Although Marilyn had never had horses, she loves her dogs as much. She lives in Fla. and was there for me when I had to put down my Arabian, Kasheer. She is devoted to watching Dreamer and Miranda on cam. Thank you my friend, this will help me as I go thru my life without my Bumble Bee. I have never seen this poem before...... Now I need more meds!

GOD'S Bumble Bee

I'll lend you for a little while

My grandest mare, He said,

For you to love while she's alive

And mourn for when she's dead.

It may be one or twenty years,

Or days or months, you see.

But, will you, till I take her back,

Take care of her for me?

She'll bring her charms to gladden you,

And should her stay be brief,

You'll have treasured memories

To bring solace in your grief.

I cannot promise she will stay,

Since all from earth return.

But, there are lessons taught on earth

I want this mare to learn.

I've looked the wide world over

In my search for teachers true.

And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes

With trust Theresa, I have selected you.

Now will you give her your total love,

Nor think the labour vain,

Nor hate Me when I come

To take Bee back again?

I know you'll give her tenderness

And love will bloom each day.

And for the happiness you've known

Forever grateful stay.

But should I come and call for her

Much sooner than you'd planned,

You'll brave the bitter grief that comes

And someday understand.

Theresa, that poem really helped me, too, when I lost my beautiful little Luna. She put up the good fight, but ultimately sprouted her ANGEL WINGS. I had some tough years, and it just seemed like the straw that broke the camel's back. I still can't read it without bawling, but the sentiment does ring so true.

Be gentle with yourself. (((((HUGS)))))

It is so tough to let them go...feels like betrayal, somehow, but I know they would want us to come to peace with our grief.

I'm glad you are able to find some comfort in this difficult time.
