So Much Love in Such a Small Package

I was found in a snow bank shivering and cold,
Someone had just left me because I was old.

They misjudged my desire to continue to live,
I knew that I had so much more love that I would willingly give.

I was matted, starving and filled with parasites,
My rescue angel gathered me up and told me everything would be alright.

I was held close and kept warm until I arrived at this wonderful place,
Where I was bathed, given warm food and lots of kisses on my face.

As I gained my strength back and all of the fear left my body and mind,
I was surrounded by so much love and everyone was so very kind.

I am lying in my Mother's arms right now for this was meant to be,
For me to make my journey and visit others that are waiting for me.
I am helping Mom write this poem as she continues to hold my body close as we part,
I have left her in body, but my spirit will always be embedded in her heart.
