BLUE
 
Blue is the colour of certain people's eyes
It is like water on a tropical island.
Blue is the colour in the rainbow
Blues is the colour of a blue jay.
Is also the colour you go when you're cold or unconcious.
It's like a song or sad feeling when you got the blues.
Blue is the sky on a scorching hot day in summer
Blue is the colour of some jeans.
Blue is a popular colour
Blue is the colour of paint
It can also be the colour of a marker
or the colour of a pen.
Blue is my favorite colour
It is also the colour of some gum.
This is why I like blue.
 
 

I BELIEVE
 sung by Diamond Rio
Skip Ewing/Donny Kees

Every now and then soft as breath upon my skin
I feel you come back again
And it's like you haven't been gone a moment from my side
Like the tears were never cried
Like the hands of time are holding you and me
And with all my heart I'm sure we're closer than we ever were
I don't have to hear or see; I've got all the proof I need
There are more than angels watching over me
I believe, I believe

Chorus
That when you die your life goes on
It doesn't end here when you're gone
Every soul is filled with light
It never ends and if I'm right
Our love can even reach across eternity
I believe, I believe

Forever, you're a part of me
Forever, in the heart of me
And I'll hold you even longer if I can
The people who don't see the most
Say that I believe in ghosts
And if that makes me crazy, then I am
'Cause I believe

There are more than angels watching over me
I believe, I believe

WAVES
 
The waves are rippling and constantly moving.
Sometimes it's frozen and smoother than a table.
On windy days the waves are fierce and can capsize a boat.

 
 
 
 
ORCAS
 
Blowing gently through their blow holes
Gracefully moving through the water
Leaping out of the peaceful ocean.
Manting and having osprey
Enjoy it while you can.
They won't be here for much longer.

Don't Mourn For Me

Mother, please don't mourn for me;
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side, each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.
My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.

My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.
I'll never wander out of your sight--
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach--
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.
I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around,
And the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond--
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.
I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring;
the first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.
When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.
I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on baby's face.
Just look for me, Mommy,
I'm everyplace!

The Ache We Hold Inside

When these children we loved are taken,
And the years pass slowly by,
You feel the grieving is over.
But the ache is still inside.

This life of ours must continue
And the tears we must learn to hide,
But you know it will never leave you,
This ache we feel inside.

Their siblings go on with their future,
And you know this is how it should be.
You share in their joys and sorrows,
But that ache won't let you free,
Where they rest, you visit less often,
And their voices are not as clear,
And our zest for life is returning,
But the ache is always near,

Our friends and families tell us,
How well we handled our grief,
If they only knew deep within us,
From this ache there is no relief,
When alone we talk to them often,
For we know they are still by our side,
And the warmth of our memories comfort,
But the ache will always abide,

As we continue this earthly voyage,
And the calm and the storms pass by,
We will cherish our precious memories,
And this ache we hold inside.

FORGOTTEN? - NEVER!

Friends may think we have forgotten
When at times they see us smile.
Little do they know the heartaches
That our smiles hide all the while.

Beautiful memories are wonderful things.
That last till the longest day.
They never wear out.
They never get lost and
can never be given away.

To some you may forgotten.
To others apart of the past.
But to those who loved
and lost you...
Your memory will always last.

A DAY, A WEEK, A LIFETIME

When I wake up in the morning
I ask myself
How will I get through this day
Without You

As I dress and prepare to start my day
I wonder
How will I go on
Without You

As the day slowly slips away
I remember how you made me laugh
And I smile
Without You

At the end of the day
As I prepare to close my eyes
I know in my HEART
I couldn't have gotten through the day
WITHOUT YOU
