|Goodbye my little Friend
(Written December 2010)
Two months after losing my little hero, tears stream down my face as I write this, the memorial to my little Buddy that I always knew was coming, but prayed that it never would. All these months later and the grief of his leaving remains overwhelming; I made him promise he would never leave, but even he could not keep that promise. My heart is broken and I have no way to make it whole again.
My hero, my little friend, the greatest soul that I have ever known, has left this earth. No eyes shall ever look at me again as did his. He had the courage and the heart of a lion, but it was that big heart that finally gave out at 7 AM on 12 October 2010, the saddest day of my life.
He knew I was with him and could feel my hand on his chest as he slipped away; I know that gave him comfort as he knew that while I was at his side, he was safe, but I could not stop the march of time. Part of me died that day too, and I will never be exactly the same inside.
