A sad time......

Two weeks ago was a year since I lost My sweet Reaga, I was struggling with this day as I never have quite come to terms with it. The next day the unthinkable happened, my beautiful cat, who has lived here 15 years, was hit by a car and left dead. This has hit both me and Jay very hard, and I only now feel able to post something about it because of Bernadette's horrendous pain and sadness she is going through. I found this poem and want to post it in memory of Queenie, Reaga and the beautiful Hex....I know that god had more important things for you to all do, but we all miss you terribly.... Run free and be happy

I'm Still Here

Friend, please don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I'll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach-
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.

I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.

When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, friend, I'm everyplace!

It's all just way to sad isn't it. I hate this time of year. Two years ago I lost Spud and three years ago I lost Mika, both on the same day just a year apart. The memories are great but it just aint the same. But I look at Jag and Twix and smile and give them a huge hug. It does help.

See ya soon.
