The Unbearable Fading Again

I have lost before
And I’m losing now
I can’t get used to the feeling
My self-talk prevaricates
The voice in my head denying
This familiar ache I want to ignore
Letting go isn’t easy for me
Even though I know it isn’t forever
My heart is already missing your soul
And I don’t want to be selfish
Keep you longer than your body can take
I cannot focus on the agony of loss
My mind needs to remember the joy
Pawprints of love and companionship
That you’ve embedded in my skin
In the being of my everlasting soul

      1. Aww bless her. I went through the same thing with a cat once. It’s horrible to see them when they’re not well. Sending healthy vibes to you and your 🐈
