Unhappy You said you loved me

You said you loved me

I was small, afraid and alone when you saw me.
You said I was too little to be there alone so you bought me.
You said you were afraid, and alone, divorced you said, unloved.
But you said you'd love me.

We went everywhere together, work, play, movies.
We were best friends, we would be together forever,
Because you said you loved me.

You started leaving me at home,
a few hours in a cage, you never did before,
You said you loved me.

You said you met someone, he didn't like me.
But that was ok. All I had to do was live in my cage
when he was around.
You said you loved me.

You took me to a place, you said just for a few days.
You left me there with other ferrets, I was scared,
You said you loved me.

You came back and got me, took me home.
You put me back in that cage days at a time alone.
But you said you loved me.

He came to live with you,
And told you I had to go, I smelled, and so did the cage.
But you said you loved me.

You took me back to the shelter this time forever.
You said you didn't have time, he was there.
But you said you loved me.

I was scared, and alone again.
Shelter Mom cried,
I wouldn't eat,
I started to bite,
And all because you said you loved me.

Shelter Mom can't make me eat,
I just want to sleep, the vet is confused.
How can a healthy ferret be so ill?
A broken heart is what I have.
You said you loved me.

You see I chose not to live, I chose to wait at the bridge.
I can not live without you, and there I will wait.
You said you loved me.

Now as I cross the Rainbow Bridge,
Shelter Mom cries, she said she loved me, too.

Remember this, I will always love you.

This is for all the shelter ferrets that have crossed the
bridge because of broken hearts.

Now I'm sad

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (1 Corinthians 13:4)

I agree with you Melissa! All we can do is try to educate after all animals are living breathing creatures too just like we are!

It is a very sad writing indeed... but oh so true so I thought it would be worth sharing!

It doesn't matter what temperature the room is. It's always room-temperature.
Life is an endless struggle full of frustrations and challenges, but eventually you find a hairstyle you like.
Sad to think that when the letters 'WWF' are mentioned, most of us think of wrestlers, before the World Wildlife Fund...
The best car safety device is a rear-view mirror with a cop in it.
Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?
What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about?
All those who believe in psychokinesis raise my hand.
