NickyA Posted November 20, 2007 Report Share Posted November 20, 2007 My Toby – I buried you in hasteBeside my self in tears and grief Bereft when you were missingBroken when you were returnedLifeless and damagedI’m sorryI never took time to stroke you againI never left you to sleep on your chair in the lounge for one last timeI never smoothed your fur Or removed the leavesAnd felt your silky softnessI never said good byeI never let the boys say goodbyeDrowning in the rain of painThe darkness of mud and despairAs agony made me digAnd fear made me bury you too soonThe tears of grief The agony of your endless presence That I will never see again.I brought you home But you are not hereI miss you.I brought him straight home from the vets and never let the boys say good bye properly either - apparantly they said between themselves that it was too soon but they never said anything to me.... I just thought it had to be done and there was only me to do it.I just want to hold him again.... and i can't. I was so distraut I wasn't thinking straight.....He was my cat, my friend, always there the way no one else was.... asleep on my bed, demanding treats from only me and the shock and pain of his being killed is indescribable.
