My sweet girl is gone

She died at home in my arms on July 15.

Sun Girl

My lap is too too empty, and cold
the soft resting head no longer there to warm it.
No comfort to be found, no furry body to stroke
my quiet companion gone . . . .

My heart is broken, there are no other words
to write it - this empty ache, this space
you filled, loving always, never judging . . .
My friend has left, and my hands, arms, all
helpless to stop it.

Little one, fly free, where the fields are green
and filled with friends gone before. I will
carry you always, your pawprints ever beating,
running joyously to greet me whenever I call
and memory stirs in my heart...

It never seems adequate to say "I'm sorry" yet that's the only thing I can think to say right now. I'm so very sorry and you are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. If there's anything I can do, you know I'm here for you.

OMG, I am so very sorry. I can only hope that the memories can help fill that empty spot. It will always be there, but hopefully with time, the remembered joys will just be a tiny bit bigger than the feeling of loss.
