Gratitude A Pet Loss Poem

 Feathered speckled down

Like a warm, gentle breeze,

You brush my face with your fur.

More than anything

I feel your presence,

Listen to your breath,

Sense your aliveness,

Your love.

A compassionate soul like yours

I have never known before.

How can you look at me with such eyes?

Love spoken a thousand different ways,

A thousand times,

Your sparkle tells all,

Washes over all,

Heals all,

I am filled by your gaze,

Searching deep,

The quest of your tenderness,


The power of your care giving,


The success of your reassurance,


I snuggle into your side

And let all of life’s worries wash away.
