Goodbye my Nala

Goodbye my Nala

A Poem by Courtney Hough

She wasn’t just a cat,

She saved my life you see.

Somehow she always knew,

When depression found me.

 

She is going to die today,

And with her a piece of; I.

And while I write my ode to you,

All I can do is cry.

 

She sat on my lap one night,

While I held the blade.

She looked at me with her eyes,

Telling me to stay.

 

She held my secrets,

Never told a soul.

But today; January second,

Is just too cold.

 

Cancer has found her,

Just like depression found me.

And she has no strength,

To stay here and be.

 

So to you my little Nala,

I won’t let this cancer grow.

I’ll do the kindest thing I know how,

And let you go.

 

Because you’re not just a cat,

You are my angel still.

And God can have you back,

Sleep now, soft and still.

Heartbreaking to have to have a pet euthanized. Happened to me too, so I know how upsetting it is. You are doing the right thing. When an animal is that sick it is the kindest thing you can do. You will have lots of happy memories of little Nola, but expect to be sad for sometime because you will miss her. Your poem was so touching to read. Take care Courtney.

I had a Tootsie cat once. He was my first, then Sooty, then Oscar and Archie. Always had cats.

She was your world, and once that world is gone, it's hard to keep on going. The heartbreak is already there and will remain. There is nothing to say and the pain won't subside. It's just a matter of time before everything you know will no longer be. That's why you have to make the best of the limited time we have on this earth. Those we love, hold them tight. They will one day slip away from your grasp. But when that day comes, you want to make sure you held them as tight as you could and gave that squeeze everything you had.

So sorry for your loss, it is truly devastating. No words can take away the pain, but hopefully you may come across support and hands that are reaching out. I'm sure Nala had a wonderful time with you in her life.

A heart-felt poem indeed. Our animals are truly precious to us all. No one truly understands those relationships. My little dog is lying next to me as I write. Great work!

Thanks so much
Very touching to read. Sometime pets mean to us more than family or more than just a friend. Heartbreaking but I hope she comes back to you with her 8 more lives. you're the best owner she could ever have
