leighs eulogy poem / Dad The love for you cannot be measured Nor can it be weighed The time we had with you cannot be counted By the hours or by the days.
No words can express the loss we feel inside No touch can ease the pain, or wipe the tears we cry.
You were always there for us with your strength to guide us through, with helping hands, a gentle smile, complaints were far and few.
I know you are with us, watching down from above You will help us take each step, you’ll hold us up with your love.
And the empty feeling we have within, with time will slowly subside. For when life has to end, we have to begin to heal the wounds we feel inside.
Its inside we see your smile, through the mirror of our eyes. And its your laughter we hear and the wind blowing by.
It’s your voice we hear saying be strong, I will get you through. It’s your touch we feel when crying, crying the tears we have for you.
And it’s the memories we have, we will treasure everyday Like old photographs in a book, a book we will never put away.
always on my mind / Dad Another week is over ,the weekends nearly here another painfelt thought of you another dried up tear
not a day goes by son youre always on my mind but when i need to talk to you the words i cannot find
so much i'd like to say to you never knowing where to start no matter what i say or do it aways breaks my heart
so at times like that ,and i feel lost i close my eyes and pray and listen out to hear your voice for the words i know you'd say
for i know your always near son you walk with us every day theres no need for us to worry you always guide us on our way
so when im stuck and feeling lost for words i cannot find ill close my eyes an think of you youre always on my mind

MY ANGEL! / JADE XXXXXXXXXXXX (COUSIN)
Thought of u today,thats not new.Thought of u yesterday and the day before too. I'll think of u tomorow and my whole life thorugh and i'll think of you forever because i love you so much and by the memories i have of u. U ARE MY ANGEL!
birthdays do not end / Dad Birthdays do not end with death, But last as long as love, A maelstrom of memories That grace and honor move. And so we celebrate your day By visiting your grave, A place that you have left long since, But is all that we have.
Dear spirit, come and join us here, Your loved ones by your stone! Come sweep across the barrier To claim us as your own!
Happy birthday, dearest one! Oh, happy, happy day! Not even the most bitter night Can take this joy away!
PEOPLE ASK ME HOW I'M DOING AND I SAY THAT I'M OK.
THE FACT IS THAT I'M NOT...MY PAIN WORSENS EVERY DAY! I WONDER WHAT IF I HAD SAID,OR OF ALL THAT COULD'VE BEEN DONE. IF I HAD ONLY KNOWN YOU'D BE GONE,MY PRECIOUS,LOVING SON. SOME CAN'T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND AND THINK I SHOULD GO ON. BUT HOW CAN I DO SUCH A THING WHEN A PART OF ME IS GONE. THEY SAY THAT IT GETS EASIER AND YOUR BURDEN IS LESS TO BARE. I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE THAT'S TRUE WHEN ALL YOU LOVED'S NO LONGER THERE. I PRAY THAT GOD WILL EASE MY MIND AND SHOW ME HOW TO JUST GO ON. AND GIVE ME BACK THE HEART HE TOOK THE DAY HE CALLED YOU HOME. ALTHOUGH MY HEART IS BROKEN AND MY TEARS OVERFLOW, I TRY TO HIDE THE SADNESS SO NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW. PRETENDING'S JUST NOT EASY WHEN YOU KNOW NOT HOW TO SEE,THE REASON YOU ARE HURTING ...WHY'S THIS HAPPENING TO ME? I'LL NEVER SEE YOU GO TO work OR HAVE CHILDREN OF YOUR OWN. THE LINK THAT MADE MY LIFE COMPLETE IS NOW FOREVER GONE. I'LL TRY TO BE MUCH STRONGER AND KNOW THAT YOU LIVE ON. ALTHOUGH I KNOW YOU'RE THERE WITH GOD, I FEEL SO ALL ALONE. FROM THIS DAY FORWARD I HAVE TO SEE THAT YOU REALLY NEVER DIED.FOR AS LONG AS YOU LIVE INSIDE MY HEART YOUR MEMORY'S STILL ALIVE!!!!!!

So much has changed in my life Leigh since you've beeen gone i feel like i'm a completely different person. Igeuss losing you has really made me have to check myself i look at certain qualities you had and i strive towards them same qualities, I really miss you loads Leaky see i never really understood about love t but when i lost you i understood love in a completely different context i really do know wot love ii and it hurts to know some one i love so dearly is near yet so far from me, it rips me apart, i don't really talk to people about how i'm feeling,, except for you i often write little notes and put em in an envelope and leavre em at your graveside i know you read my words.. see it's not that i don't wonna talk about ya it's just i find it to hard it makes me cry coz every time i talk about you i picture that day,,Wish i'd got to spend more time with ya that day , Your Dads doing really well never known such a strong charactor yeah there's been times when he's been at rock bottom but he's strong as an ox and he's faith in you gets him by i think..

thank you leigh xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx--------$~~-$~~-$~~-$~~x-x-xx-x-xx-x~-$~xx-x~-$~xx-x-~-$~xx-x-~-$-~xx / Dad Xxxxxxxx (xxxxxxxxxx) Leigh its been nearly a year son ,to me it feels like a lifetime without you.The day we heard the tragic news was the day i now realise that was the day that something inside me went forever,something i know i will never get back .If you asked me what the was i couldnt answer ,what words are there to describe an empty feeling that never goes ,a deep numbness inside seeing the world through sad eyes when my beautiful boy had such smiling eyes ,to know i wont smell you again ,or be able to share anything with you, i do know that ill still be able to have many conversations with you and always will ,but thats not enough mate ,i hear youre replies but not youre voice, i feel ive been stolen away from me something so precious and it makes me so angry , but knowing youre in a wonderful special place now babe gives me hope that we will share so many special things one day. even when the sun is shining and the birds are singing and i recount special memorys it is still hard to smile without crying at the same time . that day for whatever reason so many people lost a part of them but it went with you son with so much love.i hear that everything happens for a reason,but what explainable reason could you be taken from us at such a young age. I'll always know when i look at youre big bro and little sis that you are always by there side and what a great man you would of grown into . Im so proud that i can call you my son and how proud and lucky i was to have three special children bless me and mum.keep looking down for me mate coz i will never ever stop looking up for you ,thank you leigh for just being you x sleep tite my angel xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
My soldier / Nelly (brother) I know a young strong soldier that walks a different plain,
I know a young strong soldier where my loss is heavens gain,
I know a young strong soldier that i know will go far,
I know a young strong soldier thats forever in my heart.
I know a young strong soldier and he's much stronger than me
I love this young strong soldier for just being Leigh.
R.I.P. my soldier xxxx
My Angel / Dad There's a special angel in Heaven, That is a part of me. It is not where I wanted him, But where God wanted him to be. he was here just a moment, Like a night time shooting star. And though he is in Heaven he isn't very far. He touched the hearts of many, Like only an angel can do. I would've held him every minute, If the end I only knew. So I send this special message, To Heaven up above. Please take care of my angel, And send him all my love!
strength/ Mum My days are long and nights are short, when I wake the pain and hurt I feel is more than words can say, its hard to carry on,I feel you wrap your arms around me pick me up and give me your strength to carry on.As I stand at your resting place I ask the question why my son....And you wipe away some of my tears,thats when i realize that through the pain and tears how proud and honoured that I am blessed with a wonderful loving caring son for 17yrs. No-one or anything can take my precious moments and memories away from me,I know you are here with me and I wait to listen for your voice and heart beat.But i know one day i'll see your smiling face, your big brown eyes as you wait for me with open arms at heavens door. Until that day my darling son I'll just share each second of the day with you in my heart with the strength you give me, with more love and memories than words can ever say.Miss and love you my little man all my love mum xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
a poem for our loving son / Mum And Dad
His smile was his trademark, wherever he went. A room would brighten when Leigh came in 'cause the first thing you saw, would be his grin! A son and brother so precious; a friend so true! Whatever he had, he'd share it with you! A thought, a deed, a kind word for a while But always, oh always, He'd share 'His Smile'. Our hearts are breaking, our thoughts are going wild! We've lost our friend: We've lost our child! "But only for a while," I heard Jesus say "He's been chosen for the Master's Bouquet!" Hand selected by Jesus from this 'garden of life' Gone to Heaven!-He's through with this strife! Why is he gone? God only knows. But Oh what a treasure, A "smiling rose!"
Forever in our hearts love you always leigh Dad,Mum,Neil,Charmaine xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
happy birthday sone love you xxx / Dad I looked toward the clouds today and for a moment saw your face and wondered just where you have gone and i hope it's a better place.
Did you show yourself to me today to tell me you're alright? Or was it just a daydream playing tricks upon my sight?
Then I thought of when you left you did not say a word. We never said good-bye but in our hearts your good-bye was heard.
You have changed our lives forever your time here not in vain and hope you know we always wanted to keep you safe from pain.
We will always feel the void inside because you are not here. But each new thought you send our way let's us know you're always near.
So until our journey nears it's end and we hear the angels sing we'll face each new day as it comes and live off the love you bring.
miss you still / Sam (friend)
Another year nearly gone but still not easy. Often think about things we done together and what we could have been doing together still. That night or you will ever be forgotten. Miss u mate Close
i miss youxx / Miesha Xxxxxxxx (cuz)
Loved ones are precious
I know this for a fact
And when you lose one
It’s like an attack
Every day has been a struggle.
And five years later and I still sit and stare at your pictures
Sometimes I sleep with them by my side.
I miss your voice.
I miss your smile
Your eyes your touch
Your smell your phone calls
And your comforting ways.
xx miesha xx Close
