An Angel's Notes for the Day

Another original poem by my mom. This is for you Eva.

Mom wrote this originally when her brother-in-law of almost 40 years passed away. But this poem belongs to everyone who still feels the endless pit of grief and despair at the passing of our little furry bodies. Mom doesn't pretend to have the answers or even feel peace about it. But she tries hard to remember we are souls with bodies and not the other way around.

So I'm posting this for Alfie's mom Eva. Because Alfie's anniversary is coming up and she's hurting and she's a WONDERFUL and loving friend to all of us here. Especially my family.

I Am Alive

I am alive
In More ways than one
I am bright and glorious
Just like the sun

I am so alive
In every way
I’m in the bird’s song
At the start of the day

I’m alive in your heart
Can you feel me there?
I live in the flowers,
The water, the air

I’m alive in your mind
In memories abound
Don’t think of me lost
Remember I’m found

I’m forever alive
My precious soul
Knows not of death
Only the eternal bond that we hold



There is no end in nature, but every end is a beginning, and under every deep a lower deep opens.

-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

It's so easy for us here at the bridge to forget we ever hurt that badly. But it's unfortunately stuck in our pawents minds. But just like me, none of you are gone or absent from your parent's lives. You are there, they just can't see you. Energy does not die, it only transforms.

Lisa, thank you. You are very sweet.
That is just beautiful.
I love the line: "bright and glorious just like the sun."
My Alfie was my sunshine boy. His fur was such an amazing orange..I know he is "transformed" and that he lives on in my heart. It amazes how many catster friend remember him with love....
I miss his silky little body in my arms.It's hard to accept that in this life, I will never see him again.

We humans live with the 5 senses and NEED them to be able to appreciate this plane of existence. That's the big problem with being separated from our loved ones. We can't touch and feel them. That in itself is torture. For me too.

We love Auntie Eva!! We feel sad that she is hurting. I hope this might help her feel a bit better. Very nice poem, and thoughtful to post this for her (and for others who are feeling the pain of loss).
