Thinking of you, Ashley dear.

I wanted to share this song in honor of Ashley Ames ~December 21, 1986-July 6, 2010.

We love and miss you dearly, Ashley. Whether we had the opportunity to meet or not, the world is a better place because we were graced with your beautiful life. We will never tire of the light you provide us from shining your stars : )

Jem- You will make it

Go to bed everything’s alright
Don’t know the whole
world’s changing
As you sleep through the night
Wake up slowly and it’s a
different world

Hear the news and the
floods begin
Screams so loud but only
felt within
Heart is shattered
The pieces can’t be found

I feel your pain, I wrote this
song for you, for you
You will make it, you will
make it through
I promise you, he would
want you to

Months go by, still living
in a daze
Don’t know what you’ve done
With the last seven days
Soul is numb and life
is like a dream

Helping hands but you
push them away
How could they understand
Don’t wanna share your pain
Afraid to heal, ’cause that
would mean goodbye

I feel your pain, I wrote this
song for you, for you
You will make it, you will
make it through
I promise you, she would
want you to

One day sunlight hits
a photograph
And it makes you smile
The memories dance
around you now
And they make you smile
You’re not alone
You’ll never be
Just like the stars
They oversee
And they whisper to you
You’re still, you’re still,
You’re still, you’re still alive

I feel your pain, I wrote this
song for you, for you
You will make it, you
will make it through
I promise you, they would
want you to

Do not stand at my
grave and weep
I am not there I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds
that blow
I am the diamond glints
on snow
I am the sun on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain
When you awaken in the
morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that
shine at night
Do not stand at my grave
and cry
I am not there; I did not die

We love you so much Ashley.  We can feel your love all around us : )
