A Year Ago Today


Flicka, Tigger and Daisy,
Thank you for the precious gift
Of Benji and Cleo
A year ago today.
I love them with all my heart
As they do me
As you know
And knew
We all would.

I ache my heart raw
For you, Flicka, Tigger and Daisy,
But we on Earth,
Benji and Cleo and I,
Feel your love and presence
Around us every moment of every day.

Thank you, my darling furry babies
On Earth and in Heaven
And all my furry babies who preceded you
Who are with you, Flicka, Tigger and Daisy.
We three earthlings know
That you Heavenly babies will welcome
Each one of us
When we reach the Gates of Heaven.
I love you all, my darlings, here on Earth and in Heaven..
May you all know and feel
My love and adoration for you
Forever more
As I do yours.
Oh, what a comforting circle
Of peace
And happiness
And blessing
To be part of!

One day, we will all be
In together-bliss-blessed happiness
In the joyous freedom of Heaven.
