For Tsar, Samba and Sky

In April of last year Tsar left us. A year ago today we lost Samba. Five days later Sky joined her.

We Have A Secret
Author Unknown

We have a secret, you and I
that no one else shall know, 
for who but I can see you lie
each night in fire glow?

And who but I can reach my hand
before we go to bed
and feel the warmth of you 
and touch your silken head?

And only I walk woodland paths
and see ahead of me,
your small form racing with the wind
so young again, and free.

And only I can see you swim
in every brook I pass
and when I call, no one but I
can see the bending grass.

The Ship Of Life
by John T Baker

Along the shore I spy a ship
As she sets out to sea.
She spreads her sails and sniffs the breeze
And slips away from me.

I watch her fading image shrink,
As she moves on and on,
Until at last she's but a speck,
Then someone says, "She's gone."

Gone where? Gone only from our sight
And from our farewell cries.
That ship will somewhere reappear
To other eager eyes.

Beyond the dim horizon's rim
Resound the welcome drums.
And while we're crying, "There she goes!"
They're shouting, "Here she comes!"

We're built to cruise for but a while
Upon this trackless sea,
Until one day we sail away
Into infinity.

I miss you guys so much.

We mourn with you. It's always too soon, but to lose so much in the same year is horrible.

That was a heartbreaking time and I can see why you remember it with the beautiful poetry.

Stella and I both miss Tsar very much. His wacky sense of humor and his singing voice was wonderful. He was Stella's BFF and for her forever is forever.

Hugs to you,

Jo and Stella

I especially love that first poem as I've had that experience many times.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Oh mates. That was so beautiful. We loved the poems. Sending you gentle hugs. We know how you feel. Take care. No worries, and LOVE, Stella and Rory (and Carol)

Oh boy. I can't imagine since we are having a difficult time missing my Benny

Nichole Burke said...

We cry along side you... while dogs fill our lives with so much joy, we will never understand why we only get to enjoy them for such short times. Much love to you all.

We are all here for you. It is so very, very difficult. This is a wonderful tribute for your three. Our hearts and prayers are with you Sue. xo Jeanne, Chloe and LadyBug

I still think of Tsar often. It's hard to lose so many loved ones in such a short time.
