Time and Pain

20 Jan

Since the passing of Tiki Tiki I have ask’d myself several times if my pain will ever go away… I know that the intense grief over the loss of a pet is normal and natural. Don’t let anyone tell you that it’s silly, crazy, or overly sentimental to grieve! But when does it stop hurting so much?

People who don’t understand the pet/owner bond may not understand this pain.

During the months I spent with Tiki Tiki he became a significant and constant part of my life. He was a source of comfort and companionship, of unconditional love and acceptance, of fun and joy and I find myself devastated by the loss of such a relationship.

So I’ll let time pass me by as I wait patiently for the feeling of emptiness to go away, for the lump that forms in my throat every time I see his pictures to stop forming. I wait for the time to come when I can laugh at his memories and not cry.
