Unmendable

Unmendable

I’ve tried so hard to heal, over four years now I’ve cried;
Since that fateful February evening, when my Nico sadly died!
It came without a warning, his passing such a surprise;
In the morning he had walked with me, by the evening his demise!
.
I almost died the same night, when we found him laying there;
His body so very lifeless, much more than I could bear!
I laid by him till morning, I stroked him as I wept;
The pain so excruciating, my Soulmate ever slept!
.
I had to say goodbye to him, I gave him one last kiss;
Knowing that my Soul would be mourning, and forever him would miss!
But we had another obligation, his younger brother, our dear Cody;
Whom I’m sure was devastated, and was mourning just like me!
.
So for two and one half years then, Cody was our main concern;
He was our one remaining “boy, boy”, for whom our world turned!
But one day, fate came calling, and took our baby from our arms;
Ne’er again to ever hold him, ne’er again to feel his charms!
.
It will very soon be two years ago, that our dear Cody had to leave;
The last one of our little boys, now forever do we grieve!
Our broken Souls are unmendable, shattered well beyond repair;
Once they were so happy, when their mates were both still there!
.
.
They’re unmendable
Our broken hearts and sad Souls
Ever will they weep

I fully understand your pain, as our pets are part of our family; we never want to say goodbye, and it's devasting - nothing can prepare you for your loss, but knowing that you have given this litte darling a good life helps to heal. A lot of dogs and cats do not get this chance! God bless! XX

Dear Lyndy,

Thank you so much for your beautiful heartfelt words.  You understand the pain of having to lose two children within a couple of years of one another.  The heartache is neverending, for they were irreplaceable.  

Love,

Hello LARRY!!...I find it so difficult to comment on these poems..... you have written SO many for them both and I feel like I am repeating myself when I offer my empathetic feelings.... but I had to comment on this write because of its effortless beauty.... there is something unassuming about the delivery of this piece that rings true to the heart..... at least to mine...... for there seems a quiet acceptance that can be read between the lines here ~ an unforced grace about the Love shared!!.....Absolutely BEAUTIFUL phrasing my friend!!......ALL STARS!! & PINNED!!....... Lots of Love to you and Linda!!..... your ever-friend and admirer!!......T xo 🐧✴❤❤❤❤✴🐧

My Dear Tony,

You honor us with your words of untold beauty.  We realize, that lately, we have saturated our site with tributes to our precious little boys, Nico and Cody.  But, with the acquisition of our precious little Soulmate Cookie, dear memories of our blessed Nico and Cody, have come flooding back.  We compare her puppy life, to that of both of theirs, which brings a most heartfelt dichotomy of both laughter and tears.  This, coupled with the loss twelve days ago, of our dear friend Franklin,  has awakened us to the realization of our own.  In the near future, we promise to diversify.   But, in the meantime, we kowtow to your kindness.

All our love,
Linda and Larry xxx

Hi dear Larry...I know you have had so much loss of special ones in your life.  It is so unfair.  I am so thankful though that Cookie is there for you to hug and feel comfort as you still feel the loss of Nico and Cody.  Anyone that has had beloved pets understands that hole that does not go away.  I will always understand the sentiments you express in your writes.  I send hugs and compassion for what you feel.  xo ;)

Our Dear Cherie,

Our beautiful little Cookie brings us a multitude of joy, but, unfortunately, also brings back treasured memories of Nico and Cody.  This is the harbinger of reveling in all the little treasured things she does, but also, looking back to all wonderful times we spent with our dear little boys.  A most painful dichotomy.

All our love,
Linda and Larry xxx
