Background

MacKendzie

sweet kitty girl

sweet high pitched incessant demanding
meows
the softest
snow white and ebony
fur
enveloping
simply
an
elf

an independant
confident companion
draping her limbs
over couch backs and window sills

while I

got a promotion
fell in love
had my heart broken
married wrong
had my heart broken again
moved across the country
left my friends in my favorite place
married right
blended animal families
became a teacher
made new friends
got my masters degree

lived a lifetime
in the background
for me.

seventeen
years.

My faithful friend
painting the canvas
the foundation
the home

of my life
with loyal
loving
sweetness.

I will miss her
so.

Goodbye my Kendzie girl.

I am just now reading this, and getting teary-eyed. It's so true. An animal companion is "along for the ride" through so many life changes. Hugs to you.
