A tribute to all of those we have lost.

A tribute to all of those we have lost. - 04/27/11 03:25 AM

My heart aches.

My eyes swollen from the never ending river of tears.

I am tired but can not sleep.

I should eat but I have no hunger.

I am just functioning, but my joy is gone.

I can sense you, but you are not here.

I miss the joy you brought to my life.

I miss the questioning tilt of your head.

I miss your joy of discovering some thing new.

I miss our quite time at the end of the day.

I miss the sound of your feet moving through the house.

I miss your utter joy of life.

I miss your devotion.

I miss those soft brown eyes.

If I could change that day I would.

If I could have you with me for the rest of my life I would.

Until we meet again my devoted friend.

Our community just said goodbye to a LEO peacekeeper...today's funeral was televised for several hours on two local stations. http://www.mlive.com/news/kalamazoo/index.ssf/2011/04/we_remember_him_thousands_hono.html

This poem closed out the emotional day. Thanks for sharing, Val.

I didn't plan to write it. The first line just wouldn't leave my mind, so I sat down and let it all just form and happen. The only other thing I wrote like this was a remembrance to Jean's Nina.

I appreciate the kind words, but I am not sure that I wasn't just picking up on everyone's pain and I just put it into words.

I heard DeeDee last night in the brilliant storm that crashed and played around our house. I guess she was thanking Val.

Val, I also thank you.

Sean passed away one year ago today. I've been trying to keep busy but can't help thinking about him just as I do every day. I wish I could have had him with me for the rest of my life. I miss you more than ever my special boy. teary

Sean is remembered by so many people.

I know today is difficult for you. The only thing that could be harder than losing our great dogs would be to never have had them in our lives.

For Sean and all who now live in our hearts... flowerbasket

How can it be a year? Sean remains with you in every warm act-every kind thought.

Bonnie captured all I can think now.

The first year really is different frown I know with both indy and max it took me about 14 months until things shifted towards a more positive direction.

Warm and wonderful memories of Sean, you guys were special together hugging

I can't believe it's been a year already myself. There are days I forget and think he is still with us.
Yes, Bonnie captured it perfectly. hug

Oh gosh Marlene, already a year. I know it's probably seemed like an eternity to you... Sean was a very special soul and we all miss him...
