thank you dal cuore

To all who took time to leave heartfelt messages here on the loss of my much loved boy Bu.
i would like to express my sincere appreciation for your very kind thoughts, i embrace them.

life here will never be the same without my Bu

16 years and 8 months ago i fell in love with this tiny little bundle of fluff.

Yesterday, Thursday 15 October, 2009

i lost the love of my life.

His spirit wanted to stay, and he fought really hard but his body couldn’t take anymore.

He tried waiting for me and i only missed him by moments.

i craddled him in my arms for hours
i wanted never to leave him

Today is my first day i need to learn to be without him.

do you really see me?

in the movement of tall dry grass
as leaves fall from trees
in the dust as it fills the air
it whispers as it passes you by
you will know i am here
for you will breathe my breath
look into my eyes
open for a short while
and you will see the movement
sweeping over plains

shifting sand

leaving this place

will you know i was here?

do you really see me?
