I Remember

I rember when....You were here.

As I sit in those moments of quiet,
When sadness invades me,
I know that yesterday,
You were here.

Now you are away from us,
Not knowing your future,
Or when you'll come home, but yesterday,
You were here.

It has now been a week,
A week since you last were in the house,
An entire week since Fate carried you away,
To the place where we did not know your future,
But just last week,
You were here.

Another day passes;
a week ago, you were still with us,
We do not know your future
But we could still hope, and,
You were here.

More days pass,;
A week ago you left us,
I can’t even remember if I told you I loved you
But for a few hours of that day,
You were here.

Sadness invades again,
As I know that once those hours pass,
I can no longer look back,
Over the span of a familiar week's time,
To find that comforting point when,
You were here.

More time will pass;
Sadness will not so much invade as menace,
And I will mark the days,
Saying things like,
"last month, last summer, last Halloween, last year,"
You were here.

I dread that day,
One year from now,
That first marking of the time,
That your presence was no longer with us;
Though we will never forget you,
Your tangible memory fades,
The feel of your fur, your head, your back, your weight against us,
The smell and sounds of you when,
You were here.

The emptiness is beginning to fade,
To change into another reality,
One with you still playing a part,
But a role of ethereal presence rather than physical comfort we crave;
Your memory, your spirit, your essence and counsel,
Dwell with us, but this feeling is not the same as when,
You were here.

Beautiful poem ... mommy has tears in her eyes, she knows all those feelings so well ... her biggest fear is forgetting but I keep whispering to her heart that you can never forget love. Rainbow hugs ~ Ralphie.

Dear Daisy and Buddy, I am saddened that you both went to the bridge in such a short time. Please send angel dust on your family to warm their hearts and keep their hearts and minds intune with the pure love you brought them'.
As Helen Keller said of her own doggie, "What we have once enjoyed~ we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us."
In this Christmas season I will remember you and your family in my prayers of healing and renewal. Paws&Hugs, Bentley and Family, (Joellen)
