Something very special happened in my studio the other day. As I was re-visiting works in progress, a black poodle appeared. Through tears and paint, I finished the piece. Spent from emotion, my studio time was cut a bit short. Before I left I wrote these words:
Stars don't fall and stay.
They are here for a little while
to shine for a time.
Transformed into something brighter than their physical being...
They are here to bring love
and you realize how much love YOU can hold.
I don't want you to go....
but I know that you must.
So that you can shine the way you were truly meant to.
To be a beacon.
To be an angel to watch over me.
I now know I never lost you.
I will meet you again and join your light
and we will shine together.
I love you.
This is dedicated to all my dear friends who have lost fur-babies over the past year or so......Denise, Carissa, Dawn, Jayme, Michelle, Jessica, Pixie, Paula,......and so many other facebook friends that escape me at this moment. ********I knew I would forget some folks....so sorry...there were so so many lost - this is also dedicated to Kecia, Laura, Elizabeth, and Lenore. If you have lost a fur-baby please post here and let me know. I want to add you to this list. xoxo******
Each time you lost, I lost all over again. I cried with you and ached for your loss. Oh, but there is love. so much love. And we will see our loved ones again waiting on the rainbow bridge.
This painting is a gift for the lovely Denise Phillips who lost her little dark brown poodle last June. This is for you, little Sidney Matisse Laptop
