gasping around in awe,
loving the sights i see,
rising from the subway,
but not truly seeing the wonders around me.
the empire state building is clouded by my own sorrows,
the world famous city dimmed by my past
realizing that i can never share these experiences with you.

full of family happiness and love,
all clouded by that one missing soul.
i couldn’t share my dinner with you.
i couldn’t snuggle up with you.
what is Christmas without you?

now taking my exams,
sure i can share the happiness of my expected results with my parents.
the one i wanted to share it with is you
but now you are gone,
and all i do is cry.
i just want to retreat to myself,
that loving that has been around for as long as i can remember
torn away.
leave me alone.
can i just not join you?
please. Just let me

    Sally-Ann, I am sure you are talking about your cat Casper….I also had a cat that I adored and
    when he passed on I was devastated..he lived to be 21 and I am now writing a children’s book
    about him…write about all your happy times with really helps..Love you…Sally xxoo

  • thanks, i am…it helps when i just want to cry. she was killed at someone else’s hand..well…i feel as i am partly to blame..but nvm. i remember telling her that the first person i would tell my exam results was her but now i can’t. as it grows closer to august 21st i realize it more and more. so i just miss her more… i love writing about her because she was the best thing in my life…

    Sally-Ann, I know I adored my Casper…when he died I was heartbroken…but I have started to
    write about him…stories of things that really happened…he was big fat and orange..adorable..
    he died several years ago and I have always had alot of cats…I now have 12…all strays…all
    wonderful…but like people you can never replace any particular one in your heart…but others comfort you…and again put their little pawprints on your heart..
    Sally xxxxxxoooooo
