My Heart Flowers . . .

The week of hearts is coming.

And the neighbor's red-pink flowers are blooming.
And they seem to block my path!

As they brush past my cheeks as I pass . . .
I should have kissed it instead!

. . . oh, but they sing a haunting melody . . .

. . . as if it knows the haunting in my heart!

. . . of someone once near . . .

. . . but now so far away. . .

You can never really dictate the pace of your grief.
You can pack your sorrows
and remember with joy
and bid your farewell
knowing that at times
saying goodbye is the best thing
and that you will meet again . . . someday.

For all who sent us their love:
Denise, Viola, Kim, January, Joyce, Ria, Lilli,
Pat K, Pat of BaileyRoad, Lisa of CreativeE, Beverly,
Agnes, Hubert, Joey, Patrick, Stephanie & River, Serline,
Connie S, Patches, Finn, Lea, Lorenza, Oskar and Pam
and the friends/fans of the late Sumo:
Tado, DrS, DrG, Let, Cougar, Desmond, Kimberly, Josh, David, PTV, TGC, Umber, Utoy, Ka Undoy, Ka Resty, Ka Pedring, JR, JFK, senor, Ka Pepe, Malinda, AttyC, DrO,
and to all who sent eMails and MMS . . . sorry, but I have to delete messages and can not possibly inquire about your identities and develop our friendship . . . thank you and salamat.
You made us laugh through our tears.
My remaining dog Sweepy and I are OK
and quietly moving on . . .

Have a happy, love-filled Valentines week!

Hello Lui, I am so very sorry to hear of Sumo's passing. It is always so hard to loose one of our sweet fur babies. May Sumo rest in peace.
Hugs,
Judy

Ann said...

what is the name of this flower?

Lui said...

Ann, I do not know that name of this flower and this bush plant. Sorry.

Carver said...

The flowers are so beautiful and very poignant words. I'm sorry about your loss.

The Animal Doctor said...

Lui, I'm glad that you gave us t-shirts with Sumo, Sweepy and Bogart's pictures on them. I will not forget Bogart and Sumo even if they left our world...and I will always be Sweepy's human gf...one of the many, that is. Take care Lui!
