Dearest Momma, |
When I am gone, let me go,
I gave you my love, and you can only guess, how much you've given me in happiness. I thank you for the love that you have shown, but now it is time I traveled on alone.
So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must, then let your grief be comforted by trust, that it is only for a while that we must part, so treasure the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away for life goes on. And if you need me, call and I will come. Though you can't see or touch me, I will be near. And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear all my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you come this way alone, I'll greet you with a smile and a "welcome home".
-all my love your furangel India
P.s. I've so many good friends who give me head bumps and kisses and Chase butterflies with me. Prissy and River and Isabel too! Don't worry momma I'm not alone and I am here watching over you from the Meadows of rainbow bridge sending my love to you on butterflies wings and kisses on the winds waiting for you to come home.
I remember a couple of days before you died when I knew it was coming, that I had such precious time left with you. I'd lay in the basement next to your bed and I'd sob and tears were pouring down my face.
You always knew when I was sad and you were always there always comforted me in your own way. And this time it was as if you knew I was grieving for you. So as I lay there on the cold floor next to your bed you got up and I saw a paw at the edge of my vision. I remember thinking oh God she's gonna hit me. Indy is gonna do her bitchy thing as if to tell me I'm annoying and that I'm hurting her ears so I should stop crying.
But all I felt was a gentle sweep of a paw across my cheek wiping away a tear that was falling from my eyes. And I looked at her and she looked at me my soul and all as if to say "it's going to be ok don't grieve for me, I forgive you, please don't be sad, don't cry. I'm still here and I'm with you."
And at that moment I knew that you were never just a cat, werent ever just a pet, you were my family, my truest friend in life who always stood by my side and watched me grow. You may not have spoke the same language as me but your soul was every bit as human. Thank you my friend for loving me through so many years. I will never forget the love and companionship and humanity you showed me. I will love you always and you are always with me. I love you my friend and I will see you someday when my time comes. All my love India, Momma
