January 1, 2015-For my Pedro, Another year has gone by without you by my side. It is coming up to three years since you went to Rainbows Bridge. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. I printed everything I wrote to you up to now and today, a new year and coming up to your anniversary, I am starting anew. As always, I am sending you all my love via angel airmail. A little bit of me went with you and maybe, if at all possible, one day we will be together again for ever and always. I am starting this page with several poems which can better express how I feel about losing you.
ALONG THE ROAD by Robert Browning Hamilton
I WALKED A MILE WITH PLEASURE
SHE CHATTERED ALL THE WAY;
BUT LEFT ME NONE THE WISER,
FOR ALL SHE HAD TO SAY.
I WALKED A MILE WITH SORROW,
AND NE'ER A WORD SAID SHE;
BUT, OH, THE THINGS I LEARNED FROM HER
WHEN SORROW WALKED WITH ME!
Pawprints Left By You
You no longer greet me, as I walk through the door.
You're not there to make me smile, to make me laugh anymore.
Life seems quiet without you, you were far more than a pet.
You were a family member, a friend,
.....A living soul I'll never forget.....
It will take time to heal - for the silence to go away.
I still listen for you, and miss you every day.
You were such a great companion, constant, loyal, true.
My heart will always wear,
THE PAWPRINTS LEFT BY YOU.
Do Not Stand at my grave
Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.
More to come my darling baby boy. Meanwhile lots of hugs and kisses from Your Mommy.
January 5, 2015-For my very special baby boy Pedro on his third anniversary crossing the Rainbows Bridge, I am adding two poems that say it better than I ever could. Miss you every single day and will love you forever and always. Your Mommy.
I Haven't Left At All
I saw you gently weeping as you looked through photographs
You paused for just a moment at one that made you laugh;
But as you turned more pages the tears began to flow
You whispered that you missed me but I want you to know;
I softly licked those stinging tears that down your cheeks did fall
I want to help you understand I haven't left at all.
On those days that you are overcome with sorrow, pain and grief
I rest my head upon your leg to offer some relief.
When you take our walking path I've seen you turn around
Because I know you surely heard my paws upon the ground.
At night while you are sleeping I snuggle at your side
You stroke my fur as you touch that place where I used to lie.
You said it's just your heart playing tricks upon your mind
But rest assured I'm really there, my spirit's left behind.
I know your heart is hurting; it's like an open sore
You think my life has ended and you won't see me anymore.
But for those of us bound tight by love, death is not the curtain call;
It's really the eternal beginning that waits for us all
So, dear Master as you live your life I patiently await
For us to be together when you pass through Heaven's gate.
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 else can 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.
So my precious puppy. Wait for me and one day I too will cross that bridge and we will be together forever and ever. Love you so much, Your Mommy.
January 9, 2015-For my sweet and precious baby boy I am sending very special love. Just thinking about you today and missing you as always. I am sure you are busy playing in the meadows on the other side of Rainbows Bridge with all your other furbaby friends. Still I hope you will have some time to look down, once in awhile, so you can see your Mommy looking up at you. Love you very very much. From your Mommy.
January 15, 2015 - Good morning again to my very special little boy. Mommy is visiting you today because she loves you so much and misses you every single minute of every single day. Thinking of you always and forever. I hope you are busy having fun with all your furbaby friends. Don't forget to help the newcomers get settled in. I imagine where you are it is always Spring with lots of beautiful sunshine and meadows covered with beautiful wild flowers. Here my darling it is winter with rain and cold. I remember how you used to snuggle under the blankets in the winter. I miss that so much. Sending you a huge amount of Mommy hugs and kisses. I'll write again next week. LOVE YOU SO MUCH. Your Mommy.
January 22, 2015-To Pedro my very special little man I am sending you today's huge portion of love, hugs and kisses. Just so you know that not a day goes by when I don't think of you. Missing you now and forever. Now go and play with all the other furbabies in the meadows across the Rainbows Bridge. One day I too will come to the bridge and you will meet me and help me cross over. Then we can be together for always. Pedro don't forget to give Kippy a special hug and kiss from her Mommy. She is missed very much too. Love you both. Until next week my darling baby boy. LOVE YOU. From your Mommy.
