GOOD-BYE MY LOVE
The date of August tenth is
Embedded in my heart.
It's the day my entire world
Completely fell apart.
My 23 year old daughter
Was taken away.
And that date became
Her final Rest day.
Taken so young,
Just doesn't seem right.
Everything changed on
That fateful night.
Each day I keep asking
God, why, why why?
Couldn't you have let
Me at least say good-bye.
She's now an angel
Watching from above.
But, how I wish she were here
So I could give her love.
Not enough time to
Do all she could.
Taken away before she
Could do the things she should.
Good-bye my angel
I love you so much,
I long so much for
Just one more touch.

RAIN KEEPS FALLING FROM THE SKIES AS IF IT WERE MY TEARS. EACH RAINDROP PIERCES MY HEART WITH THE BLADE OF MANY SPEARS. DOES THE RAIN REFLECT YOU’RE NOT AT PEACE, OR MAYBE STILL IN PAIN? I WANT TO BELIEVE THAT’S NOT THE CASE AND THAT IT REALLY JUST IS RAIN. BUT, MY HEAD WILL TELL ME ONE THING WHILE MY HEART WILL SPEAK ANOTHER. MAYBE THAT’S THE REASON WHY THEY SAY THE WORST GRIEF IS FOR A MOTHER. A MOTHER’S LOVE IS STRONG AND PURE THAT HOW WE’LL MANAGE WITHOUT YOU LEAVES US SHATTERED AND SO UNSURE. SO, PLEASE SEND ME A SIGN TO LET ME KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOW AT PEACE. AND MAYBE 50 YEARS FROM NOW MY PAIN WILL THEN DECREASE.
I am to where Death resembles Heaven,
I can no longer take anymore.
Open the gates and let me in,
then seal and lock the door.
I've lost the will to carry on,
my life is at it's end
My spirit has been deeply crushed
and no longer able to mend.
I've lived my life the best I could,
and tried to do what's right.
But, this world is such an angry place,
where all they do is fight.
So, open the gates and let me in,
So I can stop the pain,
Lay me down to rest in peace
and drown me in your rain.
Cassandra, I miss you so very much. I am trying to stay strong for OUR girls.
THIS IS A POEM WRITTEN RIGHT AFTER CASSANDRA LEFT MY WORLD.
I JUST CAN'T TAKE
ANYMORE OF THIS PAIN.
IT'S SUCKED IN SO DEEP
IT'S DOWN TO MY VEIN.
RIPPING AND PULLING
AND STRETCHED OUT SO TIGHT,
HOPING AND PRAYING SOMEONE
TURNS OUT THE LIGHT.
I'M TIRED OF LIVING
IN A WORLD FILLED WITH SORROW.
I DON'T WANT TO EVEN LIVE TO SEE
LET ME LAY DOWN
AND REST IN PEACE,
WHEN ALL THE PAIN
AND HURTING WILL FINALLY CEASE.
THE EFFECTS GRIEF HAS ON A MOTHER
He's pulling me down into his space,
Out of here, where I feel out of place.
I want this life I am living in now,
To be completely painless somehow.
The devil has now reached into my soul,
He's offered the escape from this hellhole.
He's shown me the life of no more pain,
A life of no longer feeling insane.
People say I'm out of my mind,
To consider leaving this world behind.
But I've taken all of this life I can take,
I just want to lay down, never to wake.
So let me live with my own choices,
You can open your door as my door closes.
Let the devil do what he wants with my soul,
The love it knew has already been stole.
FALLING SO FAR DOWN
THERE IS NO END IN SIGHT.
I’M ALL ALONE
TO DREAD ANOTHER NIGHT.
THE TEARS ARE FALLING
AS MY HEART LIES DYING.
ALL ALONE IN A WORLD
WHERE SO MANY KEEP LYING.
MY HEART IS BREAKING
THE LOVE IS LEAKING.
IT’S DRAINING ME DRY
NO MORE TEARS TO CRY.
IS DEATH THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE IT END,
OR DO YOU HAVE A THOUGHT TO RECOMMEND?
I’VE LOST THE ABILITY TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE,
I NEED ANSWERS FROM ANOTHER VOICE.
PLEASE STOP AND SIGN MY GUESTBOOK AND LET MY MOM KNOW YOU STOPPED BY. THANK YOU
