I could hear you say my name, in your very gentle way.
You told me that it was all right, I didn’t have to stay.
I was getting very tired, and the pain was leaving too
I closed my eyes a second, and a field came into view.I still could hear you talking, but you seemed quite far away
Though I longed to be beside you, I just couldn’t seem to stay
For one moment I was with you, and the next I’m running free
I turned my head and there were others, running next to me.We ran together through the field, and birdies filled the sky.
We chased and played together, then I turned and wondered why?
Why were you not behind me? I wondered where you went.
Then someone was beside me, and He had a lovely scent.He petted me and told me that I simply had to wait.
That before I ‘d time to miss you, you’d be coming through the gate.
He said that very loyal pets, were granted special space
To wait for those who loved them, to see again their face.So please, know I am waiting with dogs and cats, and many more
For the day that I can see again the face that I adore.
It’s really such a lovely place, there’s no sickness and no pain.
I’ll be so very filled with joy when I see you once again.Thank you for setting me free.The Spirit of a homeless Cat
By Carol NotermannModel is Roo, I rescued him in 2008 when he was homeless.Roo was put to rest on November 28, 2011.
His presence in our lives is missed every single day.
Roo’s spirit taught me so much about appreciating life…right now.
His sweet soul and kind heart will live on….
for as long as I live, he shall not die.
