A sad milestone

One year ago today, at nearly this moment, I lost the love of my life. My sweet dog Barley passed away and life hasn’t been the same since. Not a moment goes by when I don’t miss him. I’d give anything to see him again. That life has proceeded on without him is both comfort and curse. How can life go on without my sweet boy? And, yet it has. Days and days, an entire year. It feels like forever and nothing.

This song is for him. I have no words today.

Catch the Wind

In the chilly hours and minutes
Of uncertainty, I want to be
In the warm hold of your loving mind

To feel you all around me
And to take your hand along the sand
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

When sundown pales the sky
I want to hide a while behind your smile
And everywhere I’d look your eyes I’d find

For me to love you now
Would be the sweetest thing ‘twould make me sing
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

When rain has hung the leaves with tears
I want you near to kill my fears
To help me to leave all my blues behind

For standin’ in your heart
Is where I want to be and long to be
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

  2. Now there is a picture, Phi, Happy, Ginger and Barley all sitting at the table playing cards with eachother thinking…poor humans we have it soooo good up here.
    I miss him too Amanda, I always think of him when I think of Ginger…
