Wait for me at Rainbow Bridge

2015 04 18 My Rainbow bridge

On Thursday, my life changed forever.

My darling four-legged baby boy, an Australian kelpie named Jackson, left my arms for the last time.

With eyes closed and nose no longer wet, the epileptic seizures which had become a part of our lives for the past few years, finally took their toll.

There is a heartache to death which no one can heal.

Comforting words do little to soothe the pain of loss and emptiness.

Searching for those big brown eyes so full of love, I look to the door where you always sat.

Fresh tears slide down my cheeks as I struggle to accept there will be no more furry cuddles or wet kisses.

No more banging on my bedroom door at night, or howls for comfort in the early morning light.

I pick up your empty bowl,

My darling boy is really gone.

You have found the peace you deserve

but I am left wishing there was visiting hours at Rainbow Bridge.

Your mummy always; be it here in my memory or there within your  heart. xx

Rainbow-Bridge Poem

No credits for this one tonight. However I would like to express my gratitude to the creators of the HPMD, Happy Mood sim. Within it’s beautiful surrounds I have sought solace and found comfort these past few days.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I have experienced that more than once in my life and it is quite painful. Without the rainbow bridge it would be even worse. I wish you less pain because of the absence of your 4-legged loved one., Hugs u tight

    I’m so sorry PB. I have also experienced this with two of my pets. They are such a big part of our lives and it hurts when they leave us. I hope your pain will ease with time and he will always be in your heart. Big hugs for you.

    PB I am so sorry for your loss. I miss my four legged babies everyday and though now I smile when thinking of them I do know what you are going through. Just take each day as it comes, good or bad and keep the Rainbow Bridge poem close at hand. It helped me a lot. Hugs my friend ♥

      Thank you Cougar. Some days are good, some not so good but I know he is now out of pain and suffering and that at the end of the journey is all we want for our babies. Hugs.
