Forever Fur Friends
This post is a dedication to the many friends who have recently lost a fur or feather friends to the rainbow bridge.
As difficult as it may seem right now, I hope your hearts can heal enough for you to only remember the good times and the funny times, the times they just knew, the endearing times the special moments you keep in your heart.
Much Love, and kind thoughts go to Hans and Rufus; Katherine and Tao; Michelle who lost her Dexter to a snake bite this past weekend; also to my friends at their one and two month anniversaries, my heart is with you all.
MY FOREVER PET
There’s something missing in my
I feel it day and night,
I know it will take time and
before things feel quite right.
But just for now, I need
My heart — it needs to mend.
Though some may say, “It’s
just a pet,”
I know I’ve lost a friend.
You’ve brought such laughter to my home,
and richness to my days.
A constant friend
through joy or loss
with gentle, loving ways.
A friend I won’t forget.
You’ll live forever in my
My sweet, forever pet.

I stood by your bed last night;
I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying you found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
“It’s me, I haven’t left you, I’m well, I’m fine, I’m here.”
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.
I was with you at the shops today; your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.
I was with you at my grave today; you tend it with such care.
I want to re-assure you, that I’m not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you; I smiled and said, “it’s me.”
You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It’s possible for me, to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, “I never went away.”
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew…
in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
The day is over… I smile and watch you yawning
and say “good-night, God bless, I’ll see you in the morning.”
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I’ll rush across to greet you and we’ll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out…then come home to be with me.
