Wait for me at the Bridge Keiko...


I lost a special friend yesterday
the kind you can't replace,
and looking at her empty bed
I still can see her face.

I know she's in a special place
our Lord has for such friends,
Where meadows, fields & flowers
help make them strong and whole again.

I know she's watching over me
She'll be with me when I cry,
So with one more kiss on her beloved head
I told my friend goodbye.

Rest in peace my sweet baby cat Keiko
I miss you so much

  31. Tina, I am so very sorry for your loss. Keiko was much too young for this to happen. I hope you can take comfort in the knowledge that you gave her the best life possible while she was here, and that you acted only in her best interests at the end.

    Thanks to your blog, you will have many wonderful memories of her through pictures, and she will live on in your heart and your mind.
