Dearly Beloved Friend:
How are you? I just had to send you this letter
to tell you how much
I love you and care for you.
I saw you yesterday as you were walk-
ing with your friends.
I waited all day, hoping you would walk
and talk with me also.
As evening drew near, I gave you a sunset to
close your day, and a cool breeze to rest you. Then I waited, but you never came.
And yes, it hurt me, but I still love you
because I am your friend.
I saw you fall asleep last night,
and I longed to touch your brow, so
I spilled moonlight upon your pillow and your face...Again I waited, wanting to rush down so
we could talk.
I have so many giftsfor you.
You awakened late this morning and rushed off
for the day.
My tears were in the rain. Today you looked
so sad, so alone.
It makes my heart ache because I understand.
My friends let me down and hurt me many times,
but I love you.
I try to tell you in the quiet green grass.
I whisper it in the leaves and trees,
and breathe it in the color of the flowers.
I shout it to you in the mountain streams,
and give the birds love songs to sing.
I clothe you with warm sun-
shine and perfume the air.
My love for you is deeper than the
oceans and bigger than the biggest want or
need you could ever have.
We will spend eternity in heaven.
I know how hard it is on earth.
I really know, because I was there,
and I want to help you.
My Father wants to help you, too.
He's that way, you know. Just
call me, ask me, talk to me.
It is your decision...I have chosen you,
and because of this I will wait...Because I love you.

A Love Letter for my Daughters
I have a song in my head, I heard
it when I was young
little did I know, How much this song
would touch my very soul
forgive me, for I do not have all the words,
But My Love Letter to my girls will start
out with this song.
Turn around and your two,
Turn around and your four, Turn
around and you are a young woman
walking out of the door.
Turn around and your two, Turn around
and your four, Turn
around and your a young woman with
Babes of your own.
So to my girls as I recall your
years, in this poem,
Many of tears will fall from my eyes..
To Nicole & Tina
March 12 what a wonderful day. I am at
the hospital, Happy as I can be
for today, I am having a baby of my own.
7:11 PM. Nicole Corrine is
her name. I am full of joy, But wait,
why are they running with my child
Someone please tell me, where have they
taken my child. Do not worry she is a
wee bit small, weighting in at 2 lbs 5 oz.
A voice does say.
Then in comes a child so small so
sweet. I am a mom with happy feet.
Times comes by and oh how you've grown,
For today you said my name.
the sweetest word I ever did hear,
Time has come again, you are starting
Pre-school, The longest two hours I have
known. Wow you made mommy a picture
Lets put it on the fridge for all too see.
Oh no you are five, Sept. has taken
As the first day comes. And oh my,
Don't you look so sweet. The bus pulls
up and takes you away.
As I smile a sweet goodbye to you,
oh how my heart does cry.
For you see sweetheart, Tho I was happy
for you, I was without your sweet smile
and again the longest hours I knew.
Wow you got your first report card,
oh my you got all stars,

you are. It is your Graduation day from
High School, Mom is so proud!
Then you say, the sweetest
words again, Mom your the best!
because of you, I made it! Did you think
that I would ever forget the words that
you have whispered to me.
Time comes again. You are going out the door
Mom I will see you when I get home,
Again a tear falls from my Eyes,
My babe Has left me once again
What Joy you haven given me!
What laughts I have had! For I remember,
every smile, and every tear
that you have had.
I recall our Mom talks oh so well.
How It hurt me so, to keep a smile of,

I would say, Nicole I love you so
What life does, you must always know,
No matter what you do, no matter where you go,

To cheer you up, and wipe your tears away,
