We Shall Meet Again
By: Amy M. Kennedy

Eternal heaven is now where you rest
With God in the divine kingdom of power
Your leaving my life, has been my ultimate test
I miss the love that use to be in my life, like an ever-present flower

It has taken me years to fully understand
Nights I cried myself softly to sleep
However you've never left me, you still reach out your hand
That is why I can smile, even as I weep

Your love filled our lives with such peace and grace
I was only a child, unable to put into words the things I wanted to say
Inside my heart will always be your home, your own special place
Now I am a woman, so I now I want to tell you so much, now TODAY

Thank you does not even begin to say how I feel
Your unselfish ways, and ever -lasting love touched my life more than I can say
The first time we met, that day in the park, my heart you did steal
Even though I yelled at you several times, you never went away

You stood by me when no one else would
Teaching me so many things about the world that we live in
You gave me a home, my heart, a love so pure when noone else could
You told me honey all the secrets of your life, are secured in your heart...deep within

Now as I sit, thinking of our past memories I can't help but smile
Even though sometimes itís hard to breathe because I miss you so much
I now realize that you and I will only be apart for a little while
Our souls will rejoin in heaven, where once again I will feel your touch

Mom, I know that I never said it near enough
However, I think being you, you already knew
I am saying it now...thank you for your love, and I thank God above
For allowing a lost kid and a woman who so wanted a child to share such a wonderful love

As I go through my life, not a day goes by that I don't think of you
Soon I will be graduating from college, something I've wanted since I was a little girl
Who would have thought I'd have accomplished so much, you that is who
The years have gone by in such a hurried whirl

You brought out in me the very best that I could be
I will remember you for always, my angel in heaven and on Earth
Holding my head up high, remembering whose daughter I am, I will make the world see
That I am someone special....I am Amy Michelle Kennedy

Well Amy Michelle Kennedy
This was something special to read, you have graciously showed us the inner most part of you and I thank you for sharing it with us.

I cried after reading this.  You were blessed to have such a loving mother, and I'm sure she is so so proud of you.

somethings are better the second time around
somethings need to be seen again, to be felt again...
love ya, jm

 she said I dont know if I've ever been good enough,
and I'm a little bit rusty, and I feel like my head is caving in.
...and I dont know if I've ever been really loved by a hand thats touched me...
and I feel like somethings gonna give...
and I'm a little bit angry.
