Oxygen - Page Text Content

BC: I believe in you without limitation. I am here for you beyond my life and beyond all time. I will live forever in your heart.

FC: OXYGEN | By Mom Photography by Danny

1: For Jason and Danny, who I love so deeply . . . so desperately . . . so unconditionally. You are my reason for breathing. Forever and always, Mom 2012

2: You are my oxygen, When I can't breathe. On you both I can always rely.

3: You are my helium. It's your belief in me, That fuels my goals and desire - given wings I could fly.

5: Yet, when like Icarus, The giddiness of flight takes hold, You are the gravity that keeps me from soaring too high.

6: You are the beacon light, By which I find my way.

7: It's your conscience I often will use as my guide.

8: Funny, I used to teach you; But now you two teach me. Your insight and wisdom cannot be denied.

9: And when I'm ready to admit, What I feared I could not face; It's to you I can turn and quietly confide.

10: In hushed tones I speak; And it's your love I feel, | Giving me courage to confront things from which I have shied.

12: I move forward with purpose; Because when all seemed lost, You gave me hope and the will to go forth - sword held high.

14: You are my laughter and the tears I was unable to cry. | You restored my passion, When I could not feel life.

16: You are like water - life's blood; And even when my blood bleeds . . .

17: You are healing, like a well that just won't run dry.

19: Like a beautiful melody, Etched in my memory, Every joy, each challenge recalled with love and with pride.

20: You are the beauty of this world, Filling me with delight.

21: Because you live your lives fully, I am able to love mine.

22: What a bizarre journey we're on. For each mystery we solve, New ones are created in the blink of an eye.

23: In this new reality, Where dreams and science merge, | The only limit that binds you is the limitless sky.

25: So don't play life too safe - With calculated risk comes reward.

26: You can't hope to win,

27: If you're too afraid to try.

28: Creative, quick, clever, brilliant! | I hope you see it too.

29: Your lives have prepared you - there's nothing you can't survive.

30: You know, I wanted to protect you, From pain, struggle and loss. God knows how hard I had tried.

31: But from pain came compassion, From struggle perseverance. I guess God knew much better than I.

32: You overcame tears with laughter. With each ache came new power. Knowledge was born from mistakes - whether they were yours, Dad's or mine.

33: You were our most precious gift, You are our most precious love. | In you we live on and never will die.
