So long ago
You were a girl
With eyes full of stars
That I could lose myself in
With dreams of tomorrow
 
The talks we shared
Holding each other close
The joys we found
Your head on my shoulder
Your heart beating with mine
 
    The greatest song
    This boy could sing
    Like rain on my skin
    Your touch…
    Like April showers
    Making everything bloom
 
 
The day we got married
You and I side by side
A circle of stars in our eyes
Happy to live and learn
Our hearts now whole
 
And when each day was done
In our soft silence
I could feel you thinking
Of the heaven I found
Each time I held you
 
    The greatest song
    This boy could sing
    Like rain on my skin
    Your touch…
    Like April showers
    Making everything bloom
 
 
In time
The angels joined our song
With bits of you and I
We held the world in our hands
And I would smile cause in our arms
We finally held the tomorrow we spoke of
So long ago
 
And when all was still
Each night when you would sleep
My paradise was found
And I would smile
Because I now possessed
All I needed to make it through
 
    The greatest song
    This boy could sing
    Like rain on my skin
    Your touch…
    Like April showers
    Making everything bloom
 
 
How when fate interrupted
Oh sorrowful moment!
The pain of parting
Unable to speak
You holding me close
Your heart beating with mine
 
My world on my shoulder
You loving me
Like I am loving you
That is all I needed to guide me home
Where I will wait for you
 
    The greatest song
    This boy could sing
    Like rain on my skin
    Your touch…
    Like April showers
    Making everything bloom
 
 
I pray someday on distant shore
To be reunited with that little girl
Whose eyes were full of stars
That I would lose myself in
 
And hear about that life of hers
That life I helped to begin
And how wonderful it all turned out
And the joys my angels found
In pursuit of their tomorrows
 
And as I hold you
Wiping away your tears
We will share our song once again
For all of heaven to hear
 
    The greatest song
    This boy could sing
    Like rain on my skin
    Your touch…
    Like April showers
    Making everything bloom
 
 
Thank you for your love
Thank you for the life we shared
Thank you for guiding me home
You gave me everything I ever needed
You helped lift me to higher ground
 
You are the greatest song
This boy could sing
And I will always love you
 
Fear not my love
This song we shared
Will never fade away…

For my Sister who lost her Husband in a car accident...

He was on life support for a couple of days as he was an organ donor...
I watched April laying in the hospital bed with him and sobbing on his chest almost those entire two days...

We were there as a family as they pulled him from life support and we watched April shower him with love as they said their final goodbye...

Eric always loved to sing...

April and his boys were his greatest song...

What a very beautiful, sweet and tender story of love. It had to break your sisters Heart and her boys. I'm so sorry for her greatest loss. I'm so glad she was able to find love again.
I sat with my oldest brother Jim who was on life support for 2 days? It's one of the headset things I had too do. His wife left him 6 months before and wouldn't let the doctor take him off life support. Finally the doctor asked how long she was gone. 6 months, so the doctor said, "She has no right we will slowly take him off". His sons were sobbing and finally my brother was gone. I told his sons to take his mask off and kiss him good bye. They held him so tight and couldn't let go. I stayed with them until they accepted his death. My brother should have died 2 days before. Their own mother wouldn't even think of her sons and what it would do to see him like that. Evil comes in all forms. I'm very close to his son Jason, he couldn't Thank me enough. I said, no thank you for allowing me to spend those days with my brother who I loved so much. Jim would be so proud of his son Jason. The other son, not so, Evil like his Mom.. He's at peace so at least he's finally Home.

Thank you. It was... I hated seeing her and the family in so much pain. I hear she found someone and they are very much in love and getting married. The cool thing is I got to meet him a couple of times and I think she and the boys will be in very good hands... life goes on :)
