If....you had been healthy

As were all your peers,

We might have kept you with us

For many, many years.

If....the many doctors seen

Would have found a cure,

You would still be with us

Dearly loved by all, for sure.

If....God would have let me

I'd gladly gone in place of you,

For since you went to Heaven

I feel my life is through.

If....I could push back the hands of time

And live it all again,

I'd love you even more

Than I did back then!

This beautiful gift is from my PRECIOUS JULI...my LIFELINE!

I received this award on January 9, 2000

This is my little Missy wearing Daddy's hat! She could always be seen wearing his hat or shoes!

(The hat on backwards or shoes on the wrong feet)



If a picture paints a thousand words, then why can't I paint you? The words will never show the you I've come to know. If a face could launch a thousand ships, then where am I to go? There's no one home but you, you're all that's left me, too. And when my love for life is running dry You come and pour yourself on me. Then one by one the stars would all go out. Then you and I would simply fly away.


This midi is "IF"
