letting go


i sat

and stroked the head of our old, diabetic cat

i knew

her end was near

i cried


i prayed


i ran interference for my daughter
she didn't need to see this

so i did it


the heavens above

released with me

phone calls made

daughter is in shock, but on her way over

she needs to say goodbye too

what do my daughter and i have to share now?

another tethering cord has been cut

i am numb

i can only listen to the rain

ten years

twice a day insulin shots

no more

lily is finally at rest
