Faithful friend, where are you now? Running and playing, freedom abounds. Companion of my soul, love of my heart. The day came too soon, when we had to part.
My throat is filled with sobs, my eyes filled with tears. Your earthly life has slipped away, confirming my fears. I hold tight to your memory as your soul makes the journey. The bitter agony of your loss continues to consume me.
Memories of you replenish my hope, you suggest to me how I can cope. "By taking another into your heart, you strengthen that of which I was a part" Thank you, sweet kitty, for the advice and your care. Now I know you are at peace, watching me from somewhere.
Close up of Piggy above the shower.
Piggy about a month or two before she crossed to the Rainbow Bridge. The spider was her favorite toy. When she got sick she wouldn't play with it anymore, she would just chew on it occasionally when we would get it out.
Poor Piggy got soooo skinny! I miss her!
I gasp for air and claw at the walls
Trying to make the pain stop as I continue to fall
Deeper into despair, no hope or belief
Will I ever again feel any relief
The world is so dark, I feel so cold
It is your warm, furry body I yearn to hold
My body, it aches, my mind is so numb
Nothing else matters, since your death has come
The sun does not shine on my tear streaked face
Sobs fill the air, sorrow and fury all that I taste
We will meet again, I know that in my heart
But the grief is so overwhelming I'm falling apart.
Written for CatladyDi after Fluffy died.
I remembered how I felt the first few days after Piggy died.
