We miss you Keiko

What I wouldn't give just to pet you once again

I miss you my sweet baby cat...

One year ago today was the last time we saw our sweet Keiko.

She left much to soon for the bridge.

I know she's in a better place,
But I wish that I could see her sweet face,
I know she's where she needs to be
Even though it's not here with me

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 diamond glints on snow,

I am the sun on ripened grain,

I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.
Forever I will be with you,
Within your heart I'm born anew.


  1. That was such a wonderful tribute to sweet Keiko. We will always remember her.

  2. A lovely tribute to your precious girl; we miss her too and will never forget her...Love never dies...hugs...J, Calle, Halle, Sukki

  3. A beautiful tribute to your baby girl...was she only 3 when she passed or had you adopted her as an adult?

  4. What a beautiful post for a beautiful girl!
    We must be honest....
    Mom got tears in her eyes reading your blog...
    She thinks it's so unfair....

  16. When you said "What I wouldn't give to pet you again", I suddenly burst into tears!
    I've thought that so often about my last cat, Scampie...

    And it's a nice memory to have.

  17. Thank you all for sharing with us and for all of your purrs =^_^= it's still very hard even a year later. I think about her nearly every day. Our purrs go out to all who have also lost a member of their furry fambily <3

  18. We feel the same way about our Angel Maggie. Wouldn't it be great if Keiko and Maggie are hanging out together at the Bridge?

    Purrs and hugs to you.

  19. aww, we remembers you Keiko... purrs and love to you at teh bridge.
