She Waited for Me…

I recall the blackness, as if it were just moments ago…
darkened woods, lifeless remains, howling winds.
The heavens, peppered with starlight, too frozen to twinkle,
carried frigid breath, as my eyes released salty sorrow.
Encased by a deep chill-
Although my hands and feet were deadened from Winter’s icy grip,
my heart ached, as death lingered all to near.

My friend was no longer alive;
she was just breathing.
Lifeless moments held space and time,
while her eyes gazed beyond what I could humanly witness.
The boundaries had blurred between life and death,
while a haunting shadow reflected along the frozen earth.
No longer willing to dance…
to live…
to flourish…

She waited, as shallow breaths warmed my icy tears,
for me to say goodnight…


Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…

  1. People will never truly understand what it’s like to hold a loved one, animal or human, as they take their last
    breath. Sending you comforting thoughts and blessings of peace to help you through your sadness. Hugs to you my friend. 😢🐴💛

  2. Just when I think I couldn’t possibly be more infatuated with your soul, you write something like this.
    Felt every word. Our animal friends are our soul brothers and sisters. They touch parts of our heart that mist humans can’t reach.
    Love you and your beautiful everything 💙

  3. I am so sorry Roda…these are beautiful words but it remains so sad. The only times I cry in a movie is when an animal is injured or dying so I feel your pain.

  4. For many of us, a horse or a pet is not just a horse, or just a cat/ dog but rather a beloved member of our family, bringing companionship, fun, and joy to our lives. Roda I’m so sorry for your loss. May she rest in peace.
