Letting go

And here it was
As I waited for you
Feeling the fear, the ball that suffocates
Inching upward
To the throat
Would you return
As cold air feels beyond the glass
And you were out there
Fumbling weakly
Being yourself
Living your life
Would I do it
Let you go to face for a moment
For how long?
When do,I begin to search
For you..
This world alone calls
As your days draw
To a close and your body
So frail fights
To be yourself
One last time to be
I open the door and watch
As you limp silently forth
Being you
Breathing the air
And I feel it
This sadness within
As I want to hold you
To keep you close
To watch you
To be with you
And I cannot save you yet…
I need to be there
As that final breath comes
When it is just enough
And you let go
And I let go
And all that remains….

And cherished memories.

My cat is in failing health…and I believe he wants to be with his buddy Zip who left us just a few short years ago…but it gets so hard…to let him do his thing, to let him go…to let him be happy in these his final days. Keeping watch with no control, except the faith that someone is waiting out there to take him home. His name is Meep “fat squishy” but no longer fat…just getting by but loved and still spoiled.

I am a sometimes poet on a quest to master the universe of my mind. My writing runs the gamut of nature, off beat, life and basically the world as I see it through the windows of my eyes. Welcome to my blog. Sit a spell in your big comfy armchair or favorite spot and read for a while if it suits and don't forget to leave a comment to let me know who you are and all that jazz. Looking forward to what each day brings and catch you on the flip side of the stars. Peace and blessings.

  1. My heart aches for you, sincerely and deeply. My precious tabby, Aspen, died in my arms a week after my birthday back in 2009. She was elderly and frail, yet at the same time full of life and love right to the very end. May peace be with you through this difficult time. ❤ And may your precious cat be at peace as well. ❤

    1. Thank you so very much. It is difficult to know when it is time…I only hope they aren’t suffering in the meantime….life is so short and fleeting in the big scheme of things…memories take over where presence is gone.

  2. It is so sad, my friend. Enjoy in his company while you can. It is a cycle of life after all. But he touched your life with his furry love and that’s what stays in your heart forever. ❤

  3. I’m very sorry to hear that… Though our lives are short, cats’ and dogs’ are just a twinkle.
    Now cats are strong. It may recover for a while?
    With you there!
