My One and Only Love

I suffered depression so, out of desperation, I got a puppy. He had to be walked and fed and soon won my heart every minute of the day and night. We adored and got devoted to each other in a very short time. He didn't have to be trained, he just knew what he should do.

I am now alone and often think of suicide to end this longing and loneliness at his passing . As I write this, the tears still flow and I never leave the house as he is everywhere I look, inside and outside.

His name was Hero. This poem is for him.

If tears could build a stairway,

and memories a lane,

I'd walk right up to heaven

and bring you back again.

To my sweetheart. I will never be the same without your unconditional love. Kisses every day are sent to you among the shuddering tears.

Your loving mama to my neeneebeebee.

Glenice,

I felt sad to read your memorial. Although I have lost precious pets in my lifetime, as an owner, at first, like yourself, I cannot imagine life without them.

But somehow. Glenice, my life goes on and I find new hopes and purpose and as always, a new pet with a different challenge. And necessary purpose re-enters my life.

With time to heal, I think we see some life purpose that sustains us, to continue on.

I am certain that your love for your pet, will sustain you to find hope and purpose in your own life.

Good Luck
