Unconditional Love

Unconditional Love

I know the day is near,

Time for final goodbyes,

I never imagined it this way,

I thank you for the companionship,

What you brought each day,

Heart filled with unconditional love,

A shining light through the darkest of days,

I know my actions are right,

But guilt stands in the way,

I know I have to do this,

I want to say I am sorry,

But I know I’m freeing you from pain.

    • Yes, unfortunately her kidneys and liver are failing. I took her to the vet a week ago from Friday and I got the news that she was beginning to show poor health. Since that time, she has rapidly regressed. Tomorrow (Saturday), I am taking her to be put to sleep. I know it is the right decision but I feel awful. She has been a wonderful friend and companion over the last 17 years. She has always been there. I will miss her greatly. Thank you for the well wishes.

    • Yes, my heart broke as well writing it. The day will be Saturday. She has been a good companion and a great friend. I hate to lose her but I know it is for the best.

      I am sorry for your loss as well. Pets aren’t just animals they become part of the family.

    • Thank you. I really appreciate all of your kind words and encouragement today. You and other friends have helped ease the pain I feel. The decision was so difficult. I know in my heart it was the right thing because I do love her. She was such a wonderful little soul. I wish I could have given her some of the years I have left so we could have spent more time together.


      • What a beautiful and unselfish act that you have uttered to give more of your life to her so you can spend more time with her. It speaks volume of your kind essence and a giving one as well. I am humbled by your utterance of these words. Thank you


      • I really mean it. She was a beautiful soul. All who knew her loved her. She brought so much joy to this world. Sometimes big things come in very small packages. In our world, it seems often times, cruelly, the most beautiful souls are taken way too early. Though very old for a cat, seventeen years was not enough time. That being said, I tried to make the most of it.

        This may sound silly but I wish somehow she could have told me she knew I loved her and that she forgave me for the mistakes and missteps and knew that my heart was in the right place at the right time. I am so thankful that we found her living on the street. She deserved a wonderful life and I hope I was able to give her it.
