Sweet Sorrow

Romeo 070807

I hardly know what to say. Romeo was brought into my life by chance fourteen years ago and he left us yesterday. I believe I named him aptly, for no soul was ever sweeter or more unconditionally loving. His presence is missed in each moment that passes and I am lost without it.

Romeo Christmas

“Give me my Romeo; and, when he shall die,

Take him and cut him out in little stars,

And he will make the face of heaven so fine

That all the world will be in love with night,

And pay no worship to the garish sun.”

Romeo and Juliet, Act III, Scene ii

  1. I’m so, so sorry Michelle. I know the pain that you feel and my heart goes out to you. We’re so blessed that these creatures of God’s come into our lives and share their hearts and souls with us…it hurts so badly when they have to go. Romeo will see you again someday. And you will see him.

  2. I’m so sorry you lost your beautiful Romeo. The saddest days I’ve ever had are when I’ve had to say good-bye to a sweet feline buddy. My condolences to you. (((hugs)))

  4. I’m so sorry you lost your Romeo. He was a beautiful cat. I have lots and lots of them, and believe me, I know the attachment of the heart. I’m glad he spent his life with someone so caring.

  5. Michelle – I am so sorry to hear about your loss – it is so painful to lose a furry family member – that is exactly why we don’t have any pets right now – losing our Egyptian Mau 10 years ago to cancer at age 8 was just too traumatic for us to bear. My heart goes out to you and Eric.
