When my beautiful golden Brandi passed away, I was beside myself. Then one day she appeared in my flower garden and spoke to me. If you want to read the story, go to:
http://theblackmonfamily.sylera.com and on top there is a tab called Angel Brandi. My story of my grief, what happened and how I found my 2 latest goldens Rootbeer & Mandi are there for you to read.
Anyways, I wrote this poem and it has helped so many people who have written to me and told me this.
I will share it here also

Soft whisper

My best friend spoke to me last night
a soft whisper in my ear.
I woke up and looked around the room,
I was startled, yet I had no fear.

My best friend said that all is fine
Rainbow bridge is so much more.
That there was so much love up there,
even a beautiful ocean shore.

There is fields and fields of green green grass
and the sky has different shades of blue.
There are flowers, mountains, trees and clouds,
everything they said it was, is true.

My best friend whispered in my ear last night
saying "Please don't cry or be sad.
That what was done, had to be done,
for me to live my life now, so be glad".

My best friend said that I did the right thing
an unselfish act on my part.
And that this pain & sadness I feel
will be gone soon from my heart.

I asked my best friend "How could this be
I miss you so much everyday.
That my heart hurts so much for you,
I wish there could of been another way".

My best friend whispered in my ear last night
"You will always be in my heart.
Go on & live and love another,
because we will never really be apart".

I carry your unconditional love with me
I have done this from the very start".
I whispered back to my best friend last night,
"I'll always love you with all my heart."

My best friend whispered in my ear last night
"it's time for me to go towards the light.
I just wanted to stop & say to you
go on my best friend, I'll be alright.

So good-bye my best friend as I looked up at the sky
a shooting star I see in a straight line.
Moving fast across the sky & out of sight,
I whispered,
"Good -bye my best friend, now, I'll be fine".

I am having such a hard time dealing with the loss of my Cedare..she was so precious and after 13 years of so much love died in my arms before I could get her into the vet for her last visit. I am as sad today as I was 1 month ago when this all happened. I wanted to tell you your website for your wonderful Brandi is awesome..Just beautiful and with every word written in it I can identify with your pain..Thanks fo sharing this..Erin
I am so sorry for your loss. I am writing a book in memory of Brandi called Unselfish Acts and I will contact you when I am done. I need to finish it for Brandi. Its been hard but the stories people have given me are so beautiful & from the heart. Again, I am so sorry for your loss. God Bless
My heart & prayers are with you. I know how hard it is & how devastating. I lost my Momma Dog Gypsy 1/05 at the age of 12 & then lost her daughter who was born on my thigh, Alanis 8/08. It still seems like yesterday & as time passes I still cry each & every day. They meant the world to me & my life is soooo empty without them in it. I know they are waiting for their Mommy but I want them back with me. I will keep you in my prayers, as I know how hard it is to lose such a beloved part of our family's. Bonesy AKA Leslie
Your words are beautiful Lanie, thank you for sharing them.I have many who wait at the bridge for me but there are two more recent ones with whom I am having trouble letting go. One was my girl Staffie - Harley who passed away suddenly in June 2005 and Zak - a CollieX who we helped to cross in Feb 2007. I miss them more than words can say and most days I shed tears of sorrow for them both. I should be moving on by now perhaps but I can't say that last goodbye.

Bless you for caring and for loving so well.
Thank you for the kind words. My loss is with me each and every day and I am so sorry for your loss and for your pain. God Bless.
Beautiful Poem. Brings me memories of my beloved Rio who passed last year. I'm fine now, but it takes time to heal. Although, I don't think we heal 100%, but we always have thoughts and happy memories filled with a smile : ) with time.
I never thought either that in time it would get easier or I would ever say that. It does get easier, but you never forget. Thank you for reading my poem. I am so for your loss and God Bless
my baby Coal died in my arms on july 20th, 2009. i don't know how i'll ever get through this terrible pain. but i thank you for your poem, it was beautiful.
Rebecca..I fel your pain as I am going through the same thing myself ..My Cedare died in my arms after 13 years on July 23rd,2009.
I light a candle beside her picture as soon as I am home and it's like a shrine of pictures around here.
I know people have told me it gets better, but I still feel the emptiness inside me. At first I felt like someone ripped my heart out of me ..and now I know I sure have lost a big part of it.One thing for sure her spirit is everywhere in this house. I now know how James on this site suffered the loss of his little Maui..
I know you are sad and there are so many people on here that at least you can explain your saddness to and thy wont think you have lost your mind..Just your very best friend..
They talk alot about soul mates in this world and I'm sure my Cedare was mine..
I wonder is dogs can be soul mates?
God Bless you my friend..Erin
Oh my, that is beautiful. I am so glad that there are so many that love so deeply. A truer friend could never be found, but in the heart of a dog. Thanks for sharing. So hard to say good-bye, but that day comes all to fast. We just enjoy what time we have, and try not to miss them to terribly much. But they fill up our day so much. It makes it difficult. But that there isn't any more pain...I guess that's how we get by.
this was so wonderful and helped that I may see my beloved hamilton too.... he is fading fast and my grief is overwhelming..... thank you for the poem and the inspiriation my prayers arew with you in your grief....
I feel your pain as if it where July 23rd all over again..There nothing to prepare you fr what you are going through. The people on this site where my salvation..I don't know where else I could have turned to be able to express my deepest love for my precious Cedare..It's 2 months ago now and still feels like it's happening over and over..
How long has your Hamilton been sick?
I wish I was more support but my payers are with you, You can go on www.griefworthy.com..they are remarkable
I feel so bad for you..Erin
