Thank you for the moments you dried my tears and made me laugh until my belly hurt.
You, my furry friend, have filled my life with joy.
I will miss getting up at 6:00 a.m. to take you outside. I would watch in amazement as you ran around the yard like a crazy force knowing that within minutes you would be ready to crawl back into bed to snuggle.
I will miss turning around and knowing that you are no less than two feet away from me. My perfect little shadow.
When I miss you, I will close my eyes and imagine you happily chasing little creatures in the most vibrant, flowering meadow. I will smile knowing that you keep company with the most beautiful of spirits.
And, I will find you again someday. This, I promise.
Love elephant and want to go steady?
