One of my friends on FaceBook just shared this poem and I thought I would share it with my friends here at Itchmo. I don't have any more information as to the author than what is posted. If anyone finds more credit information please share it.

“You Did Me a Kindness” by Joanne (Quebec, Canada)

When my legs grew too weak to carry me,
And my tired eyes could no longer see,
When it pained me to struggle for each new breath,
When my heart beat weaker, and I drew closer to death,
You did me the kindness of letting me go.
You didn’t make me hang on when I was suffering so.
I promise I don’t think that you loved me any less,
And I love you all the more for your selflessness.
You freed my spirit from its body so wracked with pain,
And let me run the fields of Heaven, where I know we’ll meet again.

Thanks for sharing that with us. I can't help but think of my angels as I read it.

That is simply wonderful.  And it also reminds me of my wonderful cats who have gone.  Thanks for sharing.

That is beautiful, though I'm crying now.  Thankfully we have that option of freeing them from suffering.
