Four months into Eternity

Wooos to you all, Star here.
Hu-mom is working on a very cute post, "A Penguin's Tale", but it isn't quite ready.
We don't mean to be morbid, posting about another RB husky so soon after Anna, but today marks four months since our dear Sherman left us. Mom was feeling very sad, and made something special for Sherman. This sort of thing helps our humans cope when we must leave to go North of the Rainbow Bridge. I liked it, I think Sherman would too, so I wood to her to post it here on my blog.

November winds are blowing bolder,
November air is growing colder…
Four months, dear boy, four months since you left,
it feels like it's been forever, it feels like it happened yesterday.

In eternity there is no time, only now.
I miss you every moment of “now”.

The wind blows, and I miss seeing you run like the wind.

The sun shines, I miss how it gleamed on your coat.

The gold and red petals drop from the stem, I miss those tuffs of golden fluff you dropped everywhere.

The moon shines, and I look for you, angel-white in the moonlight.

The rain falls and mists rise, and I miss how the droplets perched on the tips of your fur.
Soon the snow will blow, and I will miss seeing snowflakes on your snow-nose.

I see a rainbow, but where is the gold at the end of it?

I strain to go past the rainbow, where you crossed, but I cannot follow.

To see you again, I look within.
The warmth of your memory shields my heart against
the coldness of your absence, my golden butter-boy.
I close my eyes and hug the air,
beckoning your spirit to come near,
Yet I know you couldn’t be any closer, not ever,
because your love fills my heart from the inside out, forever.
I miss you, dear friend, I miss you.

Beautifully said, Mom.

I, too, cry often at the loss of my lil Fluff-Ball, Husky wanna-be ... dear Bowser left a big hole in my heart, just as Sheman did in yours.

We can take some pleasure in knowing that they're both romping together at The Bridge ... I hope Sherm *waits* for "Shorty" to catch up every so often.

{{{Hugs}}} of Sympathy, Pat.

Wooos, Phred,
I miss your little guy, too.
You know Sherman, he preferred a leisurly pace, I'll bet Bowz keeps up, no problem. It's nice to know that Bowzer's treading on 4 good legs, and Sherman can see in 20/20 now, keeping a sharp eye out for newcomers. They were both there with tails wagging to welcome Anna!

(((hugs))) to comfort you.

What a beautiful tribute to Sherman. It made us cry again. And we just know Sherman is playing with our Cubby and they are having a good time. We'll see them again.

That is making us cry! What a nice think for your mom to write. Be extra nice to your mom so she doesn't feel so sad.

That was so beautiful. Mom has those salty, wet things on her face, but in a good way, she says. What a love-filled tribute!
God bless and watch over sweet Sherman!

That was a very well written, beautiful tribute to Sherman. He's a beautiful husky and we can tell that he was an essential part to your family. Hugs!

Holly said...

Ok, tears are running down mom's face. It will be 2 years on the 19th since mom lost her Shula, and she knows JUST how your mom feels. Still.

That was absolutely beautiful.

WOW, what a beautiful boy Sherman was!!! Us and our Mom all cried 2gether when we read about him, we went right back in your blog until before Sherman got sick. We are so sorry that you lost your dear Sherman, he was so loved. It scares our Mom cause he got sick so quickly and he was so young.

Your Mom has written so beewootiful poems, she's very clever.

We think your blog is siberrific and hope to get to know you lots better.
