Merry Christmas From Heaven

I still hear the songs
I still see the lights
I still feel your love
on cold wintery nights

I still share your hopes
and all of your cares
I'll even remind you
to please say your prayers

I just want to tell you
you still make me proud
You stand head and shoulders
above all the crowd

Keep trying each moment
to stay in His grace
I came here before you
to help set your place

You don't have to be
perfect all of the time
He forgives you the slip
If you continue the climb

To my family and friends
please be thankful today
I'm still close beside you
In a new special way

I love you all dearly
now don't shed a tear
Cause I'm spending my
Christmas with Jesus this year

Lynne, I missed you this Christmas so much. I missed going into your room and seeing you already awake waiting to open presents. I missed your smile and laughter as you opened your knew pajamas or dress or toys. I missed going in and watching your knew movie that you got for Christmas that you wouldn't ever watch after that. I missed your leg shaking with excitement as you saw your knew presents. I missed the hi and the smile Christmas morning as we got you ready in your wheelchair to look at your stocking. I missed it all this year...
I miss the way the house felt when you were around, more smiles and not so many tears. A part of me isn't there anymore now that you're gone...sometimes my heart just hurts because I feel empty without you in my life. It hurts to go into your room and you aren't there...Tanea misses having you there too. The house feels so empty and mom hardly smiles were the one that could always bring a smile to her face.
I miss you more then words can express. My heart hurts when I think of the times that you'll watch over in Heaven so we can one day reminisce. I'm grateful for the memories that we've had that I will always remember you by. I know you are whole now and free to dance and sing and run like you couldn't do on earth. I can't wait until the day when I can dance with you. Save me a place next to you ok? I will always love you sis!
