5 songs in memory of my baby girl

What do you think?

19 years ago I lost my baby girl,Tiffany at 11 months old. I played some of these for her funeral. Others just remind me of her. I still listen to all of them often because, even though it has been many years, I can still feel the pain like it was yesterday. Time does make easier to deal with but doesn’t make the pain lessen. I miss her terribly still.

It's So Hard to Say Goodbye by Boyz II Men

Lyrics

How do I say goodbye to what we had?
The good times that made us laugh, outweighed the bad.
I thought we’d get to see forever, but forever has blown away.
It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.
I don’t know where this road is gonna lead to.
All I know is where we’ve been and what we’ve been through.
If it gets me to tomorrow, I hope it’s worth all the pain.
It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.
And I’ll take with me the memories to be my sunshine after the rain.
It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

If I Had Only Known by Reba McEntire

Lyrics

If I had only known
It was the last walk in the rain
I’d keep you out for hours in the storm
I would hold your hand
Like a life line to my heart
Underneath the thunder we’d be warm
If I had only known
It was our last walk in the rain
If I had only known
I’d never hear your voice again
I’d memorize each thing you ever said
And on those lonely nights
I could think of them once more
Keep your words alive inside my head
If I had only known
I’d never hear your voice again
You were the treasure in my hand
You were the one who always stood beside me
So unaware I foolishly believed 
That you would always be there
But then there came a day
And I turned my head and you slipped away
If I had only known
It was my last night by your side
I’d pray a miracle would stop the dawn
And when you’d smile at me
I would look into your eyes
And make sure you know my love
For you goes on and on
If I had only known
If I had only known
The love I would’ve shown 
If I had only known

If You Came Back From Heaven by Lori Morgan

Time In A Bottle by Jim Croce

Lyrics

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day
‘Til eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you
If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you
But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go
Through time with
If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you
But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go
Through time with
