I found this poem and it pretty much is how we found each other 3 years ago:
I found a Kitten
At the city pound,
A tiny creature
My hands wrapped around.
I held it up
Against my cheek,
And I could feel
Its wild heart beat.
It touched me
With its icy nose,
We liked each other
From head to toes.
There are two more-I think they fit too:
MEMBER OF THE FAMILY-Hope Harrington Kolb
What would I do without you
My precious, furry friend?
Part mischief, but all blessing
And faithful to the end
You look at me with eyes of love;
You never hold a grudge..
You think I'm far too wonderful
To criticize or judge
It seems your greatest joy in life
Is being close to me...
I think God knew how comforting
Your warm, soft fur would be.
I know you think you're human,
But I'm glad it isn't true...
The world would be a nicer place
If folks were more like you.
A few short years are all we have;
One day we'll have to part...
But you, my pet, will always have
A place within my heart.
WHO SAYS THERE ARE NO ANGELS?-Thomas M. Mohr
Have we ever stopped to wonder
Throughout our life long trip
Why we meet certain pets
Just once and then.............
Then they're gone as if in to Heaven
No more do they grace our door
Yet an inspiration lingers
It's there forevermore.
These pets were such blessings
They're here and then they're gone
They embraced our lives immensely
For short periods, not for long.
It hurts to see them gone
But there's beauty all the more
We shared a moment of glory
And the memories will long endure.
But the effect is forever
They've helped us on our way
Could they be our guiding angels
That God gave to us one day?
I didn't think today would be so hard Indy, but I am a teary eyed, red-faced mess. I miss you and love you.
