her head tucked   
under the curve of her paw   
she snuggled one last time   
into her blanket   
her butterfly breath barely audible   
she sighed   
her soft and gentle spirit   
padded away into night’s silence

  1. Godspeed to your dear kitty. No matter how many times we go through the loss of a four-legged family member, it never, ever becomes less painful. Neither does it stop us from willingly signing up to go through it all over again.

  2. Thank you, Miranda, for your kind words.
