Although we haven't known each other for long, I feel like there was a connection between us that defied even time and space. In these short months of getting to know you - watching you as you attempt to take flight with clipped wings, listening to you chirping your beautiful songs, and feeling your soft, clicking heartbeat in my hands - I regret to say I have missed the signs of your suffering.
I apologize immensely for not recognizing the symptoms of your condition.
I apologize immensely for not taking you to the vet immediately when I noticed differences in your behavior.
And I apologize immensely for hesitating to treat you with better care.
My heart imploded when I found you at the bottom of your cage. Wheezing, coughing, and gasping...I only wish I had been there sooner. I was completely shattered when you collapsed and died in my hands.
I am, however, honored to have accompanied you in your very last moments
of being alive...I know you're in a better place now, where you are truly free; free of suffering, free of disease...and finally free to FLY again! You are in my heart and soul forever, you brave, brave Being of Light!!!
May all who are sacred protect your soul...rest in peace my love mail-attachment.googleusercont…
