My Shattered Glass Menagerie

My Shattered Glass Menagerie

My Shattered Glass Menagerie, is composed of my heart and Soul;
Both are smashed to pieces, never again will they be whole!
For my boys were their cohesive, they loved them beyond compare;
But now, they’re ever weeping, for their mates, no longer there!
.
They cry all day for their absence, every night, so unfulfilled;
Without their little Angels, whose life from them was spilled!
The Reaper claimed them early, one by one, they sailed away;
Ne’er again, to hold them closely, ne’er again, a perfect day!
.
I will cry for them forever, eternal tears will I ever shed;
For I will never again caress them, the culmination of my dread!
Even when they were here with me, I had nightmares about their end;
Knowing of their short longevity, such little time on Earth to spend!
.
I wallow in the mire, of the pain engulfing me;
I live now in the darkness, when the light I used to see!
I try to think of good things, but my tears drown out my thoughts;
My happiness is fleeting, I will ever now be wrought!
.
.
My little Angels
My heart and Soul are e’er yours
My love eternal

Our Dear Brother Tony,

"The heart knows...... the pen translates!!"  What beautiful words.  They bring tears to our eyes.  Nico and Cody were much more than pets!  They were our little boys, and the pain of losing two children in 2 1/2 years, is impossible to bear.  It is a great source of solace for me, to write poems about them, and bring them back to life for a little while.
Thank you Tony, for bringing us some happiness today.

All our love,
Linda and Larry xxx

My Dear Cleo,

Perfect words for a comment on this poem.
"Lovely", for the passion I feel for my lost Soulmates.
"Sad", for the destruction I feel in my heart and Soul.

Love,

HI dear Larry....I always feel such pangs when I read of your loss of Nico and Cody...and relate to my own pain of losing Jade.  My children talk about her all the time and we all get teary eyed reminiscing of how loving and loyal she was to us all....a huge loss felt.  I am so happy I had her love as long as I did.  Anyone who has NOT had a dog has no idea of how devastating that separation is...but I do and it makes me feel for you and Linda....Your boys would want you happy and to let you know that your love willl be reunited someday.....Love n Hugs, xo

My Dear Cherie,

These two little boy dogs were as close to being my children as humanly possible.  The loss that I felt and have continued to feel is gut-wrenching, and I fear that the pain will never go away.  I miss both of them dearly, but Cody was my baby and I hear him often as each day goes by.  For me, the only thing that will help, is to get another little boy dog puppy, but for many reasons, that just is not feasible.  So, the days go by and I continue to feel my incredible pain and grief.
Thank you for your very kind and compassionate words.  I am so sorry for your loss of Jade.  I know you and your family miss her so much.

All my love,
Linda xxx
