As I Watch You Sleeping

As I watch you sleeping
my problems seem so small.
The rewards you have to offer me
are so big and so tall.

As I watch you sleeping
I realize just how great your accomplishments are.
I know how much you struggle
to have made it this far.

As I watch you sleeping
I can't imagine how my life would be without you.
Even through the hard times
I'd be lost without you.



As I watch you sleeping,
I see just how much you have brought into my life.
All the joys and happiness
all the wonder and excitement.

As I watch you sleeping
I am overcome with such love.
Your sweetness and happiness
are something I can't get enough of.

As I watch you sleeping
I think just how lucky I am.
To be the mother of such
a beautiful little boy.

As I watch you sleeping
all of my worries seem to melt away.
I know that no matter what happens
together we can make it through another day.

Hi everyone,

I do not have too much to say right now, except to thank everyone for their continued outpouring of love and support for Lisa and Wyatt and the rest of our family.  Through the visitations and funeral service, it became very evident the number of lives that Wyatt has touched in his short life.  It was absolutely amazing the people that came out, sent messages, calls, emails, you name it. We of course knew, and have known for a long time, how special and loved Wyatt was by us, but it became very clear how loved he was by so many that we don't even know.

The visitations and service went beautifully, and the service was an amazing tribute to Wyatt.  We would like to thank those who spoke at the service, Dr Schwartz, Susan, Ashleigh, Cortney, Sean, Eric,  myself and my Dad.  A big thank you to Michael, the Chaplin who did the service, who truly took time from a crazy schedule, to come and do this for Wyatt and Lisa.  He did a fantastic job at touching on what Wyatt's life was all about.  For those who don't know, it was very special to us that Michael did the service, because Michael is the Chaplin from SickKids, and knows Wyatt and Lisa very well.  It was important to have him, as no one else would have known Wyatt on a personal level, like Michael does. 

We were just amazed at the number of staff who came from SickKids, and it sounds funny, but I truly wonder who staffed the CCCU that day, because I think most of them were at the service.  It was amazing to see that Wyatt was not only loved by us, "his family", but also truly by his family at SickKids.  And that they truly were, and are, a part of his family, our family now, because of Wyatt. 

Thank you to the staff at Mount Lawn Memorial Gardens, who guided us in arranging things, put up with my 600 phone calls and questions, allowed Lisa to spend more time with Wyatt, and for keeping things running smoothly.

The obituary was published in Wednesdays paper, but I cannot find it online, so I thought I would put it here for anyone who has not seen it and would like to.

There was an adorable picture of Wyatt with it, I am working on getting that on here :(

CELSIE - SWANTON, Wyatt (April 27, 2007 - May 16, 2009)

On Saturday May 16, 2009 at 6:56pm, our brave handsome hero passed away peacefully in his Mummy's arms at SickKids Hospital, surrounded by those who love him.  Wyatt, loving son of Lisa Celsie, Loved Grandson of Roni (Doug), Blaine (Karen).  Cherished Nephew of Laura (John), Colin, Andrew, Amy (Joe).  Dear Cousin of Sean, Eric, Gabriella and Nolan.  Wyatt will be lovingly remembered by his extended family, and all the hearts that he touched.  Wyatt, a true warrior, will fondly be remembered for his strength, bravery, will, and by his beautiful smile, his love of bubble baths, movies, sweets, playing stinky feet and doing things his way.  Funeral Services were held at Mount Lawn Reception Center, 21 Garrard Road, Whitby, 904 443 3376.  In memory of Wyatt, donations to the SickKids CCCU would be appreciated.         

"Love is not written on paper, for paper can be erased. Nor is it etched on a stone, for a stone can be broken. But it is inscribed on a heart, and there it shall remain forever."
