Darling June ,
When we brought you home that sunny day in Feb , 6 yrs ago , I had no idea of how my life was going to change . Someone said once, That a part of your soul remains unawakened till you have loved an animal. At least in our case I can vouch for this. The richnesss that you have brought to my life is unmatched. If I can be secure about someone’s affections then you are first on that list .I am quite sure ours is a relationship that is a carry forward from our previous births. There is no other way how you could love so unconditionally, be there for me when no one else was. My trust in you is absolute. Of course I don’t think I am half the person you think I am, but you are so much better and so much more humane than so many people I have known.
Such beautiful memories we have created together. If ever there was a morning and if both of us were alive , I would wake up to you pushing your snout in my face , snorting Good Morning . On good days you would jump and join me in bed .On days when I had a late night , I would find you patiently waiting in the bedroom for me to wake up , so that we could have our “Snorting Good Morning Ritual” .Of how I couldn’t wait to get back home, because I would have a deliriously happy baby waiting for me back home . And each time , each day I would get back , you would give me a hero’s welcome , like you hadn’t seen me in many, many years , though I would have left only maybe 10 mins back to get bread and milk from the grocer’s .Of how you would curl up on my shoes , in my T-shirt , in my dupatta to get your beauty sleep . Of how you took my bra to the carpenter asking him to play Tug of War with it .Of how you stole ghee rice from my plate. Of how you got so scared of your first squeaky toy and went and hid in the darkened bedroom .Of destroyed shoes , chewed Furniture , Torn books , ransacked dustbin ..Memories abound sweetheart ..And most of all , of how it was you who pulled me through the darkest days of my life . Of how you saved me .Of how you kept me sane ..
The last 2 years have been tough and you have endured the worst in these 2 years. I wish I had a magic wand to take away your suffering .I really do .
And That’s why June , you are my hero . I am blessed to have had you in my life .To have experienced such sublime love one has to be truly blessed. Love which does not ask for anything in return. I know we don’t have much time together now . I don’t know June if we should let you go .The way I see it , I know your body is struggling , but there is so much life in you . Those melting chocolate brown eyes , with the tilting head that I fall in love with over and over ..Maybe I am being selfish. I don’t know June . All I know is you have brought love and light to my life .
I pray and hope , that when the time comes and you have to go across the rainbow bridge , you go knowing that you were hugely loved and you will be hugely missed . And If I had a chance at reliving our lives , I would try to find you sooner ..
Loads of Love
