I can't believe even tonight, that Patches is really gone. After only 15 months with me, he surely snuggled deep in my heart. I've been at this website on-and-off since January, 2007...when my dear angel Dusty passed away... About 5 months ago, I wrote a poem for someone I'd previously met here at the site, who most recently had lost her 3 year old dog... The poem I wrote, was written with the theme that, though his life was short, it was filled with love, and also with the idea that, as a young pet in Heaven, perhaps he is used to greet young children who cross to Heaven without their parents. The children are all alone, and just maybe, they get greeted by our kittens, puppies, and young pets who have crossed over from here, as what better greeting for a child in heaven, but a puppy or kitten's caress...
Sweet Codee's Love
In 3 years time, sweet Codee knew o'er a decade's worth of love
And in return, he'll shine it back to you from up above.
Like walks you took along the lake with Codee's head held high,
He proudly walks at Rainbow's bridge, with angels by his side
Perhaps your dear young Codee now greets children at the gate
who pass to Heaven all alone, they too at early age.
As Codee greets small children with a gentle loving kiss
he helps them softly settle into their own Heavenly bliss.
How sad he left your loving side so soon from here below;
But one thing that your gentle heart will surely always know:
You filled his life abundantly with love unendingly
That love he carries now with him through all eternity.
The reason I post this now, is I felt a nudge this morning to re-read this poem, written for someone else, but somehow...the words...came full circle, and have given me comfort, too...
Thank you, Tricia, for your beautiful words of support...
