THIS POEM IS FOR MY TALLULAH....AUTHOR UNKNOWN
Pawprints in my Heart
pet loss memorial poem
My lap is too too empty, and cold
the soft resting head no longer there to warm it.
No comfort to be found, no furry body to stroke
my quiet companion gone....
My heart is broken, there are no other words
to write it - this empty ache, this space
you filled, loving always, never judging...
My friend has left, and my hands, arms, all
helpless to stop it.
Little one, fly free, where the fields are green
and filled with friends gone before. I will
carry you always, your pawprints ever beating,
running joyously to greet me whenever I call
and memory stirs in my heart...
Yesterday when I was at a clients home outside in their backyard with it being hot the dog and I were outside...there was no wind it was still...all of a sudden the wind picked up their chimes chimed a beautiful sound, their dog was looking up and following something...at that moment I knew it was my Tallulah. The hair on my arms and neck stood up...she was there with me...
Then I had to take the little dog for a walk...I usually take her on her side of the street,just down the street from them on both sides is a wooded area...for some reason I decided to go across the street...when I got into the wooded area I saw a beautiful white butterfly with a very small amount of black....it circled around my head and then it kept circling the area I was in...I knew it was my angel Tallulah...she was letting me know she was fine and she would be with me always in some form or another, maybe the butterfly, maybe the wind or even a little kitty kiss...she would never leave me alone...our bond so great it gave me peace to know she was able to show me such a beautiful butterfly and to show me it was OK...
Just wanted to let you all know this...it was amazing...it brought tears to my eyes again, but also a joy like none other...Fly free my sweet you deserve it...you were so brave and strong, you are so amazing....love you my angel...Mommy
What a beautiful poem and a beautiful experience with the butterfly and chimes. I agree it was Queen Tallulah, telling you she was okay and that she loves you and you both will be together again one day. She will always be with you and will be looking over you and her fur family. She is in no more pain, so healthy, endless sunshine, lots of food and lots of angel furriends to play with. We can't imagine all the beautiful things she is experiencing.

That QT takes her angel duties very seriously - she did a good job sending that butterfly to you!
My Lady is weeping with sadness and joy..she knows your pain well but also knows the feeling of comfort, those sweet gifts from our Angel babies, reaffirming that forever bond that is never broken...
Purrs and love
QT will always be with you.
Purrs & Love,
Such a Beautiful poem and nice story. Thanks for sharing both. Take care ♥
Thank you for sharing that poem and telling us of Queen Tallulah's angel signs.
I know those tears that it brought to your eyes ~ Tears, tinged with mournful missing, but touched by beauty and unending gratitude for having shared her life.
Yes most certainly our Meowmy thinks it a sign from Tallulah to tell you that all is as is should be, you should be at peace. (Meowmy is leaking now, gotta go.) XXXX.
Sending lots of purrs for you. And I do think it was a sign from QT!
Sending you lots of love and sad and happy purrs.
Yes, our special babies do reach out in ways to let us know they are okay. Learning about Tallulah's beautiful song on a breeze and the white butterfly dancing about in the warm summer air brought tears of joy to my eyes and warmed my heart.

I cry with you, my dear friend...the Queen is flying free now and watching over you and your family. She is there for you always. Do not be afraid to grieve, we grieve with you...we loved her also and will continue to do so...love never dies.

Butterflys are symbols of new life ~ The lovely Queen Tullulah now has a beautiful new life. kisses Anna
What a beautiful entry for a beautiful cat. Thank you so much for sharing it.
This brought tears to our eyes too.
I can tell Tallulah will never leave you alone - especially with the appearance of the white butterfly with the small amount of black. She's with you, I am sure. She had lead you in that direction for your walk. How wonderful it is that you know it was her!
That was her in the wind too and I'll bet you will feel her kitty kisses, or her brush up against you. You will likely visit with her in a dream or several.
She has let you know she is alright. She is flying as low as the butterfly will and as far and high as the wind can go. This is how the brave and the strong move through the universe.
I'm glad she and you were together again for this. It's something you never will forget. And yet she will return again!
God works in mysterious ways. We can only have faith to guide us through tough times. Tallulah will always be watching over you.
