I spotted this on the GAR newsletter,

I ONLY WANTED YOU;

They say memories are golden,
well maybe that is true,
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried,
If love alone could have saved you,
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still,
In my heart you hold a place,
No human could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway,
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven,
and bring you home again.

RIP - Pussy Willow (my darling cat :cry: )

my thoughts are with you........

it's never easy losing a friend, especially a furry companion who listens without judgment and loves unconditionally.

Really nice poem.


On a similar note...

Blow out a candle for a loved one
That gingerly walks away
To places held only in imagination…
As myths and fairy tales of
Lands golden and fields of green
Come to life in bereaved minds,
Blissful destinies where the pure of soul
Will find peace and leave all strife behind…
Shed a tear to wash your love
Holding those that remain
Deep in your heart…
Breathe, and brave the smile
To shine through the gloom of these times,
Smile and remember that
Love and time will heal
The most broken of hearts…

'Home From Abroad' - Laurie Lee


Far-fetched with tales of other worlds and ways,
My skin well-oiled with wines of the Levant,
I set my face into a filial smile
To greet the pale, domestic kiss of Kent.

But shall I never learn? That gawky girl,
Recalled so primly in my foreign thoughts,
Becomes again the green-haired queen of love
Whose wanton form dilates as it delights.

Her rolling tidal landscape floods the eye
And drowns Chianti in a dusky stream;
The flower-flecked grasses swim with simple horses,
The hedges choke with roses fat as cream.

So do I breathe the hayblown airs of home,
And watch the sea-green elms drip birds and shadows,
And as the twilight nets the plunging sun
My heart's keel slides to rest among the meadows.
