When tomorrow starts without me,
And I'm not there to see;
The sun will rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today,
Remembering how I'd lay my head
In your lap that special way.
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too.

But when tomorrow starts without me.
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name
And petted me with her hand.
She said my place was ready,
In Heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.

But, as I turned to heel away,
A tear fell from my eye,
For all my life I never thought
That I would have to die.
I had so much to live for,
So many purrs and bums to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.

I thought about our lives together,
I know you must be sad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
And all the fun we had.
But life is uncertain,
And death is unavoidable.
Stay strong Dad,
I'll be in your memory forever.

I had stayed all night long hoping that I can give him some comfort while waiting for the best possible chance to get him to the vet but he just could not wait. He left under my watchful eyes at 9.00am sharp by giving me the last blink, "Daddy... I love you..."

Note: It's a nightmare that I lost two December boys within 6 months... it hurts badly~

Oh, Criz, I am so sorry! I wish he could have held on until the vet opened but it evidently wasn't meant to be. Sending a hug.

Selba said...

Oh my... this morning when you told me, I didn't really understand what you were telling me, thought he just disappeared! So sorry to hear about this, Criz. May he rest in peace! *hugs*

My condolences to you my dear Criz. Jerry looks very much like the Jerry I once had, he passed away in 2003 due to kidney failure. Jerry was 8 years old & was the closest kitty I had. Goodbye Jerry L, sleep well. You will be missed & loved forever. Big hugs to you Criz x

I am so very very sorry about Jerry. Most of us, and I also know the terrible pain when our loved babies go away from us. It is a terrible pain to bear and I am so sorry that you have to go through this. Jerry loved you and knew he was loved so much. That is a comfort we can take.

Warm hugs and I'll be thinking of you.

Criz, we understand today is your birthday. We don't imagine you feel like celebrating but we wanted to leave warm wishes and a hug so you know we are thinking of you. Again, we are very sorry about Jerry.

KarenMcG said...

We just heard the news about Jerry. And we're sad for you. We lost our baby, Bowie, yesterday/Saturday, too. In the early morning hours, quite by surprise, so we sort of know what you're going through.

We're also sorry to learn you lost two in 6 months.

But we're glad you were able to be with Jerry at his time.

Hugs and purrs and headbutts from us.
