I Am Sorry Tiger

by Chandni

Tiger (12 years and 6 months), my darling left me on 11th May 2012. He was a month old when I saw him for the first time on 22nd December 1999, after I returned home from school. That day was the happiest day of my life and will always be.

Tiger, I am sorry for not being there with you when you were taking the last breath of your life. I will always regret that. I was away from home and returned two days after you left us. I came to know you were suffering, and your condition got really bad when I was away. But if I had been at home, I would never have allowed anyone to make you sleep forever.

I am sorry for the things I couldn't do for you. I wanted to give you all the happiness that you deserved. But you know how our family members were. I never showed our family members how much I loved you, but I know you know how much I cared for and loved you.

No one will ever understand my pain nor can I tell anyone. But it seems a part of me is dead and I can never recover the dead part again. I don't feel like doing anything these days. Home without you seems so dead. Please come back.

I miss everything about you, your entire journey from being pup to an Old Tiger. Love you so much. Miss you so much.

Rest In Peace, Tiger

Yours and only Yours,

Kitty
