Someday Somehow Matthew Billiter

For Marilyn
For Sue


I close my eyes…
And as it so often does
My mind returns to You
I wonder what You’d say if you were here
Probably tell me not to cry
But sometimes I still do…
Probably tell me to stop questioning everything
But I don’t know if I can
Even though, I know
Why You’re gone and I’m still here-
Is something I’ll never understand…
Or why I can’t be where You are
When I can still feel You and smell You
There’s no way
That You could be very far...
When every other beat of my heart
Seems to say your Name,
And I almost pray
That It will simply burst apart,
but it doesn't, so I just wish...
I wish You could speak to me, and…
Tell me it’s gonna be OK
Tell me that this isn’t the end
I just wanna know that someday,
Somehow, I will see You again

I close my eyes and listen,
but even the leaves on the trees are still...
You don't say any of the things I want to hear
but it's ok, cause i believe in my heart
Someday I'll see You and You will

Charlene Adams Hopkins (Bruce) Whitney, I was trying recently to remember whose wedding it was that I was pressed into service at the rehersal and I accompanied Rachel down the (outside) aisle. I suspect now it was yours, but after all my trials in th past few years, my memory is not what it used to be. However, I still remember clearly Rachel's hand on my arm. I recall that she had the lightest touch, practically no weight at all. I knew that she was battling cancer at the time and suspected her bones had become osteoporotic after all the treatments and I certainly know what that means now. However, this would be only the clinincal explanation of why she seemed to have no weight when she put her arm in my arm. The explanation I prefer is that Rachel was an angel and angels, since they are not of this world, have no weight. I certainly felt that I was touched by an angel for that brief moment and I will never forget her. Souls like Rachel are merely lent to us only for a period of time, of which how long we are not to know. We just have to celebrate that time and keep it in our collective memory forever.

10 years ago, my life changed forever. I received the horrible news that one of my best friends Rachel Barnes had passed away from the dreaded disease that she had battled for a while, Hodgkins Lymphoma. Everything was in her favor, wonderful matches for stem cell replacements, countless chemo treatments, radiation treatments and so much more, but God had another plan for her. She was so selfless within the whole treatment process. I dont know how many times I would say, "why does this have to happen to you" and she would say "why not me?" She was the most positive person I know. At the end of her battle, she was so sick that she couldnt even see her friends face to face. I know that was her way of dealing with what was coming. I didnt understand at the time, but now I understand. She had to grow up and experience so much in her short life. I am so thankful that I was blessed with her friendship. She was a spunky, open-minded, creative, loving person. She was my maid of honor in my wedding. I am so thankful that she accepted that very special place in my very special day. I think of her everyday and wish that she could have met my babies, but I am confident that I will see her again. Until then, precious Ray Ray...... love you, my friend.

Hodgkin's lymphoma
Gone but never forgotten
Rachel was a best friend to anyone who came into her life. We spent almost every weekend together from 4th grade to our Senior year. It all began in Cumberland Lake. No matter what we did we always had so much from. Slumber parties, camping, concerts, softball, dance competitions, swimming, prank calling, we did it together. I even spent the night on school nights. She loved her life, but she did have the best parents, who let live her life to the fullest. I miss her so much, the Barnes are a family I have so many distinct memories with. I read her message to me in my senior book often, and cry and smile. She was a special person who I will always remember and love dearly. The whole Barnes family.

en years ago today I learned that young people aren't invincible. I learned that you should live every day like it's your last and you should tell your friends and family that you love them every single day. I learned all this in the most unfortunate way.
Ten years ago the glue that held many of my elementary and high school friendships and dance team together passed away from the monster known as cancer. She had one of the biggest smiles I've ever seen (even to this day) and one of the most tender hearts. I often wonder how many kids should would have, where she would be living (probably NYC), and what she would be doing.
Because of Rachel's death I realized our time on the planet is short and it is so important not to wait around for things to happen. So I encourage you to tell your family and friends that you love them right now and then go out and do something nice for someone in honor of my dear friend.

(Bruce) Scrapy and Marilyn Barnes posted a remembrance of their daughter Rachel, whom they lost to cancer ten years ago. It reminded me of eight years ago, when our family lost a child of ours also to cancer. His name was Austin Adams and he left behind a grieving brother and mom and dad. Like Rachel, he was a happy soul and inspired everyone around him The week before he passed away, Charlene and I were visiting her mom, who lived in Means, and her brother Bruce and Austin, who lived in Mt. Sterling were also there. When we got ready to leave, we were going to drive to Mt. Sterling so Mom could visit other family.
At that time, Austin, who is on the right below, had battled rhabdomyosarcoma, for four years. Rhabdo is a vicious cancer, with its victims rarely lasting more than six months. But his parents, Bruce and Tammy Carroll Adams, never treated him like a child with cancer and let him play at whatever he wanted to do. I honestly believe that is why we had him for so long. In the picture below, Austin's brother Zach is on the right. He graduated from high school last year and completed a year of college this year.
I was honored to be asked to give Tammy away at their wedding and I was more than happy to do so. At that time, she said that whenever they had children, I would be their Papaw. When those two arrived I was more than happy to assume that role as well. In spite of a collapsing spine, I was probably beaming with pride when we attended Zach's graduation.
But back to the day Charlene and I were visiting her mom. When we got ready to leave, Austin asked Charlene to ride back with his dad and his granny so that he could ride alone with me. "It's a guy thing," he told her. On the way back, we talked about his pets, and I suspect he wanted some assurance they would be taken care of if he were gone. I told him that people love their animals and will take care of them. What's more, no one ever forgets the pets they have. He seemed especially fascinated with that statement. "I can remember my first pet,' I told him, as indeed I can. "You never forget the things you love," I told him. "They stay in your heart forever." He seemed pleased with that. I suspect he wanted some assurance that he would not be forgotten as he knew his time on earth was running out. He passed away at home, gently, the following week. His pets were nearby.
I told Marilyn and Scrapy that on the occasion of Rachel's part in her best friend Whitney's wedding, I was pressed into service to act as Best Man during rehearsal and I remember so well Rachel's light touch on my arm as we walked along. I assured them that I can recognize angels and Rachel was one, just as my "grandson" Austin was as well.
I have to add Charlene to that list also. Since February, I have been to the ER five times and three times, near death, placed on life support. Charlene stayed with me, even through visitors were supposed to leave the unit when time was up. I suspect the ICU staff recognized also that Charlene was an angel, talking to me while I was unconscious and singing to me as well.
I think I am more than qualified to recognize angels on earth when I see them and on these occasions at least, I definitely saw them all.

 How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Coal Trucks on the Mountain and Other Lies U Told  / Your Greatest Fan.

          Inside

Bottled up inside

Are the words I never said

The feelings that I hide

The lines you never read.

 

You can see it in my eyes,

Read it on my face;

Trapped inside are lies

Of the past I can't replace

 

With memories that linger-

Won't seem to go away,

Why can't I be happy?

Today's a brand new day.

 

Yesterday's are over

Even though the hurting's not

Nothing lasts forever

I must cherish what I've got.

 

Don't take my love for granted,

For soon it will be gone-

All you ever wanted

Of the love you thought you'd won.
