Saying "Good-bye"

Sadly, today Cuddles, one of Page's beloved kitties, passed into the Summerlands. She had to be put down as old age was becoming a serious issue and her family could no longer bear to see her suffer. It was indeed a selfless act as I, myself, have had to make such a difficult decision many times over and have felt the pain and sadness of losing a long-time treasured member of the family. She was about 16 years old.
Rest in peace, Cuddles. I am sure you will be sadly missed...

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there; I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamonds’ glint on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumns’ rain
When you awaken in the mornings’ hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft star that shines at night
I am the oceans’ calming waters,
Which carries Earth Mother’s sons and daughters
So do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die
And do not stand at my grave and mourn,
I am not there; I have been reborn
