God bless Mommy, and Aunt Jenny, too.
And please help Daddy not be so blue.
Lately he has been doin' lotsa crying.
And I think it has to do with Mommy dyin.
My mommy worked in an office way up high.
She used to tell me she worked way up in the sky.
I had only been there a few times to see where.
And she had this really cool desk and chair.
All around her desk were pictures of dad and me.
She said those were the things she held most dearly.
Mom would call me on the phone at day care every day.
She said she wanted to hear my voice and know I was okay.
Dad said she called him and told him not to worry,
She told him that she loved us but had to get out in a hurry.
He said he could hear in her voice the fear within.
And that day she didn't call me, she just called him.
I sat there at lunch waiting for mommy to call.
And then Daddy came to get me, he was standing in the hall.
He just held his arms out and picked me right on up.
And told me that he loved me, I was his little buttercup.
He had tears in his eyes, and his lip was quivering.
Even though it was hot out, my daddy was shivering.
I knew then that something was definitely not right.
I waited for Mommy all that day, and all night.
Daddy said Mommy took a jump to feel the breeze.
He said Mommy knew exactly what her fate would be.
She held the hand of a stranger as they took one last step.
Takin a leap of faith, and had one last breath.
Mommy never came home, and she never will.
Aunt Jenny was on a plane, so God bless Uncle Bill.
He has been spending alot of time at our place,
tears are constantly rolling down his face.
Daddy took me shopping. He bought me a bike.
And he got me some boots, and jeans that I like.
Shopping was something mommy used to do with me.
Havin daddy do it is just as good company.
Aunt Jenny was mommy's sister, as well as her friend.
And daddy said they were close until the very end.
So God bless Grandma and Grandpa and my Uncle Roy.
There is only one child left, and that is their boy.
God bless all the kids who feel this way tonight
from losing their beloved in the towers or on flight.
God bless the hungry children who have no home at all.
And God bless the firemen and officers who went to see you in that fall.
Please give mommy a kiss, and hug her like a bear.
Tell her I miss her fingers runnin thru my hair.
Dad is tryin really hard but my pony tail ain't straight.
He tends to do it in a hurry because he's always runnin late.
I know Mommy is an angel. She was down here, too.
Take special care of her since she now lives with you.
This was not a moment to forget, everyone will remember
the last time I seen my Mommy was the eleventh of September...
