In Loving Memory of my Beautiful Daughter

Lindsay and Lexi her Labradoodle
A year ago today God took you away,
To a home in heaven to forever stay.
The pain and loss of you is much to bear,
even after a year it’s always there.

When I think of the past and memories for awhile,
What I think of most is your beautiful smile.
Etched in my memory and in my heart,
When you went to heaven my world fell apart.

There is no greater sorrow,
Than to have you here today and gone tomorrow.
This is not the way it is supposed to be,
I wish you could come and trade places with me.

Why did this happen to you I will never know,
I search for an answer why you had to go.
A senseless tragedy with no respect for your life,
Which has caused me so much pain, tears and strife.

I remember you, my pride and joy every day,
But the pain and broken heart will never go away.
My heart is in many pieces as I try to carry on,
there is no normal life now that you are gone.

Although my heart is broken I know your in God’s care,
No one can ever hurt you again now that you are there.
In heaven with Mandi and Lexi waiting for the day,
For all your friends & family to join you and forever stay.

I asked God to bless me with faith and hope,
Strength and courage and to help me cope.
With the loss of you, so loved and so dear,
and all the things I missed so much this year!
 Love Mom
