"We're in the present not the future. The only thing we can do now is listen to our hearts and pay for it later with the satisfaction of knowing we did something actually worthwhile." -Jasmine Garver


I will always love my Mom and Dad
I'll never forget what we always had
they used to call me splash
because with cups I would crash

The look on their face
can never replace
the memories we shared
or how much we cared

The feeling we had
could never be sad
the happiness was no lie
with all the money you couldn't buy

In a way we were just like each other
and it some how angered my beautiful Mother
but our memories can never disappear
even if the never reappear

I love them with all my heart
now you could never set us apart
they bought me my first easy bake oven
the things I made were filled with lots of lovin'

He tucked me into Mom's big bed
and kissed me gently on my head
that was the last time I saw his face
I was at a sad lone place
six years since Moms been gone
an eternity, a lightyear, a lifetime, man it's been long

I'm so sorry for you. Even though my mom and dad aren't dead, i feel like i've lost my dad. And that's what hurts, i feel your pain.
