The time has come for you to free yourself
from the encapsulate place that we see as you...
your being has brought me joy,
made me feel loved
and will so deeply be missed.
from the depths of my soul
knowing that you will be at my side no longer
yet I know that it is time to let you go.
What you gave to me...
in our time together
will live on
and I will be touched by the memories,
that will frequent my thoughts.
I love you
as a friend
and a soul mate.
Take my warmth with you
as you begin your new journey.
As your energy floats through the sky
and glistens in the stars
I will look for you
and pretend that the light I see
beckoning in the black of night,
winking and smiling
telling me that you are in a better place
and that you are well.
you see me
as you go,
know that my tears are for my loss
and for what we will no longer have.
I know that
you will fly freely among the loved.
Your eyes seem sad,
and so far
making me aware
that I have been keeping you here beside me
to buy precious time,
and to come to terms
with all of the emotions that stab at my heart .
I will keep you here in my soul.
I will treasure the faithfulness.
I will think of you
You are special
You are unique.
You are loved.
You need to go now to be comfortable and to be safe
Good Bye my pet...be at peace.
