See you later.

I thought it might be a good idea to start a thread like this. We all have so many things that we would like to share and maybe having them in one place may make it easier for all of us.

All of your friends on earth will miss you so very much, Simba. But, we'll make sure to tell them that we're all going to take such good care of you till they are reunited with you once again.


You're giving me a special gift,
So sorrowfully endowed,
And through these last few cherished days,
Your courage makes me proud.

But really, love is knowing
When your best friend is in pain,
And understanding earthly acts
Will only be in vain.

So looking deep into your eyes,
Beyond, into your soul,
I see in you the magic, that will
Once more make me whole.

The strength that you possess,
Is why I look to you today,
To do this thing that must be done,
For it's the only way.

That strength is why I've followed you,
And chose you as my friend,
And why I've loved you all these years...
My partner 'til the end.

Please, understand just what this gift,
You're giving, means to me,
It gives me back the strength I've lost,
And all my dignity.

You take a stand on my behalf,
For that is what friends do.
And know that what you do is right,
For I believe it too.

So one last time, I breathe your scent,
And through your hand I feel,
The courage that's within you,
To now grant me this appeal.

Cut the leash that holds me here,
Dear friend, and let me run,
Once more a strong and steady cat,
My pain and struggle done.

And don't despair my passing,
For I won't be far away,
Forever here, within your heart,
And memory I'll stay.

I'll be there watching over you,
Your forever friend,
And in your memories I'll run, ...
A young cat once again.

This is a wonderful idea Lacey. Mommie's favorite poem is still the one that she put on my page. I hope it will touch Simba's family, the way it did my Mommie:

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 your memory and so very 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.

That is what our parents do for us when they help us cross to the Bridge. They give us Peace. It is very hard for them to go through, but it is a very special gift of love.

You can shed tears that she is gone,
or you can smile because she lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that
she will come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all
the memories that she left.
Your heart can be empty because you
cannot see her,
Or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and
live for yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because
of yesterday.
You can remember her and only that she is gone,
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can do what she would want : smile, open your eyes,
love and go on.

Dear Mom,

"I am just about to take a nap,
for I have been running free.
I was chasing butterflies, and one small bumble bee.
I have rolled around in catnip,
I have climbed high in a tree -
And now I will rest all cuddled up with others just like me.
I am in a truly lovely place.
it is right by Heavens gate.
I am not alone, and I am told this is the place to wait.
I have told everyone about you, they said you will not be late.
That though on earth long years will pass, I will meet you by the gate.
There is a bridge we will cross together~
It has a rainbow hue - And really it is so pretty here, that all I miss is you.
So please do not think about the things you did or did not do -
It was my time to find the bridge, so please do not feel blue.
I am sorry that I left so fast, with just a kiss good-bye
But I have enclosed a -head butt- and a slow blink of my eye.
Take care of all my family and tell them that I will try to be the one that greets them first, when they come~ by and by.
I love you and thanks for being such a great mom"

The vet gave this to my Mama the day she had to let me go.

The years I've worn you,
warm upon my shoulder,
ended here......
surprised to find us older.

And there was nothing
left to do today
but hold you close
and help you on your way.

Be still, my little cat,
Be well; be free.
I know that you're somewhere near
and loving me.

beautif ul boy

A friend sent this to me the day Poppet left me and went to the Bridge.

"Weep not for me though I am gone
Into the gentle night
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul's sweet flight

I am at peace, my soul's at rest
There is no need for tears
for with your love, I was truly blessed
for all those many years

There is no pain, I suffer not
The fear now all is gone
Put now these things out of your thoughts
In your memory I live on

Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife
Please do not dwell upon my death
But celebrate my life"

It helped a little at the time, but all I wanted to do was hold him in my arms again. Jen will feel the same, but it does get a little easier but the longing for them never goes away.

I will lend to you for a while, a kitty, God said.
For you to love her while she lives and mourn for her when she's dead.

Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or maybe two or three,
but will you, 'till I call her back, take care of her for me.

She'll bring her charms to gladden you and (should her stay be brief),
you'll always have her memories as solace for your grief.

I cannot promise she will stay, since all from earth return,
but there are lessons taught below I want this kitty to learn.

I've looked the whole world over in search of teachers true,
and from the folk that crowd life's land, I have chosen you.

Now will you give her all your love, nor think the labor vain,
nor hate me when I come to take my kitty back again.

I fancied that I heard them say "Dear Lord Thy Will be Done",
for all the joys Ms. Kitty will bring, the risk of grief we'll run.

We'll shelter her with tenderness, we'll lover her while we may,
and for the happiness we've known forever grateful stay.

But should you call her back much sooner than we've planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand

If, by our love, we've managed, your wishes to achieve,
In memory of her we loved, to help us while we grieve,

When our faithful bundle departs this world of strife,
We'll have yet another kitty and love her all her life

Warm light coming from far below
Twinkling, sparkling is the candle's glow
All is well up on the ridge
The place we know as Rainbow Bridge

Loved ones sleeping in heaven's light
Tended by candles in the night
Peaceful dreams be theirs to keep
As they slumber in this night so deep

Hearts on earth that miss them so
Take comfort in the candle's glow
Watching for them in skies above
We are bound eternally by love

My heart is true
Purred: Fri May 23, '08 11:38am PST 
They say memories are golden,
well, maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories, I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
in death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.
