When the ones we love leave us for a time and wait on the other side of the veil, I wonder…. If they could come back for a visit, maybe a dozen years long, wrapped up in fur and unconditional love, wouldn’t they do that very thing?
Wouldn’t they sit on our laps and patiently wait for our attention?
Wouldn’t they love us unconditionally and bring comfort when we need it most.
And don’t you think, the ones we love might want to frolic and play with us, with greater abandon than they could while walking on two feet.
We sometimes recognize them when we see them. The softness in their gaze and the remembered embrace, it reaches out to us and we fall instantly in love. We don’t need words or long explanations. We just need to spend a little more time together before we can spend eternity.
