"These are my footprints,
so perfect and so small.
These tiny footprints
never touched the ground at all.
Not one tiny footprint,
for now I have wings.
These tiny footprints were meant
for other things.
You will hear my tiny footprints,
in the patter of the rain.
Gentle drops like angel's tears,
of joy and not from pain.
You will see my tiny footprints,
in each butterflies' lazy dance.
I'll let you know I'm with you,
if you just give me the chance.
You will see my tiny footprints,
in the rustle of the leaves.
I will whisper names into the wind,
and call each one that grieves.
Most of all, these tiny footprints,
are found on Mummy and Daddy's hearts.
'Cause even though I'm gone now,
We'll never truly part."

If tears could build a stairway
and thoughts a memory lane
I'd walk right up to heaven
and bring you home again
No Farewell words were spoken
No time to say good-bye
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knows why.

My heart's still active in sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one can ever know.
But now I know you want us
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store.

Since you'll never be forgotten
I pledge to you today
A hallowed place within my heart
Is where you'll always stay.

God knows why, with chilling touch,
Death gathers those we love so much,
And what now seems so strange and dim,
Will all be clear, when we meet Him.
I Knew you for a Moment

Snowflake Kisses

Shared by Deborah Lee Reynolds on December 17, 2011

Snowflake are kisses from angels each one filled with love sent from our precious angels watching from above, every snowflake is perfect and different from the rest reminding us that to our angels they think we are the best, some are tiny snowflakes and some so big and bright reminding us all angels big and small are our guiding light, and as quickly as they have fallen they some fade away and just like our angels we wish they could have stayed, so when u see the snowfall and look outside this Christmas day know there kisses from our angels and there never far away, all are special angels will celebrate this year smiling down from heaven and join in our Christmas cheer, no angel ever will be forgotten no snowflake ever the same there always watching from above playing angel games, this year I need no angel upon my Christmas tree for my angel shines from heaven and means so much to me, as Christmas is upon us we remember all angels dear and we know on Christmas day heaven will also be full of festive cheer

Our angel babies they fly so high
Way up higher than the clouds in the sky
using clouds as trampolines and stars as balls
is it any wonder they forget to return calls
they fly round the milky way in their little toy cars
trying their hardest to dodge all those stars
we love our sweet angels but they're having so much fun
playing cops and robbers and their on the run
I’d love to hire an aeroplane even for one day
because then I could join our angels it would be my turn to play

Shared by Deborah Lee Reynolds on December 17, 2011

My angel you see he flies so high,
he flies so high right there in the sky,
He walks right beside me not quite hand in hand,
Although it is not how I would have planned,
I tell him, My angel I love you
More than you'll ever know
I feel so sad your not here
but you went where you need to go
just remember we're here and waiting for you
but never forget we long to be there too x x

Shared by Deborah Lee Reynolds on December 17, 2011

Good morning my sweet angel,
It's your mummy here,
I just wanted to say 'I love you so',
As I cannot pull you near,
We long to give you cuddles,
And tuck you in at night,
But the clouds are quite far away,
It would be one hell of a flight,
So until my angel I have wings like yours,
Good morning my angel until I write you tonight.

Shared by Deborah Lee Reynolds on December 17, 2011

My perfect angel you shine so bright,
But how I wish with all my might,
My perfect angel-you should be here with me,
Or bouncing on your daddy's knee,
My perfect angel-why did you have to go?,
I guess we may never know,
My perfect angel-I want you to take this,
From mummy and daddy lots of cuddles and a big kiss

Shared by Deborah Lee Reynolds on December 17, 2011

sleep tight o perfect angel,

your loved so very dear,

until we meet you once again,

we'll send our kisses for you to hold near x x x

I look up at the sky at night
just to see my son
for he's a shining star you know
the brightest in the sky
but our star he turned into an angel
but a very special kind
because my angel he looks after me
he make me feel so warm
so even on the coldest day
when my mood is bleak and dark
a single twinkling shining star
needs only to let out a spark
to feel his unique warmth
so look up into the sky tonight
and see YOUR special star
and remember that it's twinkling
says I love you so much more.

Shared by Deborah Lee Reynolds on December 17, 2011

You sit so high,
Right there in the sky,
While we all just sit here and wonder why,
You had to fly so far away,
We would have much preferred for you to stay,
My angel you play up in the stars,
instead of down here with us and your cars,
I long to tuck you in at night,
But for now it seems you have to take flight,
So goodnight my angel in my dreams you will be,
Big kisses to you from daddy and me.

for my perfect bumblebee angel x x x x x

My tiny angel you fly so high,
That very thought well it makes me cry,
I know it's selfish but I want you here,
I've this longing inside me to hold you near,
I love you so dearly this much you know,
And I’ll never understand why you had to go,
Be near me my angel as I struggle to get through,
So each day when I wake it wont seem quite as blue

Shared by Deborah Lee Reynolds on December 17, 2011

My sweet shining angel,
I write you every night,
If I could have a genies lantern,
I'd rub with all my might,
I'd wish you right back home again,
where you ought to be,
I'd wish our home all cosy and warm,
so that you'd never leave,
but lastly if that could not be so I’d wish so very hard,
I'd wish that I had wings like yours so that we'd never part

Shared by Deborah Lee Reynolds on December 17, 2011

Our beautiful shining shooting star,
Oh how we wonder how you are,
Each tiny toe could make us weep,
Only a memory we could keep,
Our angel baby - who could have known?
That very early morning we'd never felt so alone,
But everyone tells us your special you see,
Your to be a messenger - not here with me,
So our sweet angel know this much is true,
We have so very much love for you,
While our arms are empty,
Our hearts are so full,
For our child sits upon his cloud,
Singing songs so sweet and pure,
We knew you'd be special,
Of that we were sure,
To us your our diamond - kept in that safe in the sky,
You never need to wonder or ask the question why,
Because - although we may be far apart,
You will forever remain in our hearts

Shared by Deborah Lee Reynolds on December 17, 2011

You fly so high,
Yet feel so near,
Let me make one thing perfectly clear,
If I could tie my love to the brightest star,
Just to pull you near,
I'd never want to let it go,
Of that we can be sure,
You are our Brightest Shooting star,
They tell me you are never far,
If only you knew how much we love you,
Our lives wouldn't seem so blue,
For that you can be sure for it is true,
we really, really, really do have so very much love for you.

For all our beautiful angels x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x

I never got to see your smile
nor the twinkle in your eye
my beautiful sweet bumblebee
you didn’t even cry
I sometimes wish I had gone, not you
but I guess it was just your time
my shining light, my superstar
when people ask how I am I’ll tell them I’m just fine
because I have my angel who flies so high
My beautiful diamond in the sky
you shine so bright for you know this is true
I could never deny the love I have for you

Shared by Deborah Lee Reynolds on December 17, 2011

God took our precious angel,
The reason is yet unclear,
It hurts us just knowing ,
He cannot be here.

I know our angel hears us,
When we tell him I 'love you so,
I still don't think I'll ever understand
Just why you had to go

So for now I guess we'll say,
Sleep tight my bumblebee,
You've heard it but a hundred times,
You mean the world to me.

Shared by Deborah Lee Reynolds on December 17, 2011

My beautiful shining angel
Oh how I love you so
The thought that often pains me
Is I'll never see you grow

I look at other mummies
As they hug and kiss their babes
And I cling onto your picture
Hoping that it never fades

Words just cannot express to you
How I long to hold you near
But for now at least I must
Just say you are beautiful my dear

For my bumblebee x x x

He lost his baby too!!

Shared by Deborah Lee Reynolds on December 17, 2011

It must be very difficult
To be a man in grief,
Since "men don't cry"
and "men are strong".
No tears can bring relief.

It must be very difficult
To stand up to the test
And field the calls and visitors
So she can get some rest.
They always ask if she's alright
And what she's going through.
But seldom take his hand and ask
"My friend, but how are you?"

He hears her crying in the night
And thinks his heart will break.
He dries her tears and comforts her,
But "stays strong" for her sake.

It must be very difficult
To start each day anew
And try to be so very brave-

He lost his baby too

 

 

Tiny Angel Poem

Shared by Deborah Lee Reynolds on December 17, 2011

Tiny Angel rest your wings
Sit with me a while.
How I long to hold your hand,
And see your tender smile.

Tiny Angel, look at me,
I want this image clear
That I will forget your face
Is my biggest fear.

Tiny Angel can you tell me,
Why you have gone away?
You weren't here for very long
Why is it, you couldn't stay?

Tiny Angel shook his head,
"These things I do not know
But I do know that you love me,
And that I love you so".
