For those of you who've lost your pets
Ah was talking to some people about our mutual pet's deaths. Not appropriate to pos this there, but I know at least one of you I was posting with felt guilty about having to make the decision to end your pet's life. I did too sooo much so I wanted to share this poem it's not the greatest but from the heart. Just thought the part about letting go of the guilt might make you feel so not alone.I uploaded some pics to my album of my Shelli cat. The one on her back in on her memorial urn [for lack of a better term]. I find I have a big problem saying her 'box.' It is a wooden box but it's not it's so much more. Still, i skirt around the word. Anyways:Goodnight, My AngelPlease don?t think,I broke my promise;I loved you best,While you were here.My angel sent from heaven,Who loved me so much.You gave me pleasure each and every day,In immeasurable ways.My sweetie pie,That I had to send on her wayThis very day.Goodnight, my angelNow it?s time to sleep;Without pain or misery.At an end finallyYour earthly suffering.I found the strength at last to say goodbye;To send you peacefully on your wayHome in the sky.When you get to Heaven, please say helloTo Billy Joe.Oh, and also greet:Webster, Baby, Buffy, Bridget, Fantine,Missy, Boo, Lugar, Petey, Abby, Sophie,Mr. Roo Roo, Mr. Siamese, Kozaar,Mr. White (remember he?s new too.)At least you won?t be lonelyWhile you wait for me.Patiently.Would you visit Dad while you?re there, too, Shells?He knows what it?s like to lose a belovedFamily member.You could talk about your momma,And he, his daughters.Oh! And Betty is there too,With Missy and Chelsea;She?d be so happy to see you.And Evelyn as well;She never met a cat she didn?t love.All these great people, all these special animals--You lucky cat you!But now it?s time to say goodnightMy angel;Enjoy your days free from pain.Remember we?ll be together again,Someday.
