My Angel Winnie....
If roses grow in Heaven,
Lord please pick a bunch for me,
Place them in my daughters arms
And tell her they're from me.
Tell her that I love her and miss her,
And when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek
And hold her for awhile.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it everyday,
But there's an ache within my heart
That will never go away.
Jay and Tricey... Wow, she loves her big brother... Best Friends Forever...

To My Angel Winnie, Love Momma
Go ahead and mention my child,
The one that died you know.
Don't worry about hurting me further.
The depth of my pain doesn't show.
Don't worry about making me cry
I'm already crying inside.
Help me to heal by releasing
The tears that I try to hide.
I'm hurt when you just keep silent,
Pretending she didn't exist.
I'd rather you mention my child,
Knowing that she has been missed.
You ask me how I am doing.
I say "pretty good" or "fine".
But healing is something ongoing
I feel it will take a lifetime.
Please don’t tell me you know how I feel,
Unless you have lost your child too,
Please don’t tell me my broken heart will heal,
Because that is just not true,
Please don’t tell me my daughter is in a better place,
Though it is true, I want her here with me,
Don’t tell me someday I’ll hear her voice, see her face,
Beyond today I cannot see,
Don’t tell me it is time to move on,
Because I cannot,
Don’t tell me to face the fact she is gone,
Because denial is something I can’t stop,
Don’t tell me to be thankful for the time I had,
Because I wanted more,
Don’t tell me when I am my old self you will be glad,
I’ll never be as I was before,
What you can tell me is you will be here for me,
That you will listen when I talk of my child,
You can share with me my precious memories,
You can even cry with me for a while,
And please don’t hesitate to say her name,
Because it is something I long to hear everyday,
Friend please realize that I can never be the same,
But if you stand by me, you may like the new person I become someday.

As we traveled along life’s journeyWith always a thought for the otherBe it the care and concern of a sisterOr the pride and strength of a brotherWe know that there’ll always be a bondThat is different from any otherBecause we’ve been blessed as a two-someSharing nine months within our MotherIt’s the little things that are differentThat feeling of being halfThat only turns to whole againWhen we’d hear each others’ laughThat knowing look from the otherWhen remembering a space from the pastAnd the fun we’d had in that eraReminiscing who played in the castSo then when our lives are separatedWhen you’re young and at your bestWith no understanding you leave meAnd my soul is put to the testFor how do I become one againWhile you’re not at my sideA piece of me has been takenAn emptiness I cannot hideFor now there’s no other half of meI cannot accept this and grinFor God not only took away my partnerHe took away my "TWIN"
UhO- Tricey is about to start it !!!
