Your Loss

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
― Anatole France

our furry babies

more family than mere  pets

leave paw prints on hearts

soft furry bodies

wet noses and wet kisses

comfort our spirits

the love that is shared

 true and unconditional

unwaveringly

their passing painful

even more than some humans

the void more complete

they live forever

when no longer by our sides

at home in our hearts

~Melanie Blackwell

~a WP friend lost a furry family member.  This is to offer some comfort.
