Liftoff


Colorful, shimmering spheres,
We send you in tearful devotion
To fly with the music of always
Into the kingdom of hope.

Though death tried his best go divide us,
Life and love keep the children beside us.
Our hearts fly along to the place beyond tears
With the colorful, shimmering spheres.

Rise gently, you glistening orbs--
You carry a precious freight--
All the love our hearts can command,
All the courage and hope that we own.

Drift onward, you radiant envoys--
You carry with you much grief,
But laughter also, and smiles.
You carry the memories of parents
You carry the thanks of sad hearts
Who relished their child's life
For a while, not for long--
Not nearly for lnog enough....

We send you to fly to the sky,
To rise like the magical sun--
Tell heaven about our loss
Declare it again and forever:
Our love for the children lives on....

Shimmering spheres, be released
As a symbol of deep celebration
Helping us to remember again
that we--our children and we--
are together enfolded by Spirit.

Though death tried his best go divide us,
Life and love keep the children beside us.
Our hearts fly along to the place beyond tears
With the colorful, shimmering spheres.
