It's been 5 months without you and there is not a day where you haven't been missed. I miss your warmth:your sunny face,your warm,loving eyes,your warm feathers,your "happy parrot" aroma. I'll love you forever,my baby you will always be.We were a pair for almost 27 years;you will always be in my heart. You can shed tears that she is gone or you can smile that she has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back or you can open your eyes and see all she's left. Your heart can be empty because you can't see her or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember her and only that she is gone or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind,be empty and turn your back or you can do what she'd want:smile,open your eyes,love and go on. Anonymous Ellery,life is hard without you,but I remember you and what we shared,I cherish your memory and let it live on.I wish things had turned out differently,and that you were still here,but I know the reality...that you are gone,and life goes on.I will never forget you and the love we shared.

Dear Clo, That is such a beautiful poem, I remember when you shared it in the chat room. I can not believe it has been five months. Time goes by so fast. I am very sorry for your loss of dear Ellery. Dear Ellery Happy 5 month bridge day, I hope you have met Boo Boo and that you have become friends. Watch over your Mom she loves and misses you so very much. Please give her a sign that you are safe and waiting for her at the bridge. Hugs, Boo Boo's Mommy

Wow, your poem has put things in a lot of perspective for me. It's been only 9 days since our Jesse left us and I've been finding it terribly hard to focus on the positive. Doing a lot of guilt, "what-ifs" and "if only's", so your poem has really helped me to focus and put first and foremost what Jesse would have wanted...
Her life was a blessing and I wouldn't be who I am today without her these last 13 years.
Thank you Clo, Thank you Ellery.
