a light that still shines on.
And though our arms are empty,
Our hearts know what to do.
Every beating of our hearts
Says of our love for you.
~author unknown ...

"Back To Top"


If we could have a lifetime wish
A dream that would come true,
We'd pray to God with all our hearts
For yesterday and You.
A thousand words can't bring you back
We know because we've tried...
Neither will a thousand tears
We know because we've cried...
You left behind our broken hearts
And happy memories too...
But we never wanted memories
We only wanted You.

Please Don't Ever Tell Me

I'm going to tell you something I hope you'll never have to know.
I'll tell you how a heart can break
And tears can constant flow.

I lost my baby girl you see,
An angel in my eyes
God chose to take her hand one day
And led her to the skies.

But please do not forget my child
She was a person too
And forever she will live
Inside of me and you.

So, please don't ever tell me
That time will heal my pain
Because not even time
Can bring her back again.

Just tell me she is happy
In that land way up above
She's snuggled in an angels wings
All wrapped in Mommy's love.

What I wouldn't give
To have you in my arms again,
Breathe your scent
And snuggle close to you.
I want to watch you sleep,
See your chest rise and fall
In peaceful slumber.
Let me lay my hand
Over your heart,
So I can
Feel it beating
Beneath my touch.
I want to be
Lulled to sleep
By its rhythm.

Death of a Child

Sorry I didn't get to stay.
To laugh and run and play.
To be there by your side.
I'm sorry that I had to die.

God sent me down to be with you,
to make your loving heart anew.
To help you look up and see
Both God and little me.

Mommy, I wish I could stay.
Just like I heard you pray.
But, all the angels did cry
when they told little me goodbye.

God didn't take me cause He's mad.
He didn't send me to make you sad.
But to give us both a chance to be
a love so precious .. don't you see?

Up here no trouble do I see
and the pretty angels sing to me.
The streets of gold is where I play
you'll come here too, mommy, someday.

Until the day you join me here,
I'll love you mommy, dear.
Each breeze you feel and see,
brings love and a kiss from me.

Her Name Sings my Soul

The mention of my child's name
May bring tears to my eyes,
But it never fails to bring
Music to my ears.

If you are really my friend,
Let me hear the beautiful music of her name.
It soothes my broken heart
And sings to my soul.

A Child of Mine

"I'll lend you for a little time a child of mine," He said.
For you to love - while he lives
And mourn for when he's dead.

It may be six or seven years
Or twenty-two or three,
But will you, till I call him back,
Take care or him for Me?

He'll bring his smiles to gladden you,
And should this stay be brief
You'll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief.

I cannot promise he will stay,
Since all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught down there
I want this child to learn.

I've looked this world over
In search for teachers true,
And from the throngs that crowd
Life's lanes, I have selected you.

Now will you give him all your love, Nor count the labor vain,
Nor hate Me when I come to call to
Take him back again?"

I fancied that I heard then say,
"Dear Lord, Thy will be done,
For all the joy Thy child shall bring,

The risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness,
We'll love him while we may,
And for the happiness we've known
Forever grateful stay.

But should the angels call for him
Much sooner than we've planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that come
And try to understand."

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me

When tomorrow starts without me
And I'm not here to see...
If the sun should rise
And find your eyes filled with tears for me,
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
the way you did today...
While thinking of the many things
we didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me,
as much as I love you...
And each time you think of me,
I know you'll miss me, too.
But when tomorrow starts without me,
please try to understand
That Jesus came and called my name
And took me by the hand,
He said my place was ready in heaven far above...
And that I'd have to leave ...
behind all those I dearly love.
So when tomorrow starts without me,
don't think we're far apart...
For every time you think of me,
I'm right here in your heart.

A Lament for My Baby

I never got to hear you laugh
you never saw me cry
didnt get a chance to say "Hello"
you never said "Goodbye"
I didn't think that I could feel
so sad, lost and forlorn.
I never knew God chose his Angels
before some of them were born.
Your life was short yet special
I shared it all exclusively
I felt you breathe, I felt you kick.
You were alive inside of me.
Every baby is an Angel
and every angel is divine
God needed one in heaven
He came down and took mine
And although we are not together
we're not really apart
for you'll always occupy a space
deep within my heart.
Time has begun to ease my pain
It's only some days now I cry.
When I wish I could have said "Hello"
and heard you say "Goodbye"

Perfect Even In Death

No one remembers,
I cannot say why
Only thing I keep thinking
Is that nobody tried

You were mine, only mine
No one knew you like me
I don't know why He couldn't
Just let you be

We shared so much
In our short time together,
And the time that we shared
Has made memories forever

So much I learned,
So much I lost -
Everything turned, toppled
And tossed

Butterfly flutters, then turns
And kicks . . .
Then, that sad day . . .
Was my mind playing tricks?

No cry, no movement,
not even a Breath . . .
As you lay on my tummy -
Perfect even in death

When I think of you now
At the age you would be,
A beautiful "big boy"
Is the child I see

My son you were,
My son you'll always be
And One -
That is us;
You and Me

With Time

"The pain will go away, with time"
"It won't be so bad, after awhile"
So say these friends of mine...
But they have never lost a child....

The pain will never go away
Yet it softens some, with time
My child is gone, it hurts to say
I'll never be "just fine"

Tho another year has come and gone
I hold your memories in my heart
They dance there, as if to song
From that I know I'll never part

As time goes by year after year
And the pain begins to soften
I know that it's alright to tear
And live with my memories, more often.....

Sweet Child

God made a sweet child
a child who never grew old
He made a smile of sunshine
He molded a heart of pure gold.
He made that child as close to an angel
as anyone ever could be
God made a Sweet Child
and He gave that dear child to me
Then God saw His wonderful creation
growing very tired and weak
so He wrapped the child in His loving arms
and said, "You my child I keep"
But now my Sweet Child is an angel
Free from hurt and pain
I'll love you forever, until we meet again
So many times I have missed you
So many times I have cried
If all my love could have saved you
Sweet Child you never would have died.

A Peek Into Heaven

Just one little peek into heaven,
Is all I'm asking for today.
I just want to know how she's doing,
And heaven seems so far away.

Is she playing on the clouds with angels?
Is she laughing and running today?
Does she miss me?
I guess only she knows.
Oh why does heaven seem so far away?

If you just let me look for a moment,
To catch a glimpse of her sweet smiling face,
I promise I won't try to take her,
I know, she's in a better place.

Just one little peek into heaven,
Is all I'm asking for today.
I just want to know how she's doing,
And heaven seems so far away...

Talking is Releasing

Go ahead and mention my child,
The one who died you know.
Don't worry about hurting me further,
The depth of my pain doesn't show.
Don't worry about making me cry.
I'm already crying inside.
Help me to heal by releasing
The tears that I try to hide.
I'm hurt when you just keep silent,
Pretending she didn't exist.
I'd rather you mention my child,
Knowing that she has been missed.
You asked me how I was doing.
I say "pretty good" or "fine."
But healing is something ongoing.
I feel it will take a lifetime.

Don't cry for Me Daddy

Don't cry for me Daddy,
I'm right here.
Although you can't see me
I see your tears.
I visit you often,
I go to work with you each day,
And when it's time for you
to close your eyes ,
On your pillow is where I lay.
I hold your hand &
stroke your hair,
And whisper in your ear.
If you're sad today Daddy,
Remember, I am here.
God took me home.
This we know is true.
But you'll always be My Daddy
Even though I'm not with you.
We will never be apart,
For everytime you think of me,
Please know I'm in your Heart..........

Moment of a Butterfly

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam
And for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world
But then it flies again
And though we wish it could have stayed...
We feel lucky to have seen it.

Life is like a butterfly,
Softly, softly'
One never knows why'
It touches your cheek, then
Says, "Goodbye."
Fragile and sweet, like
Blooming flowers
Life's loves and trials last only
the hours
They touch your heart, then
Say "goodbye"
Life is like a butterfly

My Dearest Child

My dearest child,
the day you went away my heart
was ripped from my chest,
a part of me went with you
and the world came crashing
down around me.

My dearest child,
although time goes on without you,
I think of you everyday
and miss you so much it hurts.

My dearest child,
I have a knot in my chest that is painful,
as if a knife has pierced my heart,
and I know that the pain of losing you
will be with me for all of my life.

My dearest child,
You are so precious, kind and gentle.
It is so hard to accept that
you had to go away.

My dearest child,
I cry for you every day
and long to look upon your face,
hear your voice, touch your cheek
and hold you in my arms one more time
like when you were a little boy
and make everything right.

My dearest child,
I wish that it was a dream,
and you were coming home,
But you will never come,
and a dream it will never be.

My dearest child,
I feel you with me sometimes
and that makes me happy for a while.
The sadness in my heart is so hard to bear
and crying is my only release.

My dearest child,
people tell me to remember that I have other
children, this I know I am not an idiot.
Everyone should know that your brothers
cannot fill the void left by you,
that space is yours,
and yours alone.

My dearest child,
only the people that have lost their child
can know what I am feeling
and the pain that I bear.
Those others must remember that my life changed,
and I changed the day that you went away.
I will never be the same again,
and I hope that people will accept this.

My dearest child,
this is my time to grieve for the
loss of my precious child.
This is my time to cry
and be sad for a while.
And one day I will be able
to think of you with a smile
and hopefully fewer tears.
And when I'm old and grey
and my time on earth is done,
I will come home to you
in the place that you have gone.

My dearest child,
remember that my love for you will never die,
and I will miss you for the rest of my life.
And I believe that you are an Angel looking
over us from up above beyond the
distant stars.

Broad Shoulders

Strong and tall, with shoulders so broad,
bearing all that doesn't come lightly.
Daddy lost his child today
and is sad and weary from the pain.

Being strong for all those around him,
giving a shoulder for them on to cry.
Smiling through a pain so strong,
finding it difficult and oh so long.

Wanting to weep, but showing a strength
that is constantly deep and ever solid.
Never knowing that a stray tear has escaped,
from the loving eyes full of pain.

Trusting that his family will be out of harm's way,
not able to save the life of his child.
He drowns in the heartache of memories past,
frowning with frustration of a life not saved.

Experiencing a pain that is so awfully deep,
it won't go away and he cannot sleep.
Waiting, waiting, waiting,
but not to return to his fold,
innocently left by his darling child.

Comforting the mother of his loved one true,
through the heartache, the pain and the searching.
She's yearning as much as he too,
shrouded by pain as deep as the ocean,
like waves crashing and pounding without an end.

Weeping in the arms of each other,
clutching tightly and grappling for fear of losing
all that is left of memories and goodness
found in the eyes of the child that was stolen by death.

Solace the feeling that lasts only a while,
Daddy is grateful for the time that he had.
Cannot accept his precious and kind child is gone,
praying and wishing for his return to his
Father that will love and miss him until the end of time.

Reeling from the darkness when times get bad,
Looking to the future living on a thread.
Feeling so helpless that he can't give the love of his life
the child that she lost to the universe of heaven.

Quietly grieving for the loss that he feels,
showing naught to others, while repressing the need
to shout and scream by pretending it's not real.
Frustration at the wild anger he keeps in check,
wanting it to stop to allow peace in his shattered heart.

Like a knife in his chest, so sharp like steel.
Hoping that it is a nightmare to terrible to be real.
Anger, hurt, pain, frustration, longing, sadness
Those are his feelings and thoughts everyday.

Wanting to touch his child who's so far away,
Never knowing when this will come to pass.
His arms are empty and light, wishing that he could
take flight to gather his child from deaths door.

Accepting forever the pain and heartache,
He will take to his grave.
Patiently waiting to meet again,
The child of his loins and rid himself of the pain.

Loving his family till the end of his days.
Not wanting to leave them, but part of him did the
day he said goodbye and scattered the ashes
of the loved one unique in his own special way.

Forever the Daddy to the others he'll be,
Not knowing when his time will be free,
To once again talk and reminisce with his
Child of the spirit life that he has lost.

Just for Today

Just for today I will try to live through the next 24 hours
and not expect to get over my child's death,
but instead learn to live with it, just one day at a time.

Just for today I will remember my child's life, not just her death,
and bask in the comfort of all those treasured days
and moments we shared.

Just for today I will forgive all the family and friends
who didn't help or comfort me the way I needed them to.
They truly did not know how.

Just for today I will smile no matter how much I hurt on the inside,
for maybe if I smile a little,
my heart will soften and I will begin to heal.

Just for today I will reach out to comfort a relative or friend of my child,
for they are hurting too,
and perhaps we can help each other.

Just for today I will free myself from my self-inflicted burden of guilt,
for deep in my heart I know if there was anything in this world
I could of done to save my child from death,
I would of done it.

Just for today I will honor my child's memory
by doing something with another child
because I know that would make my own child proud.

Just for today I will offer my hand in friendship
to another bereaved parent
for I do know how they feel.

Just for today when my heart feels like breaking,
I will stop and remember that grief is the price we pay for loving
and the only reason I hurt is because
I had the privilege of loving so much

Just for today I will not compare myself with others.
I am fortunate to be who I am
and have had my child for as long as I did.

Just for today I will allow myself to be happy,
for I know that I am not deserting her by living on.

Just for today I will accept that I did not die when my child did,
my life did go on,
and I am the only one who can make that life worthwhile once more.

Angel Mom

Orphans, widows and widowers.
A child taken away by death,
Has no name for a Mom.

Angel Mom is what she is,
A love for her child that
Knows no bounds.
A strength from an unknown source.
A pain so physical yet
She lives on.

Caring for and loving her
Child in this world,
Never knowing that
Her child was an Angel,
Here only for a while.

Walking in two worlds.
Her child's and hers.

Heartache felt of the loss,
Compassion for other Angel Mom's
Is what she has.

Angel Mom's meet and share,
Experiences and feelings of all
They bear,
Laughing and crying together,
Giving comfort and peace,
Of all those who feel
What is so real.

She flays as if drowning,
But surfaces again,
And knows she must go on,
Till they meet again.

Her child left home,
Never to return.
The loving arms are empty,
And longingly they burn.

Angel Mom's gather
In love and in friendship.
Developing bonds to last
A lifetime.

Looking forward to each
Time they are together,
Remembering their child
And giving tribute to them,
For the life that they shared.

Reliving the tragedy
Of their greatest loss.
Pleading for their child
To be whole again.
Waiting patiently for their
Return to the arms
Of the Mom that loves
Them forever.

Not seeing, hearing or touching
Is an anger that seems
To rear its ugly head,
And tears her heart into
Tiny shreds.

Eagerly waiting for the time that
She will go to her child's
Place of rest.
To be with the child
Who so suddenly left.

Forever be an Angel Mom,
Full of love, wisdom,
Strength and caring.
Loving all her children,
As much as she always has.
Never forgetting the one
That has gone,
And will never be back.

Taking comfort,
From knowing one day
They'll meet again,
In the place that her
Child has gone.
~author Angel Mom, Lesley Couzens ...

"Back To Top"


Do not tell me I am strong
You only see my days
Filled with details and work

You have never shared my nights
Long evenings empty
Except for memories and tears

My despair is sacrificed
to responsibility
You would be strong too
If you had no other choice
~author Kim Knapp ...

Not So Many Words to & from the Angels

"If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again." "Angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone."

"Those we have held in our arms for a little while we hold in our hearts forever" "There is no foot so small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world"
"Some say you are too painful to remember, I say you are too PRECIOUS to forget!" "A family is a circle of love, not broken by a loss, but made stronger by the memories. We remember."
"They gave so much to be so little, but Angels always do..." "Dear Lord, I would have loved to have held my babies on my lap and tell them about you, but since I didn't get the chance, would you please hold them on your lap and tell them about me?"
"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. " "Angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone."

An angel opened the book of life...
and wrote down your baby's birth.
Then she closed the book,
whispering "too beautiful for earth".
~author unknown ...

Then the child opened its eyes, and looked up into the angel's beautiful face, which beamed with happiness, and at the same moment they were in heaven, where joy and bliss reigned. The child received wings like the other angel, and they flew about together, hand in hand. ~Hans Christian Andersen~
