wow tonight my mom just read this over on Facebook and it took her back to her last days with me. So many things here speak to her for it was exactly the way she felt.
Wobbly walks with whiskers frayed
Once bright eyes dimmed with weary days
Sink piled high with dirty dishes
Bottomless tears whisper desperate wishes
Curled round frail body through the night
Holding onto love with all my might
Pills and droppers and apologies
Weak paw protests my heart to bleed
Clean your fur and gentle caresses
Encourage relief - Ill clean your messes
I beg the universe, I curse the sky, luminous eyes look to me as in "why?"
I always had answers
Could always protect you
But now on the threshold
Of a life without you
Empty comforter of your sun streamed naps
Empty arms, empty laps
Crumbs of spooned meals in my bed
take the place where you lay your head
An entire year of slow tearing apart
Different sections of my heart
Little by little - battles lost and won
But even now some of you is gone
Forever- the word that burns with grief
Our deep bond cut short way too brief
On your journey a part of me goes your way.
My sad soul will never be the same.
Me-ow! Eyes are leaking . . .
Mommy is bawling. Every word is true.
Lovely - thanks fur sharing it with us.
yes. painfully and beautifully true.
