It's been about 10 months since you had to go. I have learned to tolerate life although I am still sad a lot. I think of things we did together and I smile, I cherish every moment. But there is always an ache in my heart at the same time. You are my soul mate and my safety blanket. I was only completely content with you near me.
Oscar says "Hi". His ears perk up when I mention your name.
The new guy Louie is fitting in nicely but he understands that there could only be one you. He is special too, in a different way. His middle name is Jake. Whenever the clouds are bright and beautiful I look up and imagine you sitting atop one, smiling down at me, tail wagging a mile a minute. And I smile back. I think of you every day. I want to think of you every day. I still love you with all my heart. And I want you to know that I�ll be with you again in Heaven someday. So be patient, and while away the hours with sunny days, warm fuzzy naps, giant cookies and thoughts of us being together again.
I love you sweetheart,
Open your eyes and see me there,
sitting in the other chair.
you see my eyes, what do they do?
They're staring back with love for you.
Now you're in Heaven and there's no doubt
It did not take long for me to figure out
that nothing anywhere will ever compare
to the times I watched you from my chair.
~ For Jake
