Cricket's Song

The voice was like no other.....
  Her mom said it was like a large hound dog.
How can it be?
"I hear you Cricket!!!"

Cricket's story can be read at  Life at Golden Pines.
Everyone of the goldens are treasures in Kim and Carl's eyes.
When even  one  gem is missing,, a big hole is left.
Cricket was a rescue that lived for 8 months at Golden Pines.
She was part of the happy pack, and will live in our hearts forever.

When the night visited  last night
 my eyes lifted to the sky's
 and scanned to the east and to the west. ,,
I spun in circles  searching in all directions!
Then the clouds parted 
and I recognized that smile  in the star
 as it twinkled  right above me,
 it radiated  across the sky!

 I knew immediately when,  the star began to sing,
with a very loud voice !!!
The moons glow and stars shadows streamed down to my feet!
  I stood quietly gazing at the smiling star,,
 and  listening to the song that was so beauitiful,,
a song saying
 "i am okay,
"i am okay!"

"I found my first family and friends
and I am okay!
The sun shines everyday!
I am okay, and I want to tell you something else Tweedles,
tell my family at Golden Pines to always look for the smiling star
because that is me
and listen for my song!!"

Oh how I wanted to touch the star!
I wanted to tell her family!
I wanted to share words  to make their hearts heal.

Cricket was nearing 17 years when her life completed its circle, here on earth.
Things in life can change so fast,,,
and leave us very sad.
My heart hurts for her family.

Please come join me,,,
Lets sit  shoulder to shoulder in a circle
 holding paws
and sending love to
all the members of
Life at Golden Pines

As usual you have said just the right words to make us all feel better. I saw that smiling star last night as well. Now I know it was Cricket.
Love Noodles

My Akita companion named Oso grew up with me since I was two and passed away at 15 years old. I hope they get to meet eachother through that rainbow bridge along with many other animal companions. I'll send lovely prayers to Cricket's family.<3

You have written the most beautiful, kind and comforting words for our precious Cricket. She was truly a rare gem that we so loved having as part of our lives, and she is truly missed. But knowing that she is with those that loved her first gives us peace.

I like your poem for Cricket. I am so sorry about the loss to her family. I tell you what - these little pooches get in our hearts don't they and when they go - wow. Hope you are doing okay.

What a wonderful and loving tribute to Cricket my sweet girl!! i am so sorry that she has transitioned but beyond the bridge is joy, peace and lots of fun and love. it seems that what we call death is ever present! i'm finding we must begin to look at gently, with love and not fear or sadness. we are all either on this plane or beyond it but we are never lost.

happy new year to you and your mommies. you all are in my thoughts and my heart...along with Cricket and Angel Tim!
