Go Tell Them All I Did Not Die…

Tears. Puddles. Choking feeling in my throat as I just clicked on this song, written for another mother with an angel baby. Baby Jack. Taken early in his life at just nine days old.

The song moves through me. Around me. Lifts me up even as it tears me down. The pain is still there (when I allow it.) This song brings me there. My breath carries me through it.

Thank you Spirit for this beautiful reminder today of my babies in heaven.

I love you my little angels. Thank you for the gift you are in my life. For watching down on me from the other side.

As I prepare to remember you each uniquely on Mother’s Day, fast approaching, this song is for you, my five sweet baby angels. I love you each dearly.

The Other Side

i’m over on the other side
where life and death softly divide.
left my skin and bones behind
now i’m over on the other side.

can you feel me there with you?
my breath is gone but i’m not through.
loved you then and i still do
from over on the other side.

i can fly. really fly.
below the earth … all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i’m just over on the other side.

it’s good here on the other side.
the sweetest songs…the bluest skies.
thank you for the tears you cried
but it’s good here on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth…all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i’m just over on the other side

the world is smaller than a needle’s eye.
where life and death softly divide.
when you leave your skin and bones behind
i’ll be waiting on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth … all through the sky.
go tell em all i did not die.
i’m just over on the other side.
