Bourbon’s Lesson

Written by  Dr. Tricia Working

Now only tears and memories remain

 

Broken hearts left behind

 

Your last hours etched in my mind

 

 

 

If I had only known these last days

 

Were to be truly

 

Your last days, I would have

 

Tried harder, spent more time with you

 

Loved you more

 

At least I tell myself so

 

But I loved you all your life

 

From 2 days old

 

To almost 11, from Atlanta to Birmingham

 

I will never forget the trouble I had

 

In naming you

 

Nothing fit your uniqueness

 

Finally ‘Bourbon’ just appeared in my mind

 

And I knew

 

It flowed from my soul

 

Like a smooth sweet Southern whiskey

 

You responded to it

 

Your cobalt blue eyes lit up

 

You have fought valiantly for months

 

Against this corona virus

 

To now be brought down by cancer

 

You kept it to yourself

 

I would have been there

 

Tried to stop it, fix it, heal it

 

3days, within 3 days you were gone

 

I HAD NO TIME TO PREPARE

 

I wanted to journey with you

 

But you chose to go forward alone

 

Teaching me to treasure each moment

 

For it is not guaranteed

 

To love today as if there is no tomorrow

 

And to be grateful for the love you are given because

 

It is a gift that someone else could have received instead

 

I will carry you with me my sweet BurBunny

 

Be with Magic, Destiny, Maximillian, Journey, Bear and all our little loves

 

Guide my path and my heart to help
