You meant so much to all of us.
You were so special and that's no lie.
You brightened up the darkest and cloudiest sky.
Not a second passes when your not on our minds.
Your love, we'll never forget.
The hurt will ease in time.
The fun you shared
The way you listened, we knew you cared.
The joy you brought
All of your love and affection, is what we got.
Your smile alone warmed our hearts.
You will always be so much a part....
a part of me, a part of us, a part of this family....
you will always be in our hearts.
Although someone special passes on
It does not mean they are gone
Though you are no longer with us
your memory will live on.
However, I still miss you so much
I wish I could feel your touch.
I wish I could tell you one last time
How much I cared and enjoyed the time we shared
You taught us how to love
You taught how to live
But most of all you taught us how to give.
What I would do for just one last chance
One more moment with you
Just one more glance.
Have you here, close, well and near.
Somewhere in my dreams tonight,
i'll see you standing there.
I'll reach out to you asking "why?"
And you'll look at me with a smile and say,
"Life isn't fair,just do all you can, keep you head up
and be the strongest and best person that you can be
and know i'll always be there for you whenever you need me."
And i'll make the promise back saying,
"as long as there's a heart in me,
you'll always be a part of me."
So many tears I have seen and cried
they have all poured out like rain,
but it is comforting to know that you are no longer in pain.
And have the hope of everlasting life to gain.
Although we miss you so much nothing will change
Because we will never forget you,
and always and forever love you just the same.
Our dear, precious, loving, AUNT JEAN HAYNES.
