aw...i'm sorry--that's so sad.

i lost my little dog twelve weeks ago--and the sadness and grief has been tremendous. i wrote about it in the bereavement group (http://www.democraticunderground.com/1234673)

i found a few sympathy poems (or excerpts) that may help in your hours of grief. again--i'm really sorry. it definately takes time to recover from our partings with those we love.

"And if I go while you’re still here… know that I live on, vibrating to a different measure -behind a veil you cannot see through. You will not see me, so you must have faith. I wait for the time when we can soar together again -both aware of each other. Until then, live your life to its fullest. And when you need me, just whisper my name in your heart, …I will be there."
--poem entitled ‘Ascension’ by Colleen Hitchcock

“Warm Summer sun
Shine Kindly Here,
Warm Southern Wind,
Blow Softly Here.
Green Sod Above,
Lie Light, Lie Light--
Good Night, Dear Heart,
Good Night, Good Night.”
--excerpt from a poem written by Robert Richardson, titled ‘Annette’

"I could sail the waters of all the world, bitter and wild and blue and never find a friend to love like the friend I’ve found in you. I could walk down all the roads of the world and knock on the doors forever and never I’d find a friend like you, Never, Never, Never."
--attributed to a poem entitled “A Poem by My Brother Robert” and is an excerpt from The Book of Sunshine, published in Doolin County Claire, Ireland in 1977 by PRF Brown

"Do Believe I’ll Never Leave you, Always I’ll Be In Your Heart. Don’t Forget My Soul Is Near You And So We’ll Never Be Apart"
--poem “Do Believe I’ll Never Leave You” by Nicholas Gordon.

"Some People Come Into Our Lives And Quickly Go. Some People Move Our Souls To Dance. They Awaken Us To New Understanding With The Passing Whisper Of Their Wisdom. Some People Make The Sky More Beautiful To Gaze Upon. They Stay In Our Lives For Awhile, Leave Footprints On Our Hearts And We Are Never, Ever The Same. "
--modified quotation of the poem “Some People” by author Flavia Weedn from her book To Take Away The Hurt.
