"All my life I kept wishing
To grow older
So I could finally move out
And do my own thing.
But now I wish I could
Just turn back time
To be a child and
Hug my mum again."

"Now I know why you always
Asked me to be strong.........
Because you knew that one day
I would need the strength
To bear your loss."

"I found a picture of you
One that I had not seen in a while
I held it gently in my hands
Lost for a moment in your smile

I found a card from you
Written in your own special way
I held it gently in my hands
Lost for a moment in that day

Memories, sweet gifts from you
To allow my heart a breath
To let me be lost for a moment
To remember life not just death.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"

"On The Anniversary Of The Day You Went Away.
Today's the anniversary
Of the day I lost you,
And for a time it felt as though,
My life had ended too.

But loss has taught me many things,
And now I face each day,
With hope and happy memories
To help me on my way.

And though I'm full of sadness
That you're no longer here,
Your influence still guides me
And I still feel you near.

What we shared will never die
It lives within my heart,
Bringing strength and comfort
While we are apart.

xxxxx Love Never Dies xxxxx"

"'Remembering our loving Mum on Mother's day'

The world has never been the same
without your smiling face
your absence makes it seem
a very different place,

but wouldn't it be wonderful
if heaven had a phone
a direct line that reached right up
into the great unknown

for just to hear your voice again
would be a dream come true
we'd chat and laugh for hours
in the way we used to do

and nothing would be nicer
than to have the chance to say
love you lots, and miss you
have a lovely Mother's Day.x"

"Remembering a Special Mum at Christmas.

Some say that those we've loved and lost
          have not just gone away
but they walk, unseen, unheard
          beside us every day.
I know it's true, because your love
           still casts a gentle glow
and it will always guide me, Mum
           wherever I may go
and if I could have just one wish
           this Christmas, it would be
to see your smiling face
           because you meant the world to me.
but precious memories of you
           will always keep you near
still loved, missed and remembered
            with the passing of each year.
                             xxxx"

"'Going Back'  -  Phil Collins.
I think I'm goin' back
To the things I learned so well in my youth
I think I'm returning to
Those days when I was young enough to know the truth

Now there are no games to only pass the time
No more electric trains, no more trees to climb
But thinking young and growing older is no sin
And I can play the game of life to win

I can recall a time
When I wasn't ashamed to reach out to a friend
Now, I think I've got
A lot more than just my toys to lend

Now there's more to do than watch my sailboat glide
But every day can be a magic carpet ride
A little bit of courage is all we lack
So catch me if you can, I'm goin' back

Now there's more to do than watch my sailboat glide
But every day can be a magic carpet ride
A little bit of courage is all we lack
So catch me if you can, I'm goin' back"

"Christine's Poem.

You can shed tears that mum is gone
or you can smile because she has lived.

You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back
or you can open your eyes and see all she has left.

Your heart can be empty because you can't see her
or you can be full of the love you shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember her and only that she's gone
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.

You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back

or you can do what she would want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on."

"Our lives go on without you
But nothing is the same
We have to hide our heartache
When someone speaks your name
Sad are the hearts that love you
Silent are the tears that fall
Living without you is the hardest part of all
You did so many things for us
Your heart was so kind and true
And when we needed someone
We could always count on you
The special years will not return
When we are all together
But with the love in our hearts
You walk with us forever"

"Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room
I am I and you are you
Whatever we were to each other
That we are still
Call me by my old familiar name
Speak to me in the easy way you always used

Laugh as we always laughed
At the little jokes we always enjoyed together
Smile,think of me,pray for me

Why should I be out of mind
Because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you for an interval
Somewhere very near
Just around the corner
All is well

Nana, you will be missed and thought of everyday. We love you so very much. Never forget you Zowie & Courtney xxx"

"Like the bright shining summer sun,
Your smile, it beams with love,
I have that memory in my mind,
And now I look in the clouds above

My friend forever in my heart,
You'll always hold that special place,
So delicate yet so very strong,
I will never forget your pretty face

Fun and laughter we shared together,
From a child to the woman I am today,
Every game we played and time that we spent,
Those memories will always stay

Your friends at scrabble will be missing you,
I know you loved to play,
They will all be thinking of you now I know,
And think of you each day

This is not goodbye, but goodnight,
And a kiss to you on the chair you sat,
You will always be a part of me,
I love you, my Nanny Pat xxxx
Love Nicole xxxx"

"How can you describe a star, mere words do not suffice, how can I, in just one poem,  do justice to your life?
Playing tiddly winks when I was young, the laughter started then, and it never stopped with you around, my Nanny Pat, my friend.

I loved all your funny sayings, they would have filled a book and how you could never find your handbag and you'd march around to look.

I loved your crazy laughter and the fact I share it too, I'm proud you passed it down to me because when I laugh, I hear you.

There is so much to thank you for, not least of all my Mum and I know you are so very proud of the woman she's become.

Thank you for your kindess and all the ways you cared. And the way you lived life to the full and the special times we shared.

Keep an eye on us up there, think of me a while, I'll take you with me in my heart and I'll think of you and smile.

How can I describe a star? Words do not suffice. But you were the very brightest star and you shone for all your life....

Love you always and forever Nanny Pat love Hannah xxxxxxxxxxx"

"To all family and friends of Dear Pat, Mum, Nan, Nanny, Grandma.
Who was taken from us so suddenly, and will be in our thoughts and hearts forever.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you waken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Love and miss you, Mum.xxxxxxxxxxTracey and Jon xxxxxxxxxxx."

"The only treasure in the life we live
Is in the measure of the love we give
All that matters in the end will be
The love in you and the love in me
Love is the treasure
