One of Amy's favorite songs was Wind Beneath My Wings she said it was us under God's wings.....She would also say Aunt Stephie you are the wind beneath my wings.....

"Wind Beneath My Wings"

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that's your way.
You always walked a step behind.

So I was the one with all the glory,
while you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name for so long.
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.

Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would be nothing without you.

Did you ever know that you're my hero?
You're everything I wish I could be.
I could fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

Did I ever tell you you're my hero?
You're everything, everything I wish I could be.
Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

Oh, the wind beneath my wings.
You, you, you, you are the wind beneath my wings.
Fly, fly, fly away. You let me fly so high.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.

Fly, fly, fly high against the sky,
so high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you,
thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings.
 

 

 



You Were Taken On Angel's Wings

"You were taken on angel's wings

As you sweetly and quietly slept

And returned to heaven before we knew

That you had even left

Our hearts are heavy and sorrowed

That our time with you was so brief

For you were our gift of heaven's light

That is now replaced with grief

But not so much that we won't be grateful

For every second you were here

You filled our hearts with so much joy

Treasured memories we'll hold forever dear

And though we weren't blessed to see you grow up

We were blessed to see you smile

And hold you lovingly in our arms ..."

Remembering You With Gladness

"When you were born, on that special day

I held you close to me

And joy overflowed from deep in my heart

With a power I'd never conceived

And I knew from that very moment

That you were a gift of love

Sent to bless my life in so many ways

Truly sent from God above

Watching you grow was a privilege

Daily marveling at the changes in you

Finding it hard to contain my excitement

Dreaming of all the future things we'd do

Both wanting time to slow down and speed up

Sometimes wishing a baby you could stay

Other times, wishing the years could move faster

Perhaps in my own selfish way

For I had so many things to show you

Things planned for us to do and see

Wanting to give you every experience

That a magical childhood would need

And I loved all the things we did together

To have your sweet shadow following me

I swelled with pride when you called me"Mommy"    

Being your mother meant so much to me                          

Words couldn't express my joy at your birth

And will never express the loss in my heart

Knowing you've left and returned to Heaven

That it was deemed your time to part

And though I'm not sure how I'll get through this grief

I promise this much...my dearest my dearest daughter...to you 

That I'll remember you each day with gladness

For that is what you'd want me to do

And though such deep sorrow cannot be wished away

It isn't the memory you'd want to leave

No, you'd want me to remember you with gladness ..."

A life so full of beauty

A life so full of hope

Taken from my arms

Now nothing left to hold

In my heart there is a hole

 Impossible to fill

Still looking for the answers

And needing all your will

Taken to a place

Too far for me to travel

I would gladly walk a million miles

Barefoot upon the ground

Just to see your face again

Just to feel your hand

Just to know your okay

And to try to understand

The reasons why,I may never know

A lesson today in letting go

I'll take with me the memories

Of a life that was so bright

I will look into the heavens

And see your shinning light

Knowing that someday

We will be together again

Taking your love with me

Will keep me strong until the end
