God, that is what i want to say; just God...
Because from the depths of my disbelief i believe
and yet here i am alone, standing only barely without you,
having so carefully dug your grave, i wrapped you in
my favorite and your pink pashmina, the one you covered
with your calico-tortoise fur, the one you took to as a child
takes to a blanket - suckled, nibbled, so loved.

What then to do without you - your soft weight on my lap,
your yellow green eyes the self-same color as my own,
looking at myself, seeing you there, reflected in the iris.

How then to carry on through these dark and dank days
without your soft and velvet warmth, to no purr no clink nor
chime of bell, just the howling sound of my cry as it echoed
about the house, as he told me you had died, as i cried a thousand
times as i said No and No and No, knowing it all too true
drowing in alligator tears, knocking myself stupid to be so handicapped
to help.

Who but you could have been or be so loved. What i write is trite.
What i write is true. What i write is love and love and love,
and what i write is you. Tell me now, Does God hear this primal scream?
Where is he on this day and if here he be, then let him bless not me
but you - you with your deep and night-glow eyes, you with your
leaping great surprise, you with your velvet paw in mine.
Love, Evgenia mine you are already so very missed.

11/13/05 - for Evgenia.

This is a lovely tribute to your 'evgenia' which I know brought a lot of sunshine into your life. Months ago, someone was walking their pit bulls early in the wee morning and was evil enough to have their dogs attack my butch, now he is gone, and I still miss him.. But he brought alot of joy into my life, animals can be sensitive too.,(need alot of tenderly love and caring).

I enjoyed this heart-felt poem, just brought back memories of my butch.

jeannie: this is an awful story you tell and i am so so so so so so sorry to hear of how your Butch died. People can be so cruel and i cannot for the love of God understand how anybody could be so reckless and irresponsible that they woudl allow their animal(s) to attack another, defenseless animal.... that's just horrible.

i'm sure you have great memories of Butch as i do of Evgenia and you have to try to focus on that... it's hard at first and i'm still having a rough time, thinking i see her out the corner of my eye, missing all of her usual spots where she curled up and the gentle weight ofher on my lap....

may you and i both get through this and god bless .... thanks for your kind wishes,
