"Our Sweet Roxie went to the Bridge on Friday, and my way of coping with the loss is by writing about it...I would like to share my poem to Roxie with you.
My precious little Roxie,
Called to the Bridge, this day;
God needed one sweet angel,
And took my girl away.
He took part of the sunshine,
That brightens up my day;
He left me with an emptiness,
So cold and dank and gray.
I know you suffered, Roxie,
And He knows what is best;
He takes you from your misery,
That in peace your soul may rest.
I held you gently on my lap,
And smelled your soft sweet fur;
I listened for, but never heard,
Your gentle soothing purr.
I listened for your heartbeat,
As your life began to slip;
And whispered...soft..."I love you"
And sent you on your trip.
" Go toward the light", I whispered
"There is a rainbow, there;
And you will have a happy time,
Pain-free, and without a care."
"This is where you wait for me,
Until I come to you;
Together we will cross the Bridge;
Friends forever, through and through.""
Written by Lucy Lou, a pawtner in poetry @ the Pet Poetry Group who lost her sister Roxie recently. This is what she wrote in Roxie's Memory. A heartfelt tribute, to say the least!! R.I.P. Roxie girl! xo
