Heaven's Paws - a tribute to those we lost

The journey has been great and terrible

 

We share with each other

 

Memories and tears

Water rising, wind raging, thunder savage

 

Reigning down upon us –

 

We – who were left

 

Left behind, as so many of us

 

Began in this world

 

Alone

 

Darkness and despair within our hearts

 

Aching for our children

 

Our families

 

The heartbreak of separation

 

Some enforced, some not

 

But alone still

 

Left to endure Nature’s ravage

 

Our tears becoming the rain

 

Paws reaching for safety

 

How can it be?

 

We ask in our hearts

 

As hours turn to days

 

Memories of our life and loved ones

 

Break the stillness

 

Of oncoming Death

 

No hope, no words, no touches

 

No One Comes

 

We shiver in water, debris, toxins

 

Our cries echo silently

 

A last breath, last look

 

Through pain-filled eyes

 

Our last thought

 

Of those we loved

 

And left behind

 

We stretch lazily in warmth and light

 

And look into loving eyes

 

Fear not, it is over

 

We are told

 

To cry no more tears

 

To look back with love

 

We are home, not alone

 

Heavenly lights enfold us

 

A new journey begins
