In loving memory, my Shadow
As I sat beside you on your final day of life. I watch as your spirit vanished like the sun at dusk. In that moment I am reminded of the love you gave, of a life made richer by your being in it. Your eyes seemed to say it is OK. I am at peace now. Those kind green eyes speak of comforting me, even as your last breath escapes your silent lips. Oh, dear friend you teach me humility, unconditional acceptance of what is and must be. I can feel your gratitude fill me. And I too will find comfort and peace.
I say a sad and heartfelt goodbye to a beautiful spirit and friend. My kitty Shadow passed on today. I am grateful for the time we shared on this earth together.
