     Many years ago I had the privilege of meeting and working with a songwriter named Arthur Kent.  He had a hit song in the early 60's-- "The End of the World"--which just about sums up everything that I'm feeling today.  I hope, wherever you are now, Mr. Kent, that you don't mind my using your words here for my little Teddy's belated 6-month Bridge Day.  (I'm just changing one little part in the first stanza).


               WHY does the sun go on shining?

               WHY does the sea rush to shore?

               Don't they know it's the end of the world 'cause you're not with
                    me anymore?


               WHY do the birds go on singing?

               WHY do the stars shine above?

               Don't they know it's the end of the world?  It ended when I lost
                     your love.


                I wake up in the morning and I wonder
                why everything's the same as it was.

                I can't understand, no I can't understand
                how life goes on the way it does.


                WHY does my heart go on beating?

                WHY do these eyes of mine cry?

                Don't they know it's the end of the world?  It ended when

                      you said good-bye.





     I love you and miss you, my darling Teddy.  I see you in my mind and

                       feel you in my heart.

      Thank you for your little signs.  They fill my life with the knowledge

      that someday I will be with you again.

                                      Love forever---MaMa

Helen,

The song is so true.  I know it's so hard to believe its been 6 months.  Sometimes it seems like hours, days and sometimes is seems like forever.  They will never leave our hearts.  I know Teddy and Nina are together at the Bridge, I think they are probably best friends.  

My thoughts are with you, I truly understand.

Dear Helen,

I remember that song very well, and I think it is a beautiful tribute to your Teddy and how much you are missing her.  Reading the words brought tears to my eyes, because I feel the same way about losing my Max.  Thank you for sharing it with us. I know how hard it is to go on without your sweet girl, and I am so sorry for the sadness you are feeling.  Thank you for sharing Teddy's picture! I've said before that your Teddy is so beautiful...she looks so soft and cuddly.  I am sure that her celebration at the Bridge was filled with fun and friends.

Happy 6 Month Bridge Day, Teddy!!! 

Keep sending your signs down to your MaMa.

 

Hugs to you-

Joanne ~ MaxsMom

Dearest Helen:
I remember that song so well and it is perfect.  Thank you for sharing the words with us.  I know that losing Teddy has been such a nightmare for you.  We will miss our Precious Angels Forever.  They will Always be safe in our Hearts. I know that Christopher is always with me as I can feel his presence every minute of every day.  Like Teddy Christopher is Always sending me signs. I know they do that so we know that they are OK.  Tomorrow is going to be such a difficult day for so many of us. We are so fortunate that we have each other to get us through this overwhelming pain.  I know that Christopher and Teddy will be waiting for us when we arrive at the Bridge just as they waited for us every night when we came home.  You and Teddy are Always in My Prayers.

HAPPY SIX MONTH BRIDGE DAY PRECIOUS TEDDY.  PLEASE STAY SAFE UNTIL YOUR MOMMY ARRIVES AND PLEASE WATCH OUT FOR CHRISTOPHER FOR ME.  MAY GOD'S ANGELS KEEP YOU SAFE FOREVER.
 
Big Hugs
Georgeann and Christopher
Forever

Dear Helen,

I do remember that song and the words ring so true. I can remember in times of grief being surprised that life is just going on-the sun is shining-the birds are singing-WHY? It is a surreal

feeling. I can remember sitting in a group of people and having something

trigger emotions that make my eyes fill with tears, while everyone else sits there oblivious to the swell of emotions

that I am feeling. The anniversaries are

so hard as are holidays without a loved one. I wish you gentle breezes and peace to your heart.

 

Love and Blessings,

Carol

 

 

Happy Six Months Teddy-I know you had a great

celebration.

Dear Helen,

I am sorry to be late as I saw this late at night and thought I had replied as I intended to.  I still hear that lovely song once in a while and often the same thoughts go through my mind.  That is nice that you worked with the writer and have that special connection with that song.

The six month is an especially hard one, they all are but that one is like a crossroads: surviving half a year without Teddy's physical presence, halfway to a year but the grief just continues.

The sun still shines, but it doesn't seem as bright.  The birds sing, but it doesn't sound as cheerful.  I am so glad that he is sending you little reminders.  May the sad memories be gently replaced by the many more happy ones.

Beautiful Six Month Bridgeday, Precious Teddy! A little belated

Love from Tweeny's Anna

Thank you to Punkin Mummy!

   Thank you Melissa, Vicky, Joanne, Georgeann, and Carol (Carewolf).  Your words of love and support are so appreciated.  I know we all have been through these difficult periods at one time or another, and it's so comforting to know we have this "sanctuary" as I call it, to come to when those waves of sadness truly hit.
    I will always be thinking about you and the rest of my Petloss family, and I hope that I can be helpful to others as they have been to me.

               Many, many hugs & thanks to you---Teddy's Mom
