  21. For Gypsy!

    We have a secret, you and I that no one else shall know,
    for who but I could see you lie
    each night in fire glow?
    And who but I could reach my hand
    before we went to bed
    and feel the living warmth of you
    and touch your silken head?
    And only I walk woodland paths
    and see ahead of me,
    your small form racing with the wind so young again, and free.

    best
    F

  31. When you're ready, take out the photos and laugh and weep afresh at the memories you shared. I've found it's the only way to accept the travelling on of a true and trusted friend. It never gets easier . . .

  39. Oh, I'm so sorry for the loss of your kitty. UGH, my heart aches for you becuase I've lost pets and it truly is devastating...these little creatures are so much a part of our lives. My heart is sad for you and lifting you up in prayers and thoughts.

    ReplyDelete
  40. So sorry, bro. I'll have a drink tonight to lost pets and think of you and Gypsy. I read your later post first and was wondering if I missed something. I see now that I did miss something.

    We lost our Golden in 2009 to cancer, held her as she died at the vet. I even thought the vet might cry.

    The kids and I still pray every night: And God, please throw the ball for Lexi, in a lake because she likes to swim. Amen.

    I doubt they'll pray that long for me when I'm gone!

  41. I'm so sorry for your loss, Roland. You and Gypsy are in my heart, my prayers, my thoughts.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Eric : I will pray that prayer for your Lexi, too.

    VR : Thank you. I am walking around with a hole in my heart.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh Roland, my heart is in my throat and it, too, has a hole in it. For it feels yours, my friend.

    My tears are yours. My grief is yours. My heaviness is yours.

    Oh that sharing such a heavy burden will somehow allay the oppressiveness of your own.

    I see you. And Gypsy. Separated by nothing but a thin veil.

    She walks with you still.

    You are loved out here in the blogosphere. Take that in. Let it give you solace in the middle of your loneliness and grief.

    Love, your sister/cousin/mother/brother, Olivia

  44. Roland I am so sorry for your loss. It's such a huge loss, a constant companion...one who never judges, one who is there to love and comfort you. Last May when I went through the same moment you went through I spent a couple weeks not functioning...I found a lot of cat bloggers and they helped me through my grief. I still miss Stripes everyday. I, like you, don't think there will ever be another cat for me. I don't think I can go through that love and hurt again. My thoughts and prayers are with you. (((HUGS))

    Thank you. You're right I believe. A part of her spirit still lives in my apartment. I "heard" her last night as I was writing emails thump from my bed to the floor.

    Instinctively, I looked but no Gypsy -- except in my heart and head -- and perhaps as a spirit keeping watch.

    Sharon :
    I am saddened to hear of Stripes. She seems to have been a kindred spirit to Gypsy's loving, caring companion.

    Thanks for the virtual hug. I needed it this evening, Roland

  46. Oh Roland, I'm so sorry to hear your beloved Gypsy is no longer with you. Such heartbreak to lose something we love.

    May time diminish the pain until you and Gypsy get to say 'hello' once again.
