Saturday's Sayings - Love is Eternal

Saturday's Sayings

Love is Eternal


Love never disappears for death is a non-event. 
I have merely retired to the room next door. 
You and I are the same; what we were for each other, we still are.
Speak to me as you always have. 
Do not use a different tone, do not be sad. 
Continue to laugh at what made us laugh. 
Smile and think of me. 
Life means what it has always meant. 
The link is not severed. 
Why should I be out of your soul if I am out of your sight? 
I will wait for you; I am not here, but just on the other side of this path. 
You see, all is well. 

~ St. Augustine

You know, I sat up night after night with my child, carried him a (sic) many miles. Took him for his shots and school was his favorite place where he met friends. I went to meetings, even faced up against the DCS and COG home for children to get him home from a camp ...[I ] put him in ...and to come home and, paid his ticket fines and cell phone bills, and took him shopping for clothes because a friend stole his clothes…bought another cell phone, because a friend stepped on it. 
It was more than being a mother, more than being his friend, and grandmother to his child…or children. It was part of my heart and soul. I brought him up in church and taught him well. We don't choose what our children do, we are just there for them. 
I gave up millions to BE there and then, He's Gone …and I am at loss of everything that I invested my life in. Want to scream his name, but he doesn't answer …so I pray that God gets a message to him, telling him, I loved him with all my heart and soul and mind and am sorry for not being there in the end.

I have not turned my back on you
So there is no need to cry.
I'm watching you from heaven
Just beyond the morning sky. 

I've seen you almost fall apart
When you could barely stand.
I asked an angel to comfort you
And watched her take your hand. 
She told me you are in more pain
Than I could ever be.
She wiped her eyes and swallowed hard
Then gave your hand to me. 
Although you may not feel my touch
Or see me by your side.
I've whispered that I love you
While I wiped each tear you cried. 

So please try not to ache for me
We'll meet again one day.
Beyond the dark and stormy sky
A rainbow lights the way.

Look for me in Rainbows

Time for me to go now, I won't say goodbye; 
Look for me in rainbows, way up in the sky. 
In the morning sunrise when all the world is new, 
Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you. 

Time for me to leave you, I won't say goodbye; 
Look for me in rainbows, high up in the sky. 
In the evening sunset, when all the world is through, 
Just look for me and love me, and I'll be close to you. 

It won't be forever, the day will come and then 
My loving arms will hold you, when we meet again. 
Time for us to part now, we won't say goodbye; 
Look for me in rainbows, shining in the sky. 

Every waking moment, and all your whole life through 
Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you. 
Just wish me to be near you, 
And I'll be there with you.

When all was quiet 
And we were sad 
Thinking of the 
Times we'd had 

A butterfly 
Then came to us 
Flew around 
Without a rush 

Showed us how 
He'd been set free 
Drifting off 
Where we can't see 

Helped us know 
He's on his way 
We'll treasure this 
Each passing day.
