Oh how I wish you were still alive

Oh how I wish you were still alive

Today is yours and your niece’s Birthdays
You would be turning 35
Oh how I wish you were still alive.

An extra candle we place upon her cake
And we sing for you a special song
Not having you here seems so wrong

Such a terrible thing that you left so soon
Each year we add another balloon
With messages written for you, all them we then release
Standing motionless as we watch the last one float off in the breeze.
Hoping that at least one in Heaven will arrive
Oh how I wish you were still alive

So hard for those you left behind family, friends and a little minni-me
She you ought to see
Like two peas in a pod
Another just like you - whats the odds

And a son so young without a mommy or memories to be had
it is so very sad
But what a little man he has became
I will be sure he knows you in all your glory and fame.
and we all will make sure they both continue to thrive
Oh how I wish you were still alive

Every Birthday and Holiday that comes and goes
My sadness I try not to show,
 I look around and realize you are gone
I find myself becoming withdrawn
To die is easy but to be left behind
 Is the worst thing for mankind

You will always be my Amy Sue
I honor you with a tattoo
But the ache in my heart and the pain in my sole
Has taken away my glow
A pain so deep 
It keeps me awake, unable to sleep
It is easy to die harder to survive
Oh how I wish you guys were still alive

Always in my heart, always on my mind; never be forgotten.
Give your dad a hug from me.
