My Dearest Cheeseburger: "I'm everything I am Because you loved me." Love Always, Mommy I was driving home from my part-time job this afternoon on the way to my full-time job, and I rarely listen to the radio anymore, but I turned it on today and the following song was playing: "Because You Loved Me" by Celine Dion. It reminded me so much of my Cheeseburger and how I feel about him, and the happiness and love he brought to my life.The lyrics really struck my heart; it's as if these words were written to express exactly what our babies mean to us and how much impact they have on our lives. Cheeseburger showed me more love, friendship, trust, understanding, and compassion than any one I have ever known. He was a smart, loving, beautiful little boy. I miss him so much. Our beautiful babies are pure, unconditional love, and that is why I truly believe even when they are gone, our connection and bond with them never ends. Their spirit and love lives on within our hearts forever. I am including the lyrics to "Because You Loved Me." I LOVE YOU CHEESEBURGER. Dee Cheeseburger's Mom firstname.lastname@example.org "Because You Loved Me." For all those times you stood by me For all the truth that you made me see For all the joy you brought to my life For all the wrong that you made right For every dream you made come true For all the love I found in you I'll be forever thankful baby You're the one who held me up Never let me fall You're the one who saw me through through it all You were my strength when I was weak You were my voice when I couldn't speak You were my eyes when I couldn't see You saw the best there was in me Lifted me up when I couldn't reach You gave me faith 'coz you believed I'm everything I am Because you loved me You gave me wings and made me fly You touched my hand I could touch the sky I lost my faith, you gave it back to me You said no star was out of reach You stood by me and I stood tall I had your love I had it all I'm grateful for each day you gave me Maybe I don't know that much But I know this much is true I was blessed because I was loved by you You were my strength when I was weak You were my voice when I couldn't speak You were my eyes when I couldn't see You saw the best there was in me Lifted me up when I couldn't reach You gave me faith 'coz you believed I'm everything I am Because you loved me You were always there for me The tender wind that carried me A light in the dark shining your love into my life You've been my inspiration Through the lies you were the truth My world is a better place because of you You were my strength when I was weak You were my voice when I couldn't speak You were my eyes when I couldn't see You saw the best there was in me Lifted me up when I couldn't reach You gave me faith 'coz you believed I'm everything I am Because you loved me. Dee + Cheeseburger = LOVE

Thank you for sharing that song with us. It really means a lot and is so true for all of us. They really were our strength, and I need that strength so much right now. As the song says you can get through anything with their help and love. They saw us through it all, the good and the not so good. They made it easy to deal with what ever came our way. I find that I cannot listen to music much anymore as it all makes me sad. Even some ad jingles make me sad for some odd reason. I know how much you miss Cheeseburger and I am so sorry for that loss. I hope that you are finding some peace during this time. Helen

"I had your love, I had it all" .... so very true. My Pook was to me
like Cheeseburger was to you - my everything. I think about him constantly. It is a love we'll never find again. I miss him so much yet I can tell, from signs, he hasn't left me. It amazes me, these little signs. You get them, too. I can't wait to be with him again. ~~Andee

What a beautiful song for your loving Cheeseburger. The great love that you have for each other could not be expressed better than in the picture of the two of you. I hope that hearing Because you loved me brought back many great and heartwarming memories of your loving Cheeseburger. I know that our little pets made us better people. When I feel upset about something I remember my Meister and how sweet he was every day of his life and how much love he gave to us. I will be thinking about you today. Many Hugs, Mary Meisters Mom

The perfect song for the perfect love you shared with Cheeseburger. It's true, we are who we are because of the unconditional love we shared with our furbabies. Thank you for sharing. Kate (Gus' mom)

Dee, everytime I read one of your posts about your love for Cheeseburger they just bring tears to my eyes because they are always so beautiful. I love his pictures as well, what a handsome boy, no wonder you loved him so much. I feel your pain and sorrow as I feel the same way about my swet Peanut and I miss her every single day and long to have her with me again. The song lyrics perfectly describe the love we share with our furbabies and shows just how lucky we were to experience that type of special love. There are so many people that go their entire lives and never experience that and I feel sorry for them because that is something I would not trade for anything in the world... my time with my Peanut, even though it hurts so bad now that she is gone.
I also loved tjhe tattoo you did of Cheeseburger, so sweet. I had thought about doing something like that for Peanut too but not sure yet, I am a chicken when it comes to that, HA! Hugs Karen

That is such a beautiful song...I have heard that too and thought of my Nugget too....they really made us who we were didn't they? I have always wanted to comment on your beautiful picture of you and Cheesburger together. You know pictures speak a thousand words, and your picture of you and Cheeseburger is truly beautiful. The first time I saw it I gasped as I could feel the love between the two of you. Your Cheeseburger was so lucky to have you as a furmummy. I can tell from your posts about your baby, and also the comfort you give to others i cluding to me, that you are so special and have so much love to give. Cheesburger was lucky to have you as a mummy and I am sure that you would say you were lucky to have him too!!! Two soulmates!!! Thankyou for sharing the song...so beautiful. Lots of love Nuggetsmum Alana

I LOVE THAT SONG!!!! I'm not a huge Celine Dion fan, but I truly do love that particular song of hers. I bought her album just for that song. And you're so right - it truly does capture the relationship between human and pet. Thank you so much for sharing that with us. Cheeseburger was a very lucky kitty indeed. God bless you both.

I listen to the song often and agree that the words say it all. Thank you for sharing. These Precious souls brought so much Joy and Happiness into our lives and when they left us the Joy and Happiness left with them. I know that all our babies are safe and together at the Bridge waiting for us to arrive. I will always look forward to the day that Christopher is once again safe in my arms; I know that you are looking forward to that day with Cheeseburger as well. You and Cheeseburger are in my Prayers. Big Hugs Georgeann and Christopher Forever

Truly wonderful and warm lyrics. And totally applicable to the love we shared with our babies. I am a better person for having my Jesse in my life. She was there with me throughout everything, my marriage, my separation and ultimately the divorce - I remember vividly waking up each morning sobbing only to see her beautiful eyes and face looking at me with concern and love. She got me through, without words, she got me through everything. And now she's gone and I feel so lost - it's been 3 and a bit weeks and I still can't look at any photos of her or listen to any sad songs - the pain is still too raw. I admire how you've been able to re-focus on the wonderful, special moments that Cheeseburger brought to your life - I can only hope I'll get there soon.

You and Cheeseburger were so lucky to have each other in your lives. Your posts always show the love and devotion that was and is still there. As you said, all that unconditional love and bonding remain after they are gone. Gone from our material world but always here in the spiritual world. It is heart warming to see your memories are a reflection of the wonderful life you two shared. My memories of our departed Peaches have been a reflection of that also. More so of happier days and the joy she brought. Thank you for the post. God Bless.-----Jerry in Oklahoma.
