ANGEL LOST


Love is eternal
but loss
divested of description
exists in an abyss
her absence echoes
an unnerving silence
a shattered heart
bound by tears and sorrow
until we meet again.

Patches, my little girl, passed away, a year ago today. My reaction to the day was overwhelming. I wrote this tribute through tears. Thank you for your kind words.

    2. Thanks Pat, and you are so right. Forever remembered, and amazing how the tears just flow, the loss as fresh as if it happened today. No, not easy, never will be.

  2. Oh my god- is that your little puppy? I am absolutely devastated for you. I'm wrapping you in a virtual, warm hug right now and hoping you can feel it. Bless you for translating your grief into beautiful poetry.

    1. I'm sorry Beverly, I should have made it clear. Patches was 10 when she died last year. It was unexpected and tragic for its suddenness, but more so for the loss of such a trusted and loving friend. Today is the anniversary of that date, and it hit me harder than I expected. Thank you for our kind words, and the virtual hug.

    1. Thank you Gary, I knew the day was coming. I've been celebrating her life but for some reason I still wasn't prepared. Thanks for the kind words of understanding. She meant the world to me, still does, always will!

  5. Hi Yolanda. I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of Patches. It's so painful to lose a beloved pet. Whenever someone loses a pet I always send them a poem titled the Rainbow Bridge. I'm not sure if you've heard of it, but it's really beautiful. https://rainbowsbridge.com/Poem.htm

    Best wishes.

  6. Awwww, she was such a cutie. I don't think we ever entirely get over the loss of a dog or cat, because they're more than just members of the family. They love us unconditionally and never ever let us down. I'm so sorry for you loss. Beautiful poem, lady.
