|After sweet Lola went to the Bridge, someone on Catster sent this poem... the last 4 lines are especially meaningful when I think of Lola.
Unlike the poem, we didn't have Lola with us for very long, and I've now grieved for her longer than she was physically with us. I know at some point I'll get past the tears when I think of her or look at her photos, but it's hard. I can now laugh when I remember all the funny and joyous things Lola did, but I still can't help crying that we couldn't give her the longer life I think she deserved... Lola loved life and people so much.
THE HARDEST CHOICE

How can I bear to lose you, my precious gentle one,
To know that you will not be here when my day is done?
So much of my heart, my love, have I given up to you,
How then can I stand the pain now that your life is through?
My sorrow overwhelms me, the tears so freely flow,
How can I carry on my life, with a heart that's laden so?
Then the answer comes to me from the stillness in my soul.
Remembering the love we shared will help to make me whole.
I'll hold you in a special place, so deep within my heart
And in these loving memories we'll never be apart.
You will not be so far away, your presence I will feel.
I'll wrap myself in memory and slowly I will heal.
The years we shared, the little joys, the laugher and the tears
My love for you will never die, but strengthen with the years
So fare you well, my precious love, I gently let you go
And pray to all the Gods there be that you will always know
I loved you so, my little one, that love will never cease
I gave you warmth, I gave you love, and now I give you peace.
