love unconditional

and so much more

Come and sit beside me,

I need the comfort of your warmth,

Your steady heartbeat

soothes my frayed nerves,

allows me to take a deep breath

and settle.

I can smell the freedom

of sun and air

as I lean against you,

no words necessary between us,

just the solace of being.

In those moments,

when I struggle with the

fierce reality of life,

you carry me

without hesitation,

without knowing the full story,

without needing

anything in return.

I catch you staring at me

with so much love,

as though you can see right

through my hollow soul.

It fills pieces in bit by bit

giving me something

to hold onto when

days are dark

and your light has finally

moved on

from this world.

Thank you, my friend,

for rescuing me.

Just some love and appreciation for our sweet animal family members. Nothing compares to their unconditional love.

Thank you for reading!

My baby, Norma Jean, never leaves her mommy's side
My sweet grandcat, Soup :)

    Great work! I really enjoyed reading this short piece, but it felt complete. A little meloncholy, a slight sense of yearning, hellos and goodbyes are fitted into one poem. Thank you so much for sharing and congratz on your top story!!! ^^

    Heather, I needed this today! It's about to be my first Christmas without one of my beloved fur babies and it's been so hard to acknowledge... This gave a me a moment to reflect on it and process everything. Thank you!! Also... your fur-babies are sooooo cute!! I also have an orange tabby!! But I'll admit yours is a lot skinnier than mine! Anyways, congrats on Top Story!! This was a great one!
