My Dad and Uncle
Are Always Here With Me

Emotions Run Deep

Born with a Gift


My Dad and Uncle
Are Always Here With Me

My Dad and Uncle,
are up in Heaven now,
but somehow I feel them with me.
Yes, they’re here somehow,
I know I can’t see them,
but sometimes just for a second,
I know I feel their presence.
I pray to them at night,
only they can make things right.
My Dad and Uncle,
are up in Heaven now,
but for me they’re with me somehow,
My two best buddies in the whole world.
I can sometimes hear their voices,
and imagine what they might say,
I know they guide me day by day.
I can only reach them in my dreams,
In my dreams, they often appear,
I wish they could really be here.
My Dad and Uncle are in Heaven now,
but for me they’re here somehow.

Emotions Run Deep

Looking back over the years,
so much to treasure,
so much to keep,
A lifetime of memories,
all spent together,
Our family love,
unforgettable,
for emotions run deep,
our love we keep.
Emotions seep through,
in all we do,
I know he is in Heaven now,
My Dad,
So is my Uncle Dom,
I pray they are at peace,
and know they are looking down,
I sense their presence,
I know they’re here,
We are at our new home now,
The memories we made in the old house,
live inside of us,
for though time marches on,
and life puts us through changes,
Emotions run deep,
Our love we always keep.

Born with a Gift
(To my sister, Margaret)

You were born under the zodiac sign of Scorpio
You were born with a gift,
Talents you possess are a cornucopia,
For you have so many,
Your creativity is aplenty.
You were born to use a needle and thread,
To sew, to knit, to crochet,
You were born to use a computer,
You have a knack for all things technical,
You can figure out how to use
all of these new electronic gadgets.
You know how to put things together,
Where A connects with B,
And C connects with D,
Just give it to you,
and you got it working.
You were born with a gift,
You were born a star in your own right,
In all things you are so bright.
