Little Girl

On the rainy Sunday morning of January 11, I lost my beautiful baby girl, Little Girl. Sure she was in her teens, but she was always a baby to me. So gentle, a soft sweet meow, and wanted nothing more than to be loved.

Her health was fading quickly. Medications were not helping. And on Sunday morning, she woke us with painful wails. I thought we were losing her right there. But she held on. We then made the excruciating decision to take her to the vet and that we may not bring her home.

And I believe that's what she wanted. Though she could barely stand or walk on her own, she forced herself up and stumbled over to the carrier. She knew it was time. We were the ones who just couldn't accept that.

Joe held her in his lap in the dim light of a grieving room and we cried and said our goodbyes as she slowly went to sleep.

No more greetings at the door. No more spins and high-fives for treats. No more belly scratches, or being kicked out of bed in the morning because she wants the blankets. Just the memories. I can only hope Dante welcomed her warmly and is showing her the ropes, prepping for when we meet again.

They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.
