Merry Christmas Abby and Gracie

We all gladly think of our families and friends at this time of the year.
We give thanks for those that share in health and happiness.
But, it is also a time of reflection for those who are no longer with us.
We miss them, greatly.
Silently.
Longingly.
While we celebrate the Holidays
always know that there are those who are not able to find the joy 
in the season.
While it may be very true that life goes on, as indeed it does.
It also pauses.
So for anyone who is missing a piece of their hearts,
as I am.
Pause.


Abby

 
Gracie


Gracie as I always remember.
Even as I type this in the exact same spot of this photo.
Gracie would always get into the window sill.
Always keep me company.
I guess she still does.
Except my eyes cannot see her.
Now only with my Heart.


 Gracie with me at the computer
It was our ritual.




I can picture you, like a photograph
I can see your smile
I can hear your laugh
No I don't have to look back
I remember you

When I'm all alone
You're all around
I tell you things, yeah I talk out loud
Ever since you left the ground
I remember you

You can ask the sun
You can ask the moon
Every day that goes by
I remember you

And even when
I close my eyes
Like a dream, you come back to life
I can't escape your love, your light
I remember you

You can ask the sun
You can ask the moon, yeah
Every day that goes by
I remember you

And I know some day
Only God knows when
I'll touch your face
And I'll breathe again...

And life goes on, so until then
I remember you

Yeah, I remember you
Mmmmmmm
Every day that goes by
Oooooh
I remember you

  5. Christmas is a bittersweet time as we remember those we love so much who can no longer share this time of celebration with us.
    Thinking of you and Abby and Gracie, and also of course, my beloved Eric.

  11. The ones who have gone before are never more than a moment away - Max a black mancat loved me so much - he used to stand on me and look into my face - it was as if he was memorising every detail of it so he wouldn't forget it. He passed too young and I think he knew he would.

  20. Meowy Cat's Mess from all of us! The many cats who inspired my first artwork are all gone, but sometimes I feel one of them brush my ankles or head butt my elbow. I don't look. They are always there for us, and don't mind sharing us with newer felines.
