Lilymelba: Benji

dAiLy QuOtE


Today I found a feather..On the bed that my buddy Benji slept.I know that might not sound like anything special...and there is always an explanation for everything...but there was just one solitary feather, exactly were Benji lay.
A grey and white feather....Maybe Benji brought It in with him on one of his walks...Maybe.
Or maybe before I went out the other day, never cleaned up as good as I thought I had and missed the feather when I made the bed...maybe
And maybe It had been there all the time and I just did`nt notice It.....
I don't know were this little grey and white feather came from...and may never know.
I need to make sense of It in my own head...but right now It gives me a sense of comfort...I can only hope It was a gift from my buddy

Rainbow Bridge
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

There's something missing in my home,
I feel it day and night,
I know it will take time and strength
before things feel quite right.
But just for now, I need to mourn,
My heart -- it needs to mend.
Though some may say, "It's just a pet,"
I know I've lost a friend.
You've brought such laughter to my home,
and richness to my days.
A constant friend through joy or loss
with gentle, loving ways.
Companion, friend, and confidante,
A friend I won't forget.
You'll live forever in my heart,
My sweet, forever pet.
