Remembered it as small and fluffy and I got it from my sister in-law. Fell in love with it for the very first time we met. Its name, Lion. A mix male maltzu, you know what I mean:> Name it Lion cause its fur so fluffy brown like a lion in NatGeo :>
Lion, I have considered him the closest family member. People say a home is not complete without a dog. I totally agree. Despite the imperfection we have, a dog is forever loyal and full of love; they don’t judge, they don’t complain and they don’t hold grudges … they don’t fail us but sadly only human do!
Time past and 12 years gone. Lion was with me for that long. WOW…!! eyes so wet with tears falling down my cheeks.
There is time for everything and till now I have difficulty excepting this. Time for Lion to depart from me was in year 2011. Lion chose to leave alone and I did not even have the chance to say good bye. I recalled, when I returned from Taipei, the moment I stepped out from the plane, messages beeped on my phone, “Lion is missing”. My heart sank and terrible thoughts has taken over me. I was distraught and hope for a miracle was I wanted for myself that time.
Well, miracle did not greet me that day. Lion could not be found despite few days and months of searching. People told me, Lion’s time was up and that he went off to be in heaven and that he love me so much that he was not willing to see me cry on his death. Lion is forever so kind, loving and thoughtful. I misses him still.
I wanted to write about him after his departure in year 2011 but I have not got the strength to do so, even now when I am writing this after a year, my tears has not dry up. The wound is still fresh, the wound is still hurting, the wound has not heal completely. I thought I can get over it but reality, I am failing.
Life goes on for me without him and I am taking it a day at a time. Slowly, hopefully I can face fact that he is not coming back.
This I dedicated to him. May you rest in peace and that you are well of – high above, I love you forever and thank you for being my precious once and forever you will be remembered in my heart.
