A time will come when my sunrise walks with you will be a memory, a series of magical moments in my heart
Till then, I memorize the way you look at me
The way you gently tug on the leash
The way you mark every tree, pole, special patch of grass saying “I was here”
The way you look at me with those soulful eyes
I memorize the way your beautiful bushy tail wags in excitement, the unique markings of your shades of brown on your beige body and the heart shaped brown spot on your back leg
I touch your chest. I feel your heart. I sense the vibration of every heart beat. Your heart sweet boy is my heart.
My heart hurts thinking of the day when this moment, this sunrise walk with you will be a memory. And I remind myself to return to this moment. I memorize and inhale every feeling, sensation, of our connection into every cell of my body.
This morning, my friend Anticipatory Grief paid me a visit. And with her came my other friend Presence.
