View Full Version : Thinking Of You Buddy

08-02-2005, 10:23 AM
Thinking of you today my dearest friend & thanking God to
have had the pleasure of having you in my life. It was three years
ago that I had to see you off on your journey to Rainbow Bridge.
I love & miss you sweetheart and think of you daily.Rest easy
baby until we meet again.


They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

Forgive me Liz, for seeing this so late, but I think of Buddy always especially when I see your name in a post. We've known each other a long time on PT. I know he's with you always.

Dear Buddy, it's me again baby. I can't believe it's been four years since
you were sent on the way to Rainbow Bridge. I wanted you to know how
much you are missed ,how much you are still loved.


As I sit in those moments of quiet,
When sadness invades me,
I know that yesterday,
You were here.

Now you are away from us,
Not knowing your future,
Or when you'll come home, but yesterday,
You were here.

It has now been a week,
A week since you last were in the house,
An entire week since we carried you away,
To the place where we did not know your future,
But just last week,
You were here.

Another day passes;
a week ago, you were still with us,
In daily reports from the clinic,
They did not know your future,
But we could still hope, and,
You were here.

More days pass,;
A week ago you left us,
Your head cradled in our hands,
Your spirit gracefully moving upward,
But for a few hours of that day,
You were here.

Sadness invades again,
As I know that once those hours pass,
I can no longer look back,
Over the span of a familiar week's time,
To find that comforting point when,
You were here.

More time will pass;
Sadness will not so much invade as menace,
And I will mark the days,
Saying things like,
"last month, last summer, last Halloween, last year,"
You were here.

I dread that day,
One year from now,
That first marking of the time,
That your body was no longer with us;
Though we will never forget you,
Your tangible memory fades,
The feel of your fur, your head, your back, your weight against us,
The smell and sounds of you when,
You were here.

The emptiness is beginning to fade,
To change into another reality,
One with you still playing a part,
But a role of ethereal presence rather than physical comfort we crave;
Your memory, your spirit, your essence and counsel,
Dwell with us, but this feeling is not the same as when,
You were here.

Oh, God, Liz. I can't stop the tears. Four years- so long, but, so close, still. Still feeling your pain, and hoping the healing continues.

Gentle hugs to you.

:( :( Always a prayer for you, Bud.

That was a beautiful poem, Liz. I printed it out. I know how you feel and I do empathize completely. It seems so long ago....and just yesterday. Sending my heart out to you (and tears). Hugs.

last Halloween,
You were here.
This part sent me immediately into crying my eyes out....Halloween morning at 11:00am was the last time I held my Shiloh...looked into her eyes.....and let her go........................It still hurts.

Buddy was a beautiful boy, and I can tell you miss him a lot. :( He is with you in spirit. :)

Loved the poems.

Buddy, I hope you were right there to greet our babies when they arrived. We miss you.

Beautiful tributes, Liz. I'm so glad you posted those two poems, they express our losses so well. Buddy's looking down at you, sending you licks & tail wags from heaven.

08-05-2006, 03:00 AM
Liz, the poems were just beautiful and the second one especially spoke to me. How beautifully written. I fantasize a little sometimes that it would be nice if all of our PT furbabies who have gone on, have met up with each other. Just in the six years that I have been here there have been quite a few to join that group. :( ((((hugs))))

Hi Buddy, it's me. I'm still here sweetheart & thinking of you today.
Some days you seem so far away and other days I remember every
one of your favorite resting spots around the house & I want to call
to you & see your happy face as you run to meet me. I love & miss you
baby boy. Till we meet again.

Life's Eternal Song

I hold you 'till Life's Breath is gone
I cry for all I'm worth
Even though I know we share a memory
Of you and I on Earth.

As I sit upon the windowsill
Looking out into the rain
There's still a brightness in the sky
That clears away the pain

As I look into the Heavens
I feel that you are gone
But I know that you are there with God
Singing Life's Eternal Song
