They fail to comprehend my grief:
because you weren't human they set you apart
and valued you less than a worn out shoe -
but what does it know, the cold cold heart?

Into my life such joy you brought.
My friend, my confidante, what on earth will I do
without you here in this lonely life
that has suddenly grown pointless without you?

You never uttered a hurtful word, 
never lied, cheated nor stole;
but just gave and gave without ever taking.
You were such a beautiful soul.

A vivid memory is all I have left
to carry me through my days,
of your cute little face so full of trust...
I'm left in a heartbroken daze.

My tears are falling like raindrops now,
each one a reminder of you
more precious than a glittering diamond
in the deepest shade of blue.

Those eyes that looked on me last night
are blind now, and beneath the earth
you're all alone and in the dark.
Oh my little one I so yearn to unearth

you this very moment and bring you home,
to hold you close to my heart and say
all those things I've left unsaid -
like how I've loved you more each day

and how your absence will leave such a hole
in a world that's turned upside down.
A part of me died with you last night,
in emotion I fear I'll drown.

Well I guess it's time to say goodbye,
but I'd much rather say see you soon -
for I know we'll be reunited someday
and for me that day can't come too soon.

Rest in peace, my precious Spot.
My love for you will never die...❤❤❤


  1. Sorry but I enjoyed the words so much more than the sorrow. Sorry for your loss. Wonderful writing.

  2. Oh Ygraine. I am so very sorry.
    They find a home deep in our heart and take a piece of us with them when they leave. Heartfelt hugs and oceans of caring are flowing across the skies and the seas to you.

      The loss of my beloved little companion has hit me harder than I expected, even though I knew it was coming.😢

  7. My beautiful soul sister...
    weep to heal your misery
    tears are a gift for healing
    grief only comes to those who love
    death is but another path we take in life
    we all must wear the face of grief for those we have loved
    even though we have grown tired, worn and weary ❤

    Beautiful Soul your words come deep from within and I feel your pain.

    All My Love My Dear Soul Sister ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

    1. Dearest Soul Sister...I wept when I read your kind words...not so much from sorrow, as from how your beautiful compassionate heart's expression touched me so deeply.

      Please stay safe, my beautiful friend...and have a wonderful weekend.

      All my love and hugs ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  11. Hello...first and foremost, I feel your pain and cry tears of sorrow with you. I've lost many dear pets in my life, and even tho it's been years since my favorite kitty passed, I still keep her in my memory...I still grieve at times, but I can now look at her picture and smile from all the joy she brought into my life. I hope soon you'll be able to do the same. It takes time to heal.

    Secondly,I just wanted to add that I came here from your comment link at Jan's blog, Candles & Cobwebs.

    1. Oh thank you so much, Anni!
      Yes, I really does hurt when you lose a beloved pet, doesn't it? It's funny, what you say about the photo. I have been sitting here today, just gazing at photos of Spot. And it did make me feel close to him again!😊😊

      Have a lovely day xxx

  12. precious friend Ygraine oh i am deeply sorry for your loss and this lamenting poetry has already made me cry
    i know my no words can help to reduce your pain you feel right now by loosing your pet ,i have loose mine when i had brown little puppy when i was little girl ,how weird that we got along for hardly one month and i still miss him and i know i will never forget him.
    pets become part of our being when we stay close to them for so long and loosing such precious friend is sorrow forever indeed
    wishing you peace and sending much healing energy and big hugs my dear friend
    i hope you find soon a new friend who can cheer you up like Spot !

    1. Dearest Baili...oh you truly are so kind...your words have brought such comfort to me.😊😊
      Do you find, too, that animals can often make better friends than some human beings? They are so faithful and are always there for us. I used to pour my heart out to Spot whenever I felt unhappy or disappointed...and he would just look at me as if he totally understood! Maybe I am just silly and was deluding myself, but that is how it felt!
      Oh thank you, my dear friend, so much.😊😊

      Much love and hugs ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  13. I'm truly sorry to hear about your loss!

  14. I'm so sory for your loss, ygriane...

    1. Thank you so much...I truly appreciate that.😊😊

  15. So sorry to read that bittersweet poem of your beloved Spot.

  16. Your poem is sad and very painful. But at the same time it is beautiful. Because your words are full of love.
    I understand your pain. In other words, I do not fully understand your pain because I never been in an identical situation. In any case I am with you in your suffering.
    Stay well my dear friend and receive a hug full of affection.

    1. Oh most heartfelt thanks. I truly appreciate your support and friendship.😊😊
