warranted and understood
Wagging tails and ragged purrs
A fondness to form
Staying for moments
ending far too soon
Lives forever changed
And sent ahead with love
Memories of joy undimmed.
Each a blessing beyond measure.
Fallen and yet to fall
Sinking into fur warm and soft
A big tongue to wipe them away.
Peace found in peace given.
The most loving act
most painful still
the giving back a freedom
to play without reserve
love forever carried.
Peace is found
in giving peace
There is no more pain
No more uncertainty
More than worthy of this kindness
Rest in peace, my beloved Phia.
Rest in peace, my precious Pudders.
Come snuggle with me tonight and every night to come. I will miss your physical presence and grateful that your spirits will be with me always, all ways.
I love you both. You will always be mine.
*yesterday, May 5, 2013, Pudders passed from this world and is waiting for us on the rainbow bridge until it is our time. Dan (my husband dear) rescued her 19 years ago from a farmer who was ready to end her life. The life she gave us was beyond expectations…
Today, May 6, 2013 we released our 13 year old dog Ophelia Jane from her well worn body. We thought that we were losing her a full year ago. She rallied and healed. I know now- She stayed with us until she knew we were safe. The cancer had come back and stopped her digestive system from working properly. She was in far too much pain and discomfort. Although it was painful for us, her physical pain was more so we did the most loving thing we could. I held her head in my lap as she slipped away. I am sad but grateful for every moment together.
with Love, Light and Blessings….
