Never Say Goodbye

Beloved – Weekly Photo Challenge


My beloved Velvet passed away almost 4 weeks ago.  I miss her every day.   Although I try to speak about my dear friend, I still struggle.  Tears flow down my cheeks and the words just won’t come out.


I have always struggled with the term “good-bye”.  In fact, I avoid using this term, if at all possible. Often, when I end a phone conversation, you will hear me say “good night”, rather than good-bye.


“Good night my friend…I love you…” were the last words I spoke to my sweet Velvet.  Although I will never spend another day with my dear friend, she lives in my heart forever.

I close my eyes and remember…

Her sense of humor…
Her curiosity…
Our connection…

Thank you, my beloved Velvet, for being a wonderful friend, an inspiring teacher and my soul mate.  We will take our wildflower walks together again…

Forever would have never been long enough…

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…

  1. Beautiful memories and photos Roda. She will always be with you. You will feel her breath on the back of your neck and hear her soft nicker when you least expect it. You are a part of her and she of you. Sending you healing energy and comforting breezes my friend. Hugs & prayers. 💛🐴💛

  2. I lost my mare November 13th, 2017 to an aortic aneurysm…Monday will be 12 weeks.
    I have not said goodbye, will not say goodbye.
    When we moved her body, I kissed her muzzle and told her “Until we meet again…” because I know, one day, her and I will be together again. ❤

    1. Losing Velvet was truly losing my best friend. We understood one another, in such a beautiful way. I know we play together once again! 💚 Thank you for sharing and understanding. I am so sorry for your loss.


  3. What a special girl she was. She was so lucky to have you and you were so lucky to have her. It’s obvious that you had an extra strong bond when looking at the pics of you together. Revel in the memories and let her run freely in your heart. ❤️💕❤️💕❤️
