Valentine to Heaven


This Valentine is not of the ordinary kind,
Its still filled with love...and blessings inside;
But mine has to be sent on the wings of love...
You see its destination is the Heavens above.

Its not being sent to my parents so dear,
For they are still with me each day of the year;
Its being sent to my child...who left earth so soon, Who's now in the Heavens with the stars and the moon.


The message is the same as your valentine,
"I love you...my sweet precious child of mine;
My love is still deeper than the ocean is blue,
And its sent with hugs and kisses...from me to you."

"I know you are with me each and every day,
You listen as I talk to you...and hear what I say;
For that is one thing that disease cannot do...
...you'll always be apart of me...and me a part of you."


"I know God did not give you the awful disease,
Thank Him for His comfort He gives me...would you please? I dont know what I would do without His undying love...Sent to bereaved parents from the Heavens above."

"I know you are in the best of care,
But it's so hard for us left on earth to bear;
Could you put in a request from us left behind...
For God to send the knowledge..so a cure we can find."


"So that no other family has to go through this pain, Our lives without you will never be the same;When I get lonely I will look to the sky at night...And see you shining down your big bright light."

"Happy Valentines day sunshine...I miss you so much, I know you know how many lives you have touched;You'll always be mine...I love you with all my heart,I know we be together again...and then we'll never part."

A Dozen Roses


If I had a dozen roses I know just what I’d do

I’d give each one a name that reminded me of you

The first rose I’d name sunshine cause you brighten everyday The second would be beauty the kind that never goes away 


The third one would be priceless like those hugs you gave to me I’d name the fourth rose silly oh how funny you could be Rose five of course is patience something you have helped me find The sixth rose I’d call memories the precious gift you left behind 


The seventh and the eight rose would for sure be faith and grace ,Nine would be unique because no one can take your place The tenth rose well that’s easy I’d simply name it love

Eleven I’d call angel I know you’re watching from above


I’d think about that twelfth rose and I'd really take my time,After all these roses are for you my Valentine

I’m sending them to heaven in every color that I know'So number twelve I’ll name forever that’s how long I’ll love you so

A Valentine Sent To Heaven


Angels come swiftly, hurry to our side

Carry our hearts back with you, to our children in heaven now reside.

Carry them gently, handle them with care

And take them to their sides, and gently lay them there.

Whisper to them of our love, and our longing hearts

All our lonely aching while we are apart.

Hold them gently to you, and let them see our love

Let them see this, our valentine to them above.

Reassure them of our love, that it is still the same

And gently hold us when we cry, when we hear them whisper our names.

Let this exchange of love be our valentine

And whisper to them that our love will stand the test of time.

Show them the memories are safely held inside

And with us they will always abide.

Let them see this day, a day filled with our love

As we shed our tears, and whisper their names, to our Valentines above.

about HEART


Each of us has two hearts. The one that beats in our chest and sustains life. We know about that one. And the one that is described by philosophers as the residence of our spirit and our consciousness. Most of us probably didn't get to know that one until our loss. Remember the fists that sat in the middle of your chest for the first several months? And you went to the doctor, he did an EKG, and said, "Your heart is just fine, no problems." The heart that was laid open by this event can't be seen

on an x-ray or measured by any EKG. And once opened. it can't be sewn up. We're stuck with it. AND BETTER OFF WITH IT! The compassion lesson is learned when you can control your tears for your own child, but can't control your tears for another's child. And through this terrible experience, we have all learned that compassion and love, both seated in heart #2, are the only important things in life. The price has been terrible, but we have learned what REALLY matters, and just as importantly, what DOESNT!

THE ROSE by Bette Midler


Some say love it is a river

That drowns the tender reed

Some say love it is a razer

That leaves your soul to bleed


Some say love it is a hunger

An endless aching need

I say love it is a flower

And you it's only seed


It's the heart afraid of breaking

That never learns to dance

It's the dream afraid of waking

That never takes the chance

It's the one who won't be taken

Who can not seem to give

And the soul afraid of dying

That never learns to live


When the night has been too lonely

And the road has been too long

And you think that love is only

For the lucky and the strong

Just remember in the winter

Far beneath the bitter snow

Lies the seed

That with the sun's love in the spring

Becomes the rose


Behold! I am with you and will keep you wherever you go - genesis 28:15

The Lord has promised to prepare
A place in heaven above—
A home where we will always be
With Him and those we love.  —Sper

Because Christ lives, death is not tragedy but triumph.
