Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone

My sweet Angel
Jan. 2, 2008-Oct. 2012

It has been almost four months since I last touched and said good bye to Angel and it is hard to believe that time has kept moving on, despite how it might feel.  Whenever a dog dies that is close to me, a song will start playing through my head over and over and it becomes their song.  Angel's song is Bill Withers, Ain't No Sunshine.  Tonight after having to deal with some things I put on the back burner because of her death and finally catching up with them, her song started playing through my head.  And I just sat here, still numb that she is gone, forever.  And even though she's closer to my heart than ever before I'll never forget holding her the day when Silver plopped her in my hands when she gave birth to Angel.  And now I can only touch her spirit deep in my heart.  Forever is lost holding her in my hands again.  And my hands ache for her thick black fur.  And my eyes are sore for those dancing, mischievous eyes of hers that lit up anytime we were near.  A life taken much too soon.  A  life that will be forever missed.

Just once more I wish I could hold Angel again and share my love with her.

Do you have a song for pets that have passed on?

I am sure you miss her very much ...it is never easy. I still miss my Tutu and Daisy who passed away in 2008 and 2009.

She was lovely - I'm glad you had her to love for a while.

Grief never really leaves us; we just learn to focus on the memories that are strong enough to sustain us through the pain. Momma aches in understanding what your loss of Angel feel like.

When Sheena died unexpectedly Momma clung to the Beatles's song Here Comes the Sun and especially the lines, "Little Darling, its been a long cold lonely winter. Little Darling, it seems like years since its been clear." Momma still get tears in her eyes when she hears that song and it has been over 8 years.
