Do you know her?

Do you know her?

If not, you’ve missed out.

She is light and grace,

Devoted to beings who can’t speak.

But she comes to me,

After all the days and nights I left her.

Generous and kind,

The woman depended on,

To hold the frightened dog or cat.

And she holds her mother as well.

Deserved or not.

Her empathy is all encompassing.

How did someone like me

Bring forth into the world

A being as perfect as she is?

  2. How wonderful that you have found these beautiful thoughts and within you for your daughter! They would make any daughter proud, and they are gentle enough and yet powerful enough to remain in her soul for a lifetime! They likely have been long in the making, considering the severe stress you all have experienced together. That makes them even more life-giving.

  3. Janet , Your poem about Annie is so precious and what a nice photo of her and Odie!! Love All of you! Mom Landis

  4. What a perfect and beautiful tribute to your daughter. Any daughter would be thrilled to hear such words of praise and appreciation from her mom.
    As an animal rescue person, I will very much hope to meet her one day.
